    Honeywell Aerospace is a decent workplace with some nice perks and horrible benefits.

    Pros

    Opportunities to practice and engage in different departments to learn new skill sets. Travel to remote sites can be fun and interesting. Dining cafe located within the facility. Bravo award system is nice for earning cash compensation.

    Cons

    Too much micro-management (daily email status reports, daily system status sheets, daily morning standups; to include safety topics not pertaining to work, enforced process improvements; minimum count yearly, enforced safety calls; minimum count yearly) requires extra time and effort to meet company standards.

    Benefits are atrocious requiring a high amount of out of pocket expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Stop forcing employees a minimum count of safety catches by encouraging them to participate through other means. Same goes with process improvement ideas, don't base promotions or annual reviews on a minimum count. Please consider another carrier for benefits. Every employee knows this needs to change, every employee.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work in. They're in alot of cool industries and you learn about and can get exposure to some different things. If you're driven and hard working you can make a great career in this company.

    Cons

    Very much a corporate company, and they're very process oriented and risk averse. There's alot of day to day minutia you have to go through to be successful at this company, so if you don't like it don't work here.

    Pros

    Honeywell was a very structured company with processes and procedures to guide your work. Pay was very good as were benefits (as long as our division was doing well). Good career opportunities within the company, although not necessarily in the same divison.

    Cons

    The rigid structure, bureaucracy and levels of approval could delay projects. Our division was perpetually for sale.

    Pros

    Honeywell is a good company with good salary and benefits. A lot of opportunities for brilliant employees, a lot of diversification

    Cons

    Too much red tape, as a manager you need to ask for permission for everything. Upper management is never satisfied with results, they are always asking for stretch goals.
