    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Great team of intelligent people. Promotes internal innovation and knowledge base growth.

    Cons

    Contract worker - no benefits, no paid holidays or time off. Office building needs an update - electronic equipment is new.

    It is a good company with a lot of room for moving around and expanding your skills.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a large portfolio of product so it is stable even if one sector has a decline. It is also easy to move around the company and really figure out what you enjoy doing as a career. The company also recognizes dedicated workers and moves them up the food chain by bouncing through different departments.

    Cons

    The benefits are awful. There is a high deductible plan in play right now so a simple visit to the doctor, dentist or anything health related is a real financial struggle. Time-off is standard for a large corporation but getting unpaid time off is next to impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the good work of promoting fair and dedicated upper management. All of the managers in the engineering departments are excellent. Also, the health of the company depends on the health of the employees, so you may want to rethink your health policy before it bites back.

    Pros

    Across the board Honeywell techs are in an above average class where grading capabilities means an a- or b+ is merely average. They recognize and point talent to a point best for the team and customer.

    Cons

    very powerful middle management to not cross in a bad way. One will learn golf or fail.. lone wolf types wont do so well. Superior talent can be threatening to some fellow techs causing issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do not promote alcohol, period. too much buddy drinking peer pressure.

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

    Pros

    Interesting technologies. Good corporate leadership. Competitive salaries. Opportunity for advancement in either technical or managerial roles. Training opportunities abound for the self-motivated.

    Cons

    Long hours expected. High level of demands. Health insurance expensive and provides poor coverage. Emphasis on process instead of products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expectations on employees are too heavy, forcing us to make work-versus-family decisions in favor of work far too often. Continually weakening benefits year after year is demoralizing to the employees.

    Too large to make the employee feel any personal touch. Sometimes frustrated withe the unecessary administrative requirements that did not make sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure the managers reach out to their employees to make them feel appreciated.
