    Pros

    Flexible working environment and interesting work. Co-workers are very knowledgeable for the most part. The company culture promotes staying up to speed with latest industry developments.

    Cons

    Benefits have eroded every year since I have been there. It seems like this is happening across the US, but Honeywell seems to be on the forefront. For example, Pension became 401k, 100% matching became 75% matching, HSA additions have gone down and wouldn't be surprised if they did away with it altogether next year. Don't get me started on the health insurance. Salary raises are on the low side.

    Pros

    The partner discounts that Honeywell offers are phenomenal. Also, there's plenty of business sectors that offer lateral as well as upward growth.

    Cons

    This particular office was the biggest challenge. The culture at the Atlanta HBS office was TERRIBLE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff is a reflection of management's best and worst qualities. Management should not perpetuate or encourage negative culture in the sense of co-worker relations.

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, Great people to work with, Flexible hours. Good opportunity to increase responsibility. Great support staff.

    Cons

    Contractors can only stay for a max of 24 months prior to being let go due to current rules. Parking is problematic as well as contractors and employees alike must park where ever they can, sometimes 1/4 mile away from the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the parking concern. Folks are forced to park in different places just about every day.

    Pros

    It can be difficult to get your foot in the door at Honeywell but it is worth the persistence. So many people here have longevity of 20, 30, 40 years which is, virtually, unheard of these days. One of the first things I noticed on my first day was that most people were smiling and some were whistling as they walked down the hall. This is a fantastic, stable company with smart, great people. Honeywell tries to always promote from within and encourages learning, growing, and moving, laterally or upward, to improve your knowledge and gain new strengths. The benefits are decent, although not what they once were. Leadership is superior and they are always pushing themselves and all employees to continually improve. Great leadership + great employees = a great company.

    Cons

    Hours can sometimes be long, but hard work is recognized.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with quite a few co-workers, but management has a total different perspective about how to really run a business. They conspire to cover up how they are ripping the company and corprate off BIG TIME !

    Cons

    Just trying to do your job, and not everybody elses ! They pray on certain employees that are very good at what they do, while the slaggers get away with doing nothing, and working all of the over time, and get all of the prais !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start relying on the productive employees,and getting the slaggers to do their jobs ! Stop firing the good ones, and get rid of the bad ones !

    I worked at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    The benefits they provided me where great, although the medical could have been cheaper. But overall the experience was a good one.

    Cons

    The office politics nonsense is enough to make anyone quit if it weren't for the pay. Again the medical benefits could've been a lot cheaper if they went with another insurance company, but seeing as they own the one we had, they could have made it cheaper.
