    Pros

    It is a safe clean place to work. The people have been through so much with Kyote's strange HOS ideas we all have that in common.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as a promotion at Honeywell, there are simply job postings that you must apply for. With this policy many many experienced employees must leave their department in order to get better paying positions thus causing a drain on talent and causing a strain on the departments. Because your whole raise for that year is only 0-3% your salary does not go up very fast. There are no cost of living raises, Honeywell has figured out how to make the cost of living stand still for the last 25 years. There are no Christmas bonuses and there are no suggestion awards, Honeywell calls them Kaizens and forces employees to give them 12 of your improvement ideas every year. employee reviews are a joke. It always comes down to whether or not your manager likes you and like I said it will only 0-3% while your heath care will go up about 15% every year consistently. Employees are asked to more more tasks every year, all technicians and assemblers now must sweep and mop the floor even though we have a house keeping. They contracted it out and our plant must pay them more to do their jobs so to save money we must do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give Kyotes bonus to the hard working employees and put the plagiarizing, employee hating Kyote out to pasture. It will make it a better place to work.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    I worked as an intern for Honeywell Aerospace and absolutely loved it! The people are great and very interested in seeing you succeed. Interns have a great chance for future employment, they love bringing them back either for another internship or full time! The company was great about holidays and celebrating employee involvement.

    Cons

    Honeywell Aerospace is a large company so it can occasionally feel like you know no one outside of the small group you work with.

    Pros

    If you are a self-motivated ladder climber, you will find yourself moving up if you have the right talent. Leadership has changed a few times in ten years and I think it is at its best so far.

    Cons

    Health Insurance Benefits are not nearly good enough for a company this size. If you move from one position to another, compensation is not on par with the national average.

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

    Pros

    A place where everyone's ideas are heard. A strong focus on continuous improvement at all levels of the organization. A place where you really own your own career.

    Cons

    Very long hiring process compared to similar companies. Potential for high subcontract workforce to offset long and slow hiring process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire fast and hire smart. Great people are being lost to competitors that bring talent in to their organizations with velocity.

    District management is responsive and works actively to overcome cons and is focused on quality service.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and management
    Many managers want their employees to succeed in their careers
    Diverse company with connections to many channels
    Strong sales organization
    Deep knowledge sharing process

    Cons

    Self insured health program (high premium)
    Bureaucratic
    Merit raises would be nice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to look after your employees and their careers. When you help clear tape for them to progress, they work harder in the interim and will reflect positively on you as they move up.

    Creative compensation would help produce more results and increase productivity.

    Cons

    The health insurance and benefits package is not very competive. In some case it is actually cheaper to get insurance on your own.
