    Pros

    Honeywell Aerospace is a fascinating place to work with elaborate systems to facilitate its' global position. Its' products are highly valued and brought to the marketplace with a keen understanding of the political and economic climates in which they operate. Their strategies for global growth seem well balanced between conservative application of capital and leading edge innovation.

    Cons

    A highly compartmentalized culture which struggles to maintain the momentum and responsibilities necessary to achive the growth results expected from local sites (South Bend). Local sites are often starved of resources and capital as the profits are allocated to the global expansion of Honeywell International. Too much 'change for change's sake' without measureable results other than unrealized productivity and waste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify, simplify, simplify.

    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

    Opportunity to work with people all over the world. Remote working is ok and even encouraged

    Cons

    Focus on quarterly profits at the expense of customer relationships and long term growth. Medical benefits are poor. Not a lot of respect for domain expertise gathered over many years by management which constantly changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians to do the work.

    Pros

    The work and responsibility entrusted was awesome. Learnt a lot from both the work and the people working with. Fun, positive looking team

    Cons

    Disappointed that they did not come through for me when I needed a relocation. Each one looks out for themselves and inspite of putting in multiple years, you are left high and dry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for your employees, especially the ones who want to make a career with Honeywell.

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

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely
    Good holiday time off, vacation, PTO and STD benefits
    Some managers encourage individual growth

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging. Health care is way too expensive and what you get is not worth it. Many inconsistencies between organizations and leaders. Raises are laughable if they even happen. There is no cost of living raises any more. Leadership is more interested in the bottom line rather than the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to focusing on your employees. Happier workers make for productive workers.

    I have been working at Honeywell as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity to do things that most companies can't offer. Like travel and being able to experiment with different designs/processes before coming to a conclusion.

    Cons

    They don't hire people. Important people keep quitting and no one ever gets replaced. We've been on a supposed "hiring freeze" for approximately 2 1/2 years. It "thawed" once for 2 months but that's it. More work keeps getting dumped on those at the bottom and the expectations keep getting higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people not a means to an end.
