    Pros

    Good benefits only for tuition reimbursement (100% for "B" average grades and above), pension plan, and health care benefits are not that great. The company encourage their employee to be flexible with different restructuring of organization. Their 401K plan is OK, because they are not being matched until you have reached your 1 year term in the company.

    Cons

    Mandatory re-certifications of greenbelt projects every 2 years. Perhaps make it longer than that, like at least 4 years. The promotions should be at least every two years instead of just having to promote somebody because they happened to have worked on a successful project. So, the loyalty of their employee should be recognized on how many years they have put into the company. They should match your 401K as soon as you joined the company, not when you have invested 1 year to the company before they match it. Getting promoted is very political.

    Advice to Management

    More recognitions to the key people who are doing the actual projects when they succeed.

    Pros

    There are some very good technical people here, and most are nice to work with. Good work life balance if you're not in management.

    Cons

    Honeywell's ownership. For such a large corporation, the salaries and benefits are a joke. You get only a high deductible health plan with a $3000 deductible and have to annually jump through hoops to re-enroll, or pay a huge premium penalty. Premium is already high enough. Salary is just average coming on board, and then you can expect raises to be very small or even zero, even in a good economy. Shareholder return and high CEO pay are number one with Honeywell. HR is an 800 number that reaches incompetent people in India. Local HR hides from you, until they decide it's time to fire people and then they seem to truly enjoy their job! Un-professional cruelty is the order of the day. You are treated like a naughty child. Salaried people can be DOCKED for taking too many sick days....that being more than just 5 days off of any kind for the whole year, non-cumulative.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating people with respect.

    It is just a job, no more loyalty to any organization.

    Pros

    With today's industry, you can no longer give your loyalty to any company. Take all the opportunities and incentives that they will give you at first....such as tuition assistance for education because they can take it away anytime they want.

    Cons

    They lower the matching for 401k, they took away big chunk benefits for tuition assistance, they only limit you for taking only few classes a year like maybe 1 or 2 only, they took out all the outside training for employees for their career advancements.

    Advice to Management

    None, they all follow what the corporate system tell them to do anyway. It is all about cost saving all the time. It does not matter if they cut their employees throat.

    Pros

    co-workers are great and dedicated to what they do

    Cons

    direct manager had a "club" of favorites. Seemed to target 1 person every few months and tear down any efforts. When group went to HR to ask for assistance, we were ignored. Also received no response from corporate office when asked for help with situation.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be focusing on increasing confidence of workers and teamwork - not playing "beat down" on their staff.
