    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with people all over the world. Remote working is ok and even encouraged

    Cons

    Focus on quarterly profits at the expense of customer relationships and long term growth. Medical benefits are poor. Not a lot of respect for domain expertise gathered over many years by management which constantly changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians to do the work.

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Great pay for what you do but could get paid more.

    Cons

    Overworked and no vision. Unorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so busy everyday and engage employees more.

    Decent but way too much red tape to get work done.

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

    Pros

    Lot's of opportunity to do things that most companies can't offer. Like travel and being able to experiment with different designs/processes before coming to a conclusion.

    Cons

    They don't hire people. Important people keep quitting and no one ever gets replaced. We've been on a supposed "hiring freeze" for approximately 2 1/2 years. It "thawed" once for 2 months but that's it. More work keeps getting dumped on those at the bottom and the expectations keep getting higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people not a means to an end.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely
    Good holiday time off, vacation, PTO and STD benefits
    Some managers encourage individual growth

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging. Health care is way too expensive and what you get is not worth it. Many inconsistencies between organizations and leaders. Raises are laughable if they even happen. There is no cost of living raises any more. Leadership is more interested in the bottom line rather than the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to focusing on your employees. Happier workers make for productive workers.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    The work and responsibility entrusted was awesome. Learnt a lot from both the work and the people working with. Fun, positive looking team

    Cons

    Disappointed that they did not come through for me when I needed a relocation. Each one looks out for themselves and inspite of putting in multiple years, you are left high and dry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look out for your employees, especially the ones who want to make a career with Honeywell.

    Pros

    A place where everyone's ideas are heard. A strong focus on continuous improvement at all levels of the organization. A place where you really own your own career.

    Cons

    Very long hiring process compared to similar companies. Potential for high subcontract workforce to offset long and slow hiring process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire fast and hire smart. Great people are being lost to competitors that bring talent in to their organizations with velocity.
