I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Resources are available, materials are available quickly. Customer base is wide and a great variety of systems available for customers. Great technicians and workers.

Cons

Resources are in other countries. This causes embarrassing delays in support for the customer and stress for the workers. Limited local hr support all goes through MSW Mn

Advice to Management

Get the benefits package right for the workers and encourage raises and advancment

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    There are no "pro" reasons to work at Honeywell, a company engaged in self-sabotage for the benefit of a communist style elite, committed to maximize their gains at the expense of the company.

    Cons

    The multi-layered management is heavily trained and structured in a iron-clad reporting network functioning with the same grassroots philosophy as the one perfected by the organized crime organizations. There is a gigantic and impenetrable Iron Curtain between management and employees. There is no one to go to and adddress concerns as an employee, since management/HR are committed to the vow of absolute blind bonding amonst themselves and against the fellow employees. The annual reviews are blatant mockeries. Managers are delivering their "evaluations" based on bogus assessments and claims, knowingly so, affording a sarcastic hideous smile while delivering your "development in place" plan for the next period. No performance review complaint has been ever resolved, indifferent of how strong was the evidence presented to support such claim. Illustrous is the case of an employee reveiving the exceptional assessment "Exceeds Honeywell Standards" from the Program Manager he worked for the entirely complete year, and yet the Manager responsible for this employee's annual performance review, downgraded him to "Below Honeywell Standards", requiring his inductance in a Performance Improvement Plan for the next year. Mind bending!

    Advice to Management

    The company can be turned around and survive, once your employees are not regarded as your enemies or inferior-class beings, and by actively pursuing upward mobility in parallel with the vitally important rotation of management that held on to their seats for more than, say, 10 years. They should change departments and locations and will have to re-prove and re-brand themselves in new environments. It has been historically proven that holding on for too long to a leadership function will only lead to complacency, autocracy, opression and regress. Look what this management style achived in the 50 years of communism in Europe and beyond.

    I have been working at Honeywell as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to learn to develop sw tests and practice reviews of sw tests and test running/runs.

    Cons

    Business is declining in the USA as the activity is easily sent to be performed in offshore Honeywell facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild a core competence in these skills in the USA. The ability to perform these tests-tasks should not be based entirely offshore if you want to remain in this business.
