    Pros

    In my almost 20 years here (started at Allied Signal), the single most impressive attribute is the good people I work with. Honeywell only hires the best and those that prove otherwise don't last very long. Dave Cote is one of the best CEOs in the world and it shows in everything including our stock price and consequently, my 401k balance.

    Cons

    No company is perfect but it is hard to come up with anything bad. If pressed I'd say I'm concerned where our health insurance benefit is headed, it has gone downhill rapidly over the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    When it come to our IT strategy, please keep in mind you have to go beyond dollars when considering what projects to work. If we get to focused on cost savings we run the risk of missing efforts that truly benefit our businesses. Not everything worth investing in looks great on a prioritization spreadsheet.

    Pros

    Benefits package, 401k matching

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement are hard to come by, can receive training for other areas but won't necessarily be paid for acquiring those new sets of skills

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the hard worker's who help you all flourish when goals are met. Give out incentives for maintaining and over achieving the company goals. Scratch my back and we'll scratch yours.

    Pros

    Excellent training, great place to learn.

    Cons

    Too much corporate mentality. One size fits all philosophy doesn't work for all businesses. Almost non-existent health benefits, new hires get no pension, poor 401K. Senior management is terrible. Not employee oriented.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to employees that have been in the trenches for years instead of implementing policies and changes out of a canon.
