    Backstabbing and too political in upper management

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsNone. Don't. Shouldn't. They look for scape goats to hide their inadequacy.

    ConsYou are a scape goat to senior management. They make stupid decisions and then when you tell them how to fix it they take YOUR SOLUTIONS AND ACT LIKE THEY THOUGHT IT UP. So sick of senior leadership not seeing their peers as who they are. This includes top leaders in this company. Grow up guys. See that you are covering the wrong backs!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up and realize that your paychecks aren't the most important thing in life. Be humble knowing you screwed up with a decision and take YOUR accountability and not blame it on someone else. HR is a joke too. Take a close look CEO s and SR. VPs and look at each other. You don't know what's happening. Its almost funny.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent work environment

    Assembler (Former Employee)
    Olathe, KS

    Proscoworkers aside the organization and the systematic flow of all production was impressive.

    ConsThe majority of their work force is contracted which tends to create some tension among employees and contract personnel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLead! Do not hide in the shadows and pretend that it will all just disappear

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

    Honeywell: strong and mature industrial organization

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsVery mature organization
    Talent and high potential identification
    Growth and lateral move possible but mostly from/for management

    ConsOrganization almost exclusively led by growth, operating income and cash generation. Very high level of pressure in some divisions expecting employees to continuously do more with less.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Low morale, big corporate machine.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood training programs, intelligent team members.

    ConsPoor health insurance, lack of stable leadership. Extremely bureaucratic so it takes forever to get projects through. Way too much "corporate mentality." Employees are not treated as valued and compensation is lower than average compared to other industries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to employees and make them feel like their opinion has weight. Too many bad ideas get promoted when employees who have been in the business a long time tell management the ideas are a mistake!

    Get the experience and move on

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Torrance, CA

    ProsA lot of dedicated and hardworking people around who are over-qualified and work passionately. Good training facilities that offer excellent learning and certification opportunities to take advantage of.

    ConsLots of them, the compensation is well below what most other companies in the area would offer. There are a lot of bad managers and only a hand full of good managers, so make sure if you do your homework. Lastly, its a deadend as there is no scope of growth, so unless you like living in LA this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDave Cote is a great CEO, great to be a shareholder. Not so great as an employee

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great overall experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAs an intern, I was greatly involved in several different projects and was given actual responsibilities instead of just fetching coffee.

    ConsI worked in a foreign country where I did not speak the local language. My coworkers mostly spoke english, however not speaking the language made some meetings difficult.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRegardless of the con, keep hiring foreign interns. This was an incredible experience.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
