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

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating work. Leading-edge technology in the Aerospace field. Dynamic environment, especially in the government and defense sector. Diverse and very talented engineering workforce.

    Cons

    Very much "old boy" network as far as advancement and promotions. Horrible management style of "rank and yank" inherited from CEO Dave Cote, a devotee and apprentice of GE's Jack Welch. Employees are ranked together with peers once a year during review cycle. Bottom 10% are marked for elimination - no exceptions. Stupid and incredibly moral destroying management style. Employees are forced to compete against each other just to keep their jobs, instead of focusing on innovation and new technology.

    Every year, benefits are cut down from the previous year. Management Incentive Plan sounds good on paper, but in practice management finds ways to restrict the payouts by tying to unreachable goals the average employee has no control over.

    Company seems to be more interested in moving jobs to cheaper off-shore locations rather than investing in their mainland U.S. employees. Stock price seems to be the focus of the company - period.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the Jack Welch-style "rank and yank". You are losing good employees. Upper management says employees are Honeywell's best asset - just lip service.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good holiday, vacation days and personal day times. Great learning department allows you to take advantage of free continuing education opportunities.

    Cons

    You're just a number. Most people there are just trying to climb the corporate ladder and change positions often. Hiring freeze prevents new employee hiring even when it is desperately needed. They are great at buying a small company and literally tearing it apart, first with overwhelming red tape and procedures then literally shutting it down and keeping the technology.
