Current Employee - Senior Account

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

Pros

I have worked at Honeywell for 25 years and have had the opportunity to have a multitude of different types of roles within multiple businesses within Honeywell. Honeywell supports and promotes the... movement of people between job functions and business lines and does not keep people "in their silos". If you want variety, Honeywell would be a good choice.

Cons

Honeywell expectations are set very high for everyone (top to bottom), so expect to work hard and smart (and get rewarded for it).

Current Employee - Anonymous

I have been working at Optima full-time for less than a year

Pros

Very clear from day 1 that people live the company's beliefs. Being bold but with empathy, working hard to do the right thing (even when it's hard) and the notion that there is a solution to every... problem clearly drive the business and are part of the dialogue every day. Optima is driven by a good rhythm of KPIs and professional development conversations while keeping it simple so work is a focus vs. measurement. It's what you'd expect from a hard-driving, results-oriented company in the loop but up on the Northshore so if you're done with the commute to the city, this culture fits the active worker.

Cons

The Glencoe office is a thing of beauty, but we're running out of space.

Advice to Management

Keep it going, keep a focus on beliefs and KPIs, and keep sharing the goals and initiatives of the business.
