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

    Pros

    Good pay and challenging work...the brands are exceptional and strategic acquisitions always seem to be winners and enhance the bottom line.

    Cons

    Benefits are becoming a bad joke and there is no such thing as work life balance. Upper management in IT has become the mutual admiration society (they all love each other but not the actual workers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They completely fear making a decision...time to put the big boy pants on (ladies too) and make a decision and live with the results good or bad.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    I had a variety of positions over several years and had the opportunity to learn about SOME aspects of the business.

    Cons

    My experience was one of glass ceilings. No meaningful, career development input was provided to develop my skill sets for certain positions. I was willing to put forth the effort, but opportunities remained out of reach. Discrimination is also part of the landscape as well. Merit increases were typically below co-workers with less experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your thinking on diversity - move beyond the traditional good ol' boy network.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    The company is strong and I never worried about layoffs.

    Cons

    Honeywell is crippled by outdated policies, complex procedures and its hierarchical organization. You're thrown in to your job with no orientation or training and your career stays stagnant because there is little to no development or guidance. You only hear feedback when it's negative - you never get any positive reinforcement so you never feel like you're actually on the right track or doing a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your talent. Develop your employees. Give people a reason to stay.

    I have been working at Honeywell (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is involved in many technologies and product so every engineer sees fruit of their efforts. It is a nice feeling to be involved with great products that help move industries forward and that accelerate the advancement and creation of knowledge.

    Cons

    The company keeps growing in many directions, but seemingly, no attention is given to compensation adjustments, competitive benefits, work environment improvements, e.g. equipment, areas, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and truly put employees first. Stop looking to make more money at the expense of compensations and treatment bordering on insulting towards good, hard working, people. Make sure they enjoy coming to work.
