    I worked at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    good back office support and excellent engineering support. Honeywell has also created a tremendous operating procedure. There is a procedure for nearly every operation.

    Cons

    Unfortunately Honeywell is a very conservative company and it shows in its leadership. While there is significant discussion on diversity, my experience was the organization had little to no diversity. If you were not a white, heterosexual, male with conservative beliefs, you did not fit into the organizational culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spin off or shut down Building Solutions.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I had a great manager who cared about my professional development and measured my success based on clear goals. I was able to learn a lot about the company and interact with many different functions.

    Cons

    A lot of employees are chronically unhappy and crabby! If you don't have a good manager it could be unbearable. It can be hard to find the right people to work with in such a large, matrixed organization.

    Things have changed over the last 10 years but it is still a good place to work

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Many terrific people who work very hard at their jobs.
    A good place to be challenged on several levels.
    You are given the opportunity to grow as your experience level grows.

    Cons

    Some business groups within the org. are too concerned about having a body that lives local to HQ and has an MBA versus actually hiring the right person for the position. Now those groups are at a point where product management and engineering have no experience/knowledge of our business and build products they want versus what the market requires.
    Too many processes, example - to roll out NPI generally takes 2 years (and that is using the Agile engineering process).
    Benefits continue to slip. Over the past 10 years we have gone from a company that took care of its employees to a culture of cut costs and increase margins so we can boost the stock price so our CEO and Co-Chairmen can make 200x the average employee salary. There is a balance point that needs to achieved.

    Not The Same As AlliedSIgnal

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    When it was AlliedSignal, training was second to none. They paid their employees for new ideas, work performed and provided a very productive work environment. AlliedSignal actually encouraged Six Sigma.

    Cons

    The culture changed after it became Honeywell

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