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

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers who would explain things to me, although my boss seemed to get frustrated whenever I didn't know something that he thought I should know.

    Cons

    Almost everyone there is at least in their 40's. As a college student I felt a little out of place. The environment is dead. The campus is dead. At times it made me depressed how dull it was there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more younger people. Get better food. The cafeteria is horrible and better food would have made me much happier.

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

    Pros

    Company makes money so it can provide a steady work enviroment, with low lay off rate, no over time. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    The management focuses on profit, not people. It makes good money but always tries to cut back spending on employees. Benifit is very limited. Low level employees don't have incentive bonus, nor discounted stock purchase plan, and pay more and mor eon health insurance every year. No raise for a few yeas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they care about advices.

    Pros

    Great pay for the area in which I live, great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Ended a contract ( 1 Year) while 10,000 miles away living on a ship in the middle of no where only to apply for the same job on shore to be told I did not have the training to be employed again. This is and still is a shock to me for I even received accolades in the form of a Letter of Achievement from their customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the shady hiring practices

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of tools and training for management and leadership if you actively manage your career. High work-life flexibility that leverages technology to allow telecommuting.

    Cons

    Self-insurance of benefits package drives a sub-par health plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please realize that the engineering field is hot and that you are competing with a lot of really good companies for talent. Also, pay attention to actual cost comparisons when you look at talent in Developed versus Emerging regions. Sometimes the effort to offshore defeats the purpose of cost reduction.

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting, cutting-edge technology integration. Benefits to Direct employees were most generous.

    Cons

    I worked for this company as both a Direct and Contract employee. In both cases, I was laid off in a mass downsizing. There was no effort on their part to find an adequate reassignment, although I was an established, recogized producer. As a contractor, I was told I could only continue on in my position if I accepted a 15% pay cut. I accepted the cut but was still laid off without warning 4 months later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with outside resource hiring agencies to assure that Contractor benefits match Direct employee benefits.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay with a very competitive bonus plan.. It is project based work so you need to be willing to put in the extra hours to meet deadlines, but with that said you'll have more intense work some months as well as slower months.. it balances out. Travel 30-40% of the time, will always fly you back for the weekend with options for a company car if driving more frequently if you live near by. You can work from home or office, everything is remote.

    Cons

    Since everything is remote, your coworkers are just voices over the phone.. Took me over a year to meet my mentors in person which makes building relationships harder. Also for those that like the office atmosphere this isn't for you.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities are available globally and across the businesses.

    Cons

    Like all companies, this has changed. But employee (the "people" part our leadership boast about) care is diminishing. Benefits continuously being eroded, micromanagement of the business, cannot back fill and hire to meet understaffed needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the cons - really look at your people and treat them as the assets we are supposed to be. We are considered more as liabilities and anything to reduce to liability is done.
