    Worst work environment that I worked ever. Worst decision to join this company and best decision to leave the company..

    Engineering (Former Employee)
    Tampa, FL

    ProsCutting edge technology. Big company and potentially opportunities are there for the taking if able to relocate to other sites. Lot of training on web if at all there is time outside work.

    ConsNo professionalism, no respect or courtesy. Absolute disregard to personal and family time. Create a sense of insecurity in employees through the dreaded review system. It is a modern day slavery. Once the project is done, kick the employees out through reviews that are full of lies. Working at such companies shows how a dictatorship is in a democratic setup.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the small sites and what is happening there. They still bear your "Honeywell" name. There are ways to inspire employees to work voluntarily for long hours out of their own passion, not by brute force method by way of threat or insecurity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Honeywell is a great place to work.

    Engineering Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsIt's a Fortune 20 company that has made significant progress reinventing itself in the last 10 years. Process improvement is a fact-of-life.

    ConsMany of the smaller groups within Honeywell are highly distributed, to the point of being fragmented. It is challenging to work in this type of structure. Career growth opportunities are bountiful only if you live in a city that has a major corporate office, or are willing to relocate.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Honeywell, a step back in time.

    Technician III (Current Employee)
    Plymouth, MN

    Pros-The pay is on par with industry standards for the job title
    -12.5% night shift differential
    -Expects their employees to become fishermen rather than relying on others

    Cons-Benefits for a company this size are pathetic
    -No perks
    -Being ran by people who struggle sending emails and are terrified of technology in the workplace
    -Honeywell would rather spend money on acquisitions than improving and sustaining their current entities
    -Outdated technology and the unwillingness to catch up with the competition
    -Near zero HR presence
    -Engineers are given too much control of the business side of running things

    Advice to Senior Management-The pay is fine but the perks and benefits of working here are non-existent and need immediate attention
    -Step into the future and embrace technology, its not just a fad going away. If you did it would make HOS a truly effective tool rather than an obstacle for true productivity

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company with lots of opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou can move to a different business after a while and still within honeywell. It spans across several industry sectors.

    ConsSome positions may require clearance and like many big companies things may not move as quickly as you want.

    Poor attempt at culture, old & stagnant work force, Lots of BS

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsDecent pay, ok work-life balance (better for positions than others), some great people in my organization who I enjoy working with,

    ConsHoneywell totes that they have a culture, but it is non- existent. The benefits are a joke- healthcare is expensive, cannot carryover vacation time from year to year, sad raises, limited opportunity for advancement in many sites, no HR presence, the HOS is more BS than function, they say they promote development- but it is VERY limited, management is incredibly slow to make decisions or react, poor on-boarding experience.

    Honeywell has its HOS- Honeywell Operating System- there is so many BS hoops to jump through in a day that it is a major waste of time (standard work, 5S, BOP, CI's, tier meetings, etc). They are quick to point a finger to find blame and the they are more interested in standardizing everything than giving people tools to think.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe majority of the workforce is close to retirement age and Honeywell as an organization does not do a good job of retaining its younger employee base and an even worse job at backfilling positions. You may be in trouble in a few years as all the experience and knowledge is leaving. Stop giving such poor raises to employees when you are having successful years and look into your benefits options and development opportunities to help get & retain younger employees.
