    Pros

    There are opportunities if you connect with the right people and you actively seek out chances to do more. Group leader jobs now go through an interview process instead of just giving to the most senior employee, so employees who just want more money aren't in charge.

    Cons

    Company is really top-heavy; lots of VPs reporting to other VPs, reporting to directors, who report to executives, yet the employees who actually make the products and support the products work an insane number of hours each week because they are understaffed. Hit your numbers, hit your numbers, yet the office people waltz in whenever they want, then walk to mcdonalds every morning, then leave any time they want. HR is a joke, entire HR team has turned over twice in the last 5 years and they refuse to help the employees with anything, that is, if they are even around, they are almost never at the office. I don't want to call some phone number for help with benefits, you help me! That is HR's job! No flu shots, no holiday dinner, no five dollar honeywell calendar, none of it. You can't just take, take, take. At some point, you have to give us something, or something will give on our end!

    Advice to Management

    Redistribute resources to where they are needed. Less design engineers, more production engineers. You talk about lean, actually follow it and eliminate about half of the "directors" and "vice presidents". Remember that a lot of your employees are also stockholders, you wouldn't treat your stockholders like crap so why do you treat employees like crap?

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay may be slightly above average. Some opportunities for movement within company.

    Cons

    This company has the most unrealistic expectations that I have ever witnessed in my career. It became worse everyday. They cut about 15% of staff in 2009 and continued to not replace other retiring workers. They outsourced labor to Puerto Rico, India, and Mexicali but the outsourcing was handled so poorly that workers at the site had to perform the tasks themselves, which added more burden. The workload became unbearable for those left to pick up the pieces. There is also a culture of verbal abusiveness, yelling etc. The louder you can yell at your staff, the more likely you are to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and look at the talent you continue to lose because of your unrealistic demands and abusiveness.
