    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay with a very competitive bonus plan.. It is project based work so you need to be willing to put in the extra hours to meet deadlines, but with that said you'll have more intense work some months as well as slower months.. it balances out. Travel 30-40% of the time, will always fly you back for the weekend with options for a company car if driving more frequently if you live near by. You can work from home or office, everything is remote.

    Cons

    Since everything is remote, your coworkers are just voices over the phone.. Took me over a year to meet my mentors in person which makes building relationships harder. Also for those that like the office atmosphere this isn't for you.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Louisville, KY

    I worked at Honeywell as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The office I worked in gave me a lot of responsibility as an intern, got to do a lot of development and work with the engineers on their projects. Became a part of the development team, went to meetings, and presented my work to executives.

    Cons

    The upper management is not very in tune with the the individual offices, the employees are often overworked and the offices are understaffed. The pay was stingy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing more attention and funds to the needs of your employees instead of keeping as much money in hand as possible

    Pros

    Good company culture. Different locations of each business segment are well connected. Company boasts a lot of experts in their field.

    Cons

    Culture can be a little stagnant due to impressive products. Innovation can be improved upon. Benefits are average, nothing spectacular.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Intern program is very strong, continue to press and expand it. In general, press for more innovation through research and development.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay for the area in which I live, great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Ended a contract ( 1 Year) while 10,000 miles away living on a ship in the middle of no where only to apply for the same job on shore to be told I did not have the training to be employed again. This is and still is a shock to me for I even received accolades in the form of a Letter of Achievement from their customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the shady hiring practices
