    Pros

    Very large company with a lot of world wide influence. Salaries are generally good.

    Cons

    In general people are not treated very well. Benefits, specifically insurance, for a company this size are not good. Very large turnover rate a the facility I worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your people, you say they are your most valuable asset yet you treat them as second class citizens. Your turnover rate should give a clue that you have a problem

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

    Pros

    Decent starting pay, very good people at a level where stuff actually gets done, great technology pipeline, excellent reputation, very profitable, flex hours and ability to work from home when needed, good place to develop experience, strong stock price

    Cons

    Worst medical benefits ever !!!! Most employees end up on spouse plans. Very intrusive policies. Some of the worst managers I have seen in my 25 yr career. They manage up and manage their careers only. Not a very personable place to work and very political. No real pension. Cutting benefits left and right. Work life balance can be a challenge. Lots of butt kissing and favoritism with no accountability. Very few promotions unless you jump from job to job. Arrogant business practices make customer interactions very challenging. Lots of red tape and programs that handcuff ability to deliver results. A culture that doesn't empower employees and policies that restrict creativity. Raises are miniscule and don't keep up with inflation so net pay decreases over time unless you want to move from job to job. Consensus decision process that dilutes results. If you are outspoken, watch out, it will bite you. Very poor communication. Some of the most arrogant self serving leadership anywhere. If you find a role you truly love, accept that you will stagnate in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower people and create an atmosphere that facilitates decision making and calculated risk. Trust the talent of your people and leverage that talent for an overall organization success. Select managers and directors who have people skills, are good listeners and not so wrapped up in self serving personal goals. You have a problem for long term talent retention. Walk your talk, you have little credibility at this point. Looking to move on

    Pros

    Good pay and challenging work...the brands are exceptional and strategic acquisitions always seem to be winners and enhance the bottom line.

    Cons

    Benefits are becoming a bad joke and there is no such thing as work life balance. Upper management in IT has become the mutual admiration society (they all love each other but not the actual workers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They completely fear making a decision...time to put the big boy pants on (ladies too) and make a decision and live with the results good or bad.

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

    Pros

    It is a safe clean place to work. The people have been through so much with Kyote's strange HOS ideas we all have that in common.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as a promotion at Honeywell, there are simply job postings that you must apply for. With this policy many many experienced employees must leave their department in order to get better paying positions thus causing a drain on talent and causing a strain on the departments. Because your whole raise for that year is only 0-3% your salary does not go up very fast. There are no cost of living raises, Honeywell has figured out how to make the cost of living stand still for the last 25 years. There are no Christmas bonuses and there are no suggestion awards, Honeywell calls them Kaizens and forces employees to give them 12 of your improvement ideas every year. employee reviews are a joke. It always comes down to whether or not your manager likes you and like I said it will only 0-3% while your heath care will go up about 15% every year consistently. Employees are asked to more more tasks every year, all technicians and assemblers now must sweep and mop the floor even though we have a house keeping. They contracted it out and our plant must pay them more to do their jobs so to save money we must do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give Kyotes bonus to the hard working employees and put the plagiarizing, employee hating Kyote out to pasture. It will make it a better place to work.
