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

    Pros

    high salary and compensation packages are average but you will never see your full bonus, so negotiate a bonus that is greater than you expect to recieve so you get what you are worth. Senior leaders threaten your bonus (hold back 10% to make you do things to get them a higher bonus for them selves). Honeywell promotes anyone and often.

    Cons

    Vacation is use or loose so you have to use all your vacation in the same year or lose it. If you are a hard worker you stand a good chance of losong vaction or working through your vacation. The company leaders will call you and make you work on vacation. Bonus structure is skewed so company can keep most of it and stil claim you are on a high bonus structure. Most of newly bought companies emplyees leave within the firs year due to salary or bonuses, Honeywell forgets why they bought the company in the first place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people based on long term goals not for the short term. Too many Directors and VP's hired that have no real industry experience or for any management capabilities, only for being yes men and women. Pay your employees their bonuses based on hitting their goals, not on some arbitrary metrics hidden from them or based on someone elses goals. Teh Honeywell connect website is notheing more than a Dave Cote Fan page. Focus on Employees and product, not on how well Cote does or how many times he shows up on jim framers mad money show because he and Cote are neighbors.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people are nice & excellent at their jobs, and they are willing to mentor you.

    Cons

    I would have to say that my #1 con was that I was not mentored or trained at all by my manager. I did get extensive training by my main mentor though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be a very good idea to have the managers get more training on how to integrate a new employee in the way that the company works (all policies upfront).

    Very nice people to work with

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Good pay and pretty flexible hours

    Cons

    Benefits seem to be getting worse every year. Also, a lot of the workforce is very close to retirement so there isn't much motivation and a lot of people are lazy and just 'riding out' the last few years before they retire

    Pros

    Very large company with a lot of world wide influence. Salaries are generally good.

    Cons

    In general people are not treated very well. Benefits, specifically insurance, for a company this size are not good. Very large turnover rate a the facility I worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your people, you say they are your most valuable asset yet you treat them as second class citizens. Your turnover rate should give a clue that you have a problem

    Pros

    Workers are friendly and you could feel proud of what you do if you were allowed to.

    Cons

    Management has their head in the sand. They ask for suggestions on such things as Quality, but never use the suggestions. They hire good talent on contract & then let them go in 2 years or less thus letting talent & experience walk out the door, When your constantly revolving people you are in a constant training flux, thus the quality goes down. Stupid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to the suggestions!

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pros depend on your manager. If you area Manager or above, you can do whatever you want and get away with it.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be rewarded for a job well done. If you work outside of a Mother Honeywell location, they don't pay much attention to your contributions. Even if you have a legitimate issue with someone in your chain of command, HR doesn't care. HR protects management, not employees. Leadership is missing. People are promoted based on who they know. Honeywell values cutting costs so they can pay dividends to major shareholders. Employee responses to internal feedback have dropped 3 years in a row--but nothing has been done to counteract this trend. Expect to work within 3 global time zones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organic growth doesn't come from being a slow follower of technology; spend more money on R&D.

    Pros

    Large company with opportunity. Room to move around but not mecessarily upward. Decent benefits but trimming away at them every year.

    Cons

    They do not retain talent well. Management is getting caught up in making Honeywell comparative to other similar companies rather than exceeding them in employee benefits and compensation. 13 year employee with yearly raises no more than 2% average. Get your money coming into the company and dont make Honeywell your carrier. I have been making less net money every year for the past 5 years with pay freezes and increased cost in health benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees more than with cupcakes and cheap gadgets. Cost of living is skyrocketing and Honeywell doesn't care about that.
