    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance is the only pro about the company.

    Cons

    The security division is in bad shape in terms of resources, moral, and leadership. You may have big ego maniacs elsewhere but it will be hard to top the ones that hold leadership positions in Honeywell security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bullying your employees. It's a shame how leadership treats staff. Start treating people how they should be treated and stop allowing egos to get in the way of progress.

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer  in  Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Bangalore (India)

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Can come at 8:15 - 9am and leave at 5:15 - 6pm
    They won't terminate people. So even without much efforts one can stay here lifelong

    Cons

    - no growth at all
    - rating is from 1 - 9 ( best - worst). even with exceptional perfomance it'll always be in 5.. only if you are in good terms with manager, it'll be 2.
    - not much of technical stuff worked on. it's vry hard to get job in other companies with this work
    - claims to be CMMi level 5, but no facilities, perks , gifts for eployees
    - people policies are 'n' in number. but just for word sake. even anti harassment case officially filed will be masked by HR if it's against a higher management person
    - salary hikes are in single digits or no hikes
    - one has to wait for 6-8 years for one onsite opportunity ( 6 months term)
    - promotions are usually delayed as much as possible
    - 90 % of people ( 2 - 8 years experience) are looking for change. it shows how unhappy people are
    - favoritism is observed more. only manager's pets get good hikes n promotion
    - fun at work, outings etc is very minimal
    - extra useless work like mandatory 1 kaizen per month, participate in HOS, HSE meetings, process meetings, do PDVSM etc. all these are not considered in any outside companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - management is wasting organizations money in the name of safety kaizens where in colorful boards are put up every month which is of no worth. shifting cafeterias here and there. Rather spend same amount to provide good hikes to employees.
    - keep the policies transparent n take care of harassment cases filed.
    - ILP should be transparent. for few people interviews are held and few are silently promoted
    - try to retain existing talents by giving them good opportunities to grow in career than spending so much in hiring new people every now and then
    - facilities like work from home is given only for managers and engineers are always asked to take leave. this is partiality
    - senior management, specially LSE or technology specialists are very egoistic. they won't allow others to grow. lot of politics done to suppress engineers
    - the PER ( people engagement relationship) surveys you take is always giving negative feedvback. still no actions taken

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

    Pros

    Work on high level projects.
    Well known brand - trusted in some industries.

    Cons

    6 monthly HPD reviews which are used as ways of performance managing people out of company.
    Poor culture of bullying from upper management.
    pay freezes for last 24 months.
    staff made redundant in last 6 months - more expected.
    very childish workplace, reminds me of school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider ways that encourage staff to interact as adults - not children.
    Branch breakfasts are boring and not engaging.

    Former Employee - Operations Manager  in  Lincolnshire, IL
    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Lincolnshire, IL

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong technical talent but way under utilized. Too many dinosaurs with outdated ideas that impede growth and creative thinking.
    Very few people up to Sr Levels work more than 40 hours-a big plus for work life balance

    Cons

    The president of Analytics runs this unit like its his own private company and club-membership is very difficult to get into, but once you get a glimpse, you want run when you see the nonsense that goes on between HR/Finance/Marketing. Group prayers (this is a public company) is a very common practice and inappropriate. If you aren't an "FOC", you will never go anywhere. Bad behavior on behalf of middle management is ignored and tolerated. The weirdest, most ethically challenged and most stressful company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the dinosaurs and open your eyes to what is going on. Many people have a lot to contribute, but those ideas are pushed away or completely ignored

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good holiday, vacation days and personal day times. Great learning department allows you to take advantage of free continuing education opportunities.

    Cons

    You're just a number. Most people there are just trying to climb the corporate ladder and change positions often. Hiring freeze prevents new employee hiring even when it is desperately needed. They are great at buying a small company and literally tearing it apart, first with overwhelming red tape and procedures then literally shutting it down and keeping the technology.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is decent, high amount of autonomy in my position, flexible work hours

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, in-fighting among leadership, executive management not focused on the real issues of the company, poor delivery, dissatisfied customers, excessive turn around times, culture is very antiquated and diversity is not encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the real issues that affect the company's ability to be successful. Stop sweating the small stuff that doesn't make the company profitable. Work on building up the team instead of tearing them down. Stop tolerating poor behaviors which eventually impact results.
