    I have been working at Intermec Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The sales team I work with has to be the best around. If it wasn't for their constant persistence I don't know where this company would have been. Hopefully with Honeywell coming on board the necessary changes will be implemented to bring this company up to date and operating at industry expected levels.

    Cons

    I have never worked for a company where a customer service rep has more authorization on price than a sales manager. The plant runs the show and that culture needs to change to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Step up and get things done. You no longer need to walk on egg shells when dealing with Internal issues.

    Pros

    Management invested in employees, environment was very collaborative, departments were interested in doing the right thing correctly versus pushing out bad projects

    Cons

    Intermec was bought out by Honeywell, most of the managers are now gone, Honeywell does not invest properly in headcount, little interest in following best practice, focused on cutting corners/headcount instead of growing business, high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, your departments, and your headcount. Try growing your business instead of starving your departments. You currently come off as a bunch of alpha execs more interested in investing in your early retirement and new yacht than in creating a profitable and long lasting company.

    I have been working at Intermec Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Leadership in the 90's was excellent. Belief in the people and support of the people was a major reason for the outstanding culture.

    Cons

    Leadership has changed hands so many times there is no continuity left to the culture.

    I worked at Intermec Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly professional staff, (still) good intellectual assets - people from bottom to the top were committed to product quality and customer satisfaction; eager to make the best products possible.

    Cons

    Sluggish response to new market opportunities, wasted intellectual potential.

    Advice to Management

    More proactive, less formal valuation of human assets would make this company more successful.

    Pros

    Intermec was a small company feel. Benefits were competitive relative to similiar companies in the area. The people are really nice and savvy, this is certainly a pro.

    Cons

    Purchased and sold too many times while I was there, creating different strategic directions. Changed managers too many times as well.

    Advice to Management

    None
