    Pros

    HTSI is a small part of the huge Honeywell International company. Honeywell International is a well-run company with good stock and good benefits and all the bells and whistles. HTSI used to be called Bendix Field Engineering which was absorbed by Allied-Signal who later bought Honeywell (and took the Honeywell name for themselves). Really good people and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    HTSI seems to have lost a lot of its spirit as the distance from Bendix days has widened. It used to be a company that had a purpose -- supporting NASA ground tracking stations, but that business mostly died and HTSI didn't seem to have the talent to move from engineering services into real engineering; the place was full of managers and "procedure experts". Then another company won/stole the NASA ground station contract and knocked the wind out. I don't think of it as an engineering (software or hardware) firm; it is just very good at technology management -- at least the part of HTSI that I knew. They have government top secret work and, God knows, maybe the engineering is good there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Times have changed and ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Purge the company of the old and if you have to succeed by moving away from engineering and into management, then do it! I think you will do very well because Honeywell International has great business practices to base everything on.

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is the only pro about the company.

    Cons

    The security division is in bad shape in terms of resources, moral, and leadership. You may have big ego maniacs elsewhere but it will be hard to top the ones that hold leadership positions in Honeywell security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bullying your employees. It's a shame how leadership treats staff. Start treating people how they should be treated and stop allowing egos to get in the way of progress.

    Great overall experience.

    I worked at Honeywell as an intern

    Pros

    As an intern, I was greatly involved in several different projects and was given actual responsibilities instead of just fetching coffee.

    Cons

    I worked in a foreign country where I did not speak the local language. My coworkers mostly spoke english, however not speaking the language made some meetings difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regardless of the con, keep hiring foreign interns. This was an incredible experience.

    Honeywell Analytics, Lincolnshire IL ....Ethically Challenged

    Former Employee - Operations Manager  in  Lincolnshire, IL
    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Lincolnshire, IL

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

    Pros

    Strong technical talent but way under utilized. Too many dinosaurs with outdated ideas that impede growth and creative thinking.
    Very few people up to Sr Levels work more than 40 hours-a big plus for work life balance

    Cons

    The president of Analytics runs this unit like its his own private company and club-membership is very difficult to get into, but once you get a glimpse, you want run when you see the nonsense that goes on between HR/Finance/Marketing. Group prayers (this is a public company) is a very common practice and inappropriate. If you aren't an "FOC", you will never go anywhere. Bad behavior on behalf of middle management is ignored and tolerated. The weirdest, most ethically challenged and most stressful company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the dinosaurs and open your eyes to what is going on. Many people have a lot to contribute, but those ideas are pushed away or completely ignored

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Large, stable company with lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Large corporation with competing metrics, at times the logical/right thing to do it thrown out the window because some Exec wants a bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of good talent working hard for you, they might not be your favorite friends so lift your head up and recognize the hardworking folks that make you look good
