I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

If you can manage to survive the layoffs and pressure, the pay and bonuses are good. Manager is flexibile for work hours to accomodate work/life balance and kids.

Cons

Raises are average, if any. No longer offers any retirement plan beyond 401k and matching funds.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement 360 degree reviews to understand the employee's perspective. However, if you can't stand the answer, don't ask the question.

Stop the trend of Sr. Managers without direct reports.

    Corporate culture including management-employees interaction is completely communist style driven.

    Pros

    There are no "pro" reasons to work at Honeywell, a company engaged in self-sabotage for the benefit of a communist style elite, committed to maximize their gains at the expense of the company.

    Cons

    The multi-layered management is heavily trained and structured in a iron-clad reporting network functioning with the same grassroots philosophy as the one perfected by the organized crime organizations. There is a gigantic and impenetrable Iron Curtain between management and employees. There is no one to go to and adddress concerns as an employee, since management/HR are committed to the vow of absolute blind bonding amonst themselves and against the fellow employees. The annual reviews are blatant mockeries. Managers are delivering their "evaluations" based on bogus assessments and claims, knowingly so, affording a sarcastic hideous smile while delivering your "development in place" plan for the next period. No performance review complaint has been ever resolved, indifferent of how strong was the evidence presented to support such claim. Illustrous is the case of an employee reveiving the exceptional assessment "Exceeds Honeywell Standards" from the Program Manager he worked for the entirely complete year, and yet the Manager responsible for this employee's annual performance review, downgraded him to "Below Honeywell Standards", requiring his inductance in a Performance Improvement Plan for the next year. Mind bending!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company can be turned around and survive, once your employees are not regarded as your enemies or inferior-class beings, and by actively pursuing upward mobility in parallel with the vitally important rotation of management that held on to their seats for more than, say, 10 years. They should change departments and locations and will have to re-prove and re-brand themselves in new environments. It has been historically proven that holding on for too long to a leadership function will only lead to complacency, autocracy, opression and regress. Look what this management style achived in the 50 years of communism in Europe and beyond.

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    You are indoors and there is free coffee, they keep the bathrooms clean, I can't think of anything else.

    Cons

    30 minute lunch breaks (on your time)
    psychotic security staff will write you up if you take home their cheap plastic badge
    Project Managers that have no skills
    competitive cut-throat staff
    No clear communication on deliverables
    Management via Outlook and Lync
    Male staff will flirt with your wife out in the parking lot
    They can cuss and make jokes but, you can't

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give flexible time and respect the opinions of your employees. I know of course that would be impossible.
