    I have been working at Honeywell (More than a year)

    Pros

    Honeywell is a great company work for. It truly cares about its employees with the integration its Honeywell Operating System(HOS), where it not only focusing on driving results but also developing its people and culture with the OD group. If you don't believe it just take a look at its stock price vs. its competitors.

    Cons

    Some times it could be frustrating based on Annual goals set without the infrastructure of supporting them. Challenging goals are great as it enables sites & functions to come together and work with each other, but it also hurts they end of working against each other.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving HOS and building talent - it is a long term investment with high paybacks!

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

    Pros

    None, cannot think of one positive thing to say and I managed staffs for 27 years.

    Cons

    If you enjoy going to work and not being spoken to for the full shift,watching operators texting or listening to music, playing on the internet then this is the job for you. The atmosphere borders on HOSTILE!!!!

    Advice to Management

    QUIT HIRING TEMPS WITH THE PROMISE OF FULL TERM EMPLOYMENT, TREAT THEM AS ASSETS AND NOT DISPOSABLE GARBAGE.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some good people. Great engineers and maintenance people. I learned a lot about process analysis and problem solving.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible now, cost cutting always comes at the employees expense. Upper management has ridiculous expectations. Management in my facility had the most turn over I've ever seen at any job. No work/life balance. I hated being micro-managed from some upper management that was 2000 miles away and understood the process only on paper and none of them have a clue as to what's really going on. I met some of the dumbest people with degrees that I wouldn't trust to make me a big mac correctly. Lazy employees get rewarded, hard working employees are expected to pick up their slack with no reward. Worst "raises" I've ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Hold all employees accountable for their work! To HR, you keep confusing education with intelligence. Treat your employees with respect and listen to what they have to say, they know their job a lot better than you do. Up your pay scale and pay people what they're worth. Stop taking money out of employees pockets. And the biggest thing I can say, STOP TELLING THE EMPLOYEES THAT THEYHAVE TO KEEP THE STOCK HOLDERS HAPPY!!! THE EMPLOYEES ARE STOCK HOLDERS TOO!!! Stop burning out your people.

    Pros

    Highly skilled resources. Most everyone that I've met is happy to contribute / provide assistance. Management listens and has provided assistance on many occasions.

    Cons

    Not crazy about the benefit package. Would be better if they offered more than a HRA plan. Some areas still siloed.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People ( Engineers) at the tactical level are some of the brightest and most unappreciated people in the company. Vast amount of Managers / Hourly are high quality people with integrity-

    Cons

    Leadership at the Director and junior VP is very suspect with moving metrics that can never be achieved. A promotion to Director level is usually based on vague perceptions ( e.g. are you liked, Alumni, Football fan buddies, golf buddies, kids go to same school etc)

    Advice to Management

    Promote people on their skills, abilities and talents - "lots of deadwood" in the mid level Director level position that should be "Outed "- their goal is self preservation at any costs -

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, working virtual is commonplace.work site has received upgrades recently to common areas and landscaping

    Cons

    Attrition is rarely or slowly replaced. Remaining workforce is heavily loaded. Significant coordination with global resources makes for long workdays

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize your teams work, everything can't be the same priority. Communication of Relative importance would help employees better decide priority as well.
