    I worked at Honeywell as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    This company is a fantastic place to do an internship. I got hands-on experience which my prospective employers are pleased with. My father has been working here for 27 years as an electrical engineer and has nothing but great things to say about the company; they have treated him very well.

    Cons

    The health insurance plan could be better and there is no pension (although this seems to be the trend at most employers nowadays).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Personal growth is there if you push hard enough, promotions vary by department, benefits were once very good.

    Cons

    Lack of loyalty. Benefits have declined over the years but upper management gets rewarded bonuses for work that someone else is doing. Credit is not given where it need to be leaving low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You people are your assets not your product. Once this is realized morale will change as long as environment changes with it.

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The company was great to work for, the people were very kind, responsive, outgoing and great to work for. The supervisors were very good to work for because when I had questions I could call them and have them answered. The work schedule was great because I got to choose the time for the first appointment. The training process was great and greatly improved my understanding of my responsibilities of the job.

    Cons

    There was a lot of paperwork that had to be done on a daily basis, it was very time consuming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go paperless, using Ipads.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than a year

    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.
