    Smart company

    Market Research Analyst (Former Employee) Golden Valley, MN

    ProsI had a great manager who cared about my professional development and measured my success based on clear goals. I was able to learn a lot about the company and interact with many different functions.

    ConsA lot of employees are chronically unhappy and crabby! If you don't have a good manager it could be unbearable. It can be hard to find the right people to work with in such a large, matrixed organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Things have changed over the last 10 years but it is still a good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany terrific people who work very hard at their jobs.
    A good place to be challenged on several levels.
    You are given the opportunity to grow as your experience level grows.

    ConsSome business groups within the org. are too concerned about having a body that lives local to HQ and has an MBA versus actually hiring the right person for the position. Now those groups are at a point where product management and engineering have no experience/knowledge of our business and build products they want versus what the market requires.
    Too many processes, example - to roll out NPI generally takes 2 years (and that is using the Agile engineering process).
    Benefits continue to slip. Over the past 10 years we have gone from a company that took care of its employees to a culture of cut costs and increase margins so we can boost the stock price so our CEO and Co-Chairmen can make 200x the average employee salary. There is a balance point that needs to achieved.

    Not The Same As AlliedSIgnal

    ProsWhen it was AlliedSignal, training was second to none. They paid their employees for new ideas, work performed and provided a very productive work environment. AlliedSignal actually encouraged Six Sigma.

    ConsThe culture changed after it became Honeywell
