    Pros

    Honeywell invests in its employees and is truly dedicated to employee growth and development.

    Cons

    You have certain managers in leadership roles who shouldn't be managers, not of their own fault mind you, they simply haven't been mentored or provided with enough leadership training. Its very evident however and it represents a serious problem to moral in certain parts of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention - you have some managers who don't belong managing people, you know who they are and you have certainly received enough feedback from the Honeywell Clearwater site to know who they are, you simply refuse to act on it and make the changes necessary to coach them and remove them.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive for my band scale
    Retirement pension is rare in today's industry. Honeywell is one of the few
    401k matching is excellent especially after 3 years

    Cons

    HOS is bulky and slows everything down with over analysis of the basics
    Production Driven instead of people driven
    very little to now progression or pay raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn to balance the workforce progression with longevity. HOS is not always the answer! Common sense should be the first rule of thumb.

    Pros

    The partner discounts that Honeywell offers are phenomenal. Also, there's plenty of business sectors that offer lateral as well as upward growth.

    Cons

    This particular office was the biggest challenge. The culture at the Atlanta HBS office was TERRIBLE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff is a reflection of management's best and worst qualities. Management should not perpetuate or encourage negative culture in the sense of co-worker relations.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with quite a few co-workers, but management has a total different perspective about how to really run a business. They conspire to cover up how they are ripping the company and corprate off BIG TIME !

    Cons

    Just trying to do your job, and not everybody elses ! They pray on certain employees that are very good at what they do, while the slaggers get away with doing nothing, and working all of the over time, and get all of the prais !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start relying on the productive employees,and getting the slaggers to do their jobs ! Stop firing the good ones, and get rid of the bad ones !

    Pros

    It can be difficult to get your foot in the door at Honeywell but it is worth the persistence. So many people here have longevity of 20, 30, 40 years which is, virtually, unheard of these days. One of the first things I noticed on my first day was that most people were smiling and some were whistling as they walked down the hall. This is a fantastic, stable company with smart, great people. Honeywell tries to always promote from within and encourages learning, growing, and moving, laterally or upward, to improve your knowledge and gain new strengths. The benefits are decent, although not what they once were. Leadership is superior and they are always pushing themselves and all employees to continually improve. Great leadership + great employees = a great company.

    Cons

    Hours can sometimes be long, but hard work is recognized.

    Pros

    Great work experience. Good working conditions. Interesting assignments. Great opportunities for women. Good place to work for the younger employee.

    Cons

    Youth biased. Does not value the older employee. Compensation gets stagnant unless you go into management , Benefits have consistently gone down over the years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good opportunities for younger woman and people who are good talkers and self promoters. Shrinking violets will get trampled.
