    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, very professional. they care about their work and each other. Every day is different, and I like that. A lot of international travel logistics, global meeting set-ups, a little bit of accounting. Something new every day.

    Cons

    Job can be difficult - Always behind the eight ball. Allied Signal bought the company and has been killing it. People leaving in droves

    I worked at Honeywell as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    This company is a fantastic place to do an internship. I got hands-on experience which my prospective employers are pleased with. My father has been working here for 27 years as an electrical engineer and has nothing but great things to say about the company; they have treated him very well.

    Cons

    The health insurance plan could be better and there is no pension (although this seems to be the trend at most employers nowadays).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company was great to work for, the people were very kind, responsive, outgoing and great to work for. The supervisors were very good to work for because when I had questions I could call them and have them answered. The work schedule was great because I got to choose the time for the first appointment. The training process was great and greatly improved my understanding of my responsibilities of the job.

    Cons

    There was a lot of paperwork that had to be done on a daily basis, it was very time consuming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go paperless, using Ipads.

    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 a 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.
