    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    Good working environment, but very dependent on area manager. Some are good, others not so much.

    Cons

    Poor compensation, most positions start salary is around 20% of county mean income. Pay does not increase as skills and responsibility increase, you will never "top out". Single digit percentage raise with promotions and 2-3% raises every other year, which doesn't even keep up with inflation. No more pension and only .375%:1.0% 401K match for first SIX years.
    Little regard for quality of product, emphasis is put on HOS, cost savings and outsourcing jobs overseas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Redirect some of your focus from HOS and realize that quality comes with a price. Both people and products.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable company. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Frustrating, non-value added work. Honeywell seems to create its own problems. Communications are not very good. Vendors do not seem to be very developed or supportive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from "check the box" management style to actually trying to define problems and fix them.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People are friendly.
    The work is fun.

    Cons

    There are better salaries elsewhere, and promotions only come if you brown nose your bosses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on quality of work, not who goes golfing with the boss.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large, safe, stable, innovative and have offices in most large cities. Global reach

    Cons

    Lack of respect for the individual. Very little upside. Worst HR in North America.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honeywell has excellent systems in place but not followed. Of course everyone does the mandatory training but for get the basic principle of respect for the individual. I have never worked in a company where there has been zero loyalty to the employer. Benefits are poor. All the emphasis seems to be on cash flow and stock price. Short sighted, ego-driven executive managers.

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

    Pros

    Good training programs, intelligent team members.

    Cons

    Poor health insurance, lack of stable leadership. Extremely bureaucratic so it takes forever to get projects through. Way too much "corporate mentality." Employees are not treated as valued and compensation is lower than average compared to other industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to employees and make them feel like their opinion has weight. Too many bad ideas get promoted when employees who have been in the business a long time tell management the ideas are a mistake!

    Pros

    Good company, clear roles / responsibilities. Excellent working conditions, good benefit packages. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up, must change jobs to improve salary / benefits. Will pay for advanced training and then not use you in improved area. Middle management very guarded about job explanations, future developments. Company does not share much about current conditions, and will keep info related to job under wraps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep people based on performance, not seniority. Create more job mobility, less silos.
