    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 as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers who would explain things to me, although my boss seemed to get frustrated whenever I didn't know something that he thought I should know.

    Cons

    Almost everyone there is at least in their 40's. As a college student I felt a little out of place. The environment is dead. The campus is dead. At times it made me depressed how dull it was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more younger people. Get better food. The cafeteria is horrible and better food would have made me much happier.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company makes money so it can provide a steady work enviroment, with low lay off rate, no over time. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    The management focuses on profit, not people. It makes good money but always tries to cut back spending on employees. Benifit is very limited. Low level employees don't have incentive bonus, nor discounted stock purchase plan, and pay more and mor eon health insurance every year. No raise for a few yeas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they care about advices.
