    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

    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 for more than 10 years

    Pros

    HON is a extremely large company, and that can provide a lot of opportunities, and benefits for those that work there and for those that can navigate the culture.

    Cons

    Given that it is such a large company, it's easy to get lost in the machinery. Sometimes hard to find out who is responsible for performing a certain task (i.e. many departments are not co-located and have peers located across the globe so meetings often occur on-line over the web and your laptop. Those who need a close personal relationship w/ peers, may find it difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the manufacturing and jobs back to the US.

    Pros

    Great work experience. Good working conditions. Interesting assignments. Great opportunities for women. Good place to work for the younger employee.

    Cons

    Youth biased. Does not value the older employee. Compensation gets stagnant unless you go into management , Benefits have consistently gone down over the years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good opportunities for younger woman and people who are good talkers and self promoters. Shrinking violets will get trampled.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Honeywell provides a great training ground to pick up specialized and broad skills. Many growth opportunities as a new graduate student. When it is time to move on, there are many employers who will be very glad to give you the promotions and monies to hire you.

    Cons

    Honeywell has a lot of high performers. The lower 2/3 of the positions turn over, especially as they approach that upper 1/3. The funnel gets very small as you go up and chances to be promoted also reduce dramatically. Honeywell is not the best paying company and after 5 to 10 years, the retirement plan does not grow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business model is the business model.

    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.
