    Pros

    Honeywell is a good company with good salary and benefits. A lot of opportunities for brilliant employees, a lot of diversification

    Cons

    Too much red tape, as a manager you need to ask for permission for everything. Upper management is never satisfied with results, they are always asking for stretch goals.

    This is a great company to work in. They're in alot of cool industries and you learn about and can get exposure to some different things. If you're driven and hard working you can make a great career in this company.

    Cons

    Very much a corporate company, and they're very process oriented and risk averse. There's alot of day to day minutia you have to go through to be successful at this company, so if you don't like it don't work here.

    A Job that pays you on time minus all the costs of high health care that you can't use anyway because of the high 3000 insurance cap before anything is covered
