I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

I can't say much good about this company.

Cons

Like most big companies, benefits continue to erode. It is a shame that people used to be it's greatest asset; now it is the shareholders, and CEOs making the big bucks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some good, clever engineers to be found there. Good people in general.
    Have implemented DO-178B processes better than many companies I have been to.
    Stays current with modern technology.
    Engages in ambitious and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Opinions: Too much work is outsourced.
    Concept of getting 24 hours of operation with off-shore outsourcing does not work effectively.
    Domestic cohesiveness, the oneness and pride in ones work have suffered from outsourcing.

    Many schedules are simply unrealistic and doomed to run late and over-budget.

    Fear of a layoff has become an implicit driver to overwork the engineers.

    Observations: Domestic engineers have become mostly facilitators and auditors.
    Direct engineers are over-worked. There are frequent layoffs, particularly with contractors.
    Cost-cutting methods are sometimes baffling. Someone once said Honeywell will spend $100 just to save $5!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop transferring the knowledge base and control of work offshore.
    Nearly all the "hard" engineering work seems to be done offshore

    Examine your cost-cutting methods. Are they costly cosmetics, self-defeating or beneficial and realistic?

    Construct sensible schedules. Realize that only so much can humanly be done in 8 hours a day. Extended hours look good in reports but they give diminishing and buggy returns.

    To get a feel of what's really going on, spend some hours unannounced and informally with the engineers in the labs.Talk to support people e.g. computer admins and lab techies, but those not under your administration so they don't feel intimidated.
    Not all work-related information is expressed in status meetings or morning stand-up huddles.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Overtime makes up for poor wage
    Still working through the recession

    .

    Cons

    Management has no commitment to there programs, ie. HOS.
    Upper management disconnected to what actually happens on shop floor.
    Extreme amount of management and supervisor turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire supervisors from within, or at least people that have worked in a factory previously.
