One of the few companies with great benefits, even after the recession. Lots of room for growth and development, training, etc...

Expect to work LONG hours. Some employees are depressed and exhausted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (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.
