    Very nice people to work with

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Good pay and pretty flexible hours

    Cons

    Benefits seem to be getting worse every year. Also, a lot of the workforce is very close to retirement so there isn't much motivation and a lot of people are lazy and just 'riding out' the last few years before they retire

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Louisville, KY
    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
