    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Great focus and a common objective throughout the division. Vast majority of people seem to love working here and very helpful. Great work-life balance and management who generally care about the employees.

    Cons

    So far I have not encountered any major issues. Like every company in the world, nothing's perfect however compared to other major corporations this one is far better than most.

    Big corporation. Difficult to make changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more innovative, you are resting on the history of the company. Nest kicked your tail and that should be a wake up call.

    Pros

    Benefits, Culture, Leadership, Career Advancement.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say about this company! Loved it there and wish I could be affiliated with Honeywell again one day!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked for the Chandler, AZ office for a short time in 2014 as a SR Site IT Leader and wish I had never left! I had an accident and had to leave but if I could I would come back in a heart beat. I now live in Tucson, AZ and would love to work for the Honeywell in the Tucson, AZ area. Great company!!! Management keep doing the great job you are doing!!!

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Pay was excellent, good benefits (healthcare starting diminishing but to be expected with ACA), flexibility on telecommute.

    Cons

    Could definitely be stressful and hectic at times, high tempo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with hiring as you are doing, going to be tough to replace aging workforce.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Very concerned with employee personal safety. No micromanagement, you are on your own.

    Cons

    No training on tasks performed, just on corporate boilerplate. No coordination between coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let local management guide you to issues at hand locally.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Typical large corporation environment. Some groups have the ability to work from home which is a nice benifit when you have children to care for.

    Cons

    Lay offs. The company is driven to reduce cost and that means being in constant fear of being laid off. Big push to eliminate US positions and send them over seas. Insurance is high deductible plan where nothing is covered until you reach $4000.00 out of pocket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit sending all the jobs over seas. Show the same type of loyalty to your employees as you expect to recieve from them.

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    **Stability of employment, great vacation benefits as seniority grows
    **There is always opportunity for overtime due to lean workforce,
    **Excellent opportunity to learn lean / six sigma methodologies with the Honeywell Operating system

    Cons

    Poor follow up with HR related issues
    Too lean of a management core allow for many issues to be left unattended / unresolved
    Poor level of accountability specially on the manufacturing floor
    Talent base is largely gone... unwillingness to attract talent to stay competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must move away from "long distance" supervision, has never worked... never will
    Must increase the level of accountability on all tiers
    Must become more engaged on the floor in order to find out the true cause of the problems
