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

Pros

Fairly stable job security since 2005, at least in Aerospace engineering. $7,500 toward education assistance annually.

Cons

Honeywell policy shifts over the past ten years have continually eliminated the valuable benefits from working full time at a corporation. Medical coverage cost me $14,500 last year. 401K matching was reduced to 50%. Tea/coffee was eliminated because "it cost the company $60K per year". Can no longer use the mail room to mail personal packages domestically. Ridiculous scrutiny of purchases--I had to purchase my own $45 head set for teleconferences.

Advice to Management

When assessing benefits/practices/methods/processes at all sites in order to standardize "one Honeywell", do not choose the lowest common denominator and make it the norm. Show employees you care about them by actually putting there interests first, not just giving lip service. The value of the corporation is not measured on Wall Street, much of it is intangible and cannot be measured by your cost cutting metrics.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, hard workers, salary is better than average, benefits are standard - meaning good not great.

    Cons

    Corporate makes decisions without regard to individual facilities, they state the pay is based off of performance - it isn't. Lastly, there are far too many management layers, get rid of some the VP's and hire more direct labor.

    Advice to Management

    Don't dictate, look at each facilities needs and make best possible decisions.
