Pros

Working for Honeywell Turbo Technologies provides the opportunity to learn a wide variety of concepts and to develop many different skills. The people I work with are generally very professional and respectful in their attitude, and focused on achieving common performance goals. There are also opportunities to move from one business to another within Honeywell.

Cons

One downside is limited advancement opportunities. Another downside is the lack of a bonus program for non-management employees. Another downside is only 2 weeks vacation for non-management employees. Another downside is the increasing trend toward moving jobs from the U.S. to developing markets such as Mexico, which seems to be more of a short-term cost saving advantage than a successful long-term strategy.

Advice to Management

To try to be more in touch with the issues affecting middle management and non-management employees, especially those issues which might impact performance metrics.

    Pros

    Tremendous opportunities for learning and growth. Good work environment in which people are respected and paid fairly. Very supportive of family obligations and desire for self improvement. Good pay and benefits package, very professional work environment.

    Cons

    Moving lots of work overseas, company not as aggressive as it could be in managing poor managers out of the system. Still lots of opportunity though.

    Advice to Management

    We are the best at what we do, lets start holding managers to the highest standards and dismissing them when they do not perform. Honeywell is second to none and we are all proud to be a part of it.

    Pros

    Aerospace software engineering is your passion. You like being pulled in 20 directions at once because that's the only way to ensure your job won't be outsourced.

    Cons

    Difficult to get up to speed on projects. All knowledge is 'tribal' based. Documentation and cooperation is poor even though they try to cram Six Sigma down your throat. Many bottlenecks in process as critcal employees take on more responsibility than they can handle in an effort to obtain job security. C-level management comes up with directives that everyone knows are doomed; so departments scramble in an awkward corporate game of 'hot potato' to see who the blame will fall on when things blow up.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on middle management. Come up with a legitimate 7 year business plan. Quit accepting contracts to support obsolete or antiquated systems that don't end up profitting the company. Quit coming up with plans designed to line your pockets and placate stockholders that do nothing for the company's bottom line or long term prospects.
