    There used to be so many benefits but they are all gone now. No reason to stay.

    Terrible benefits, terrible leadership, company doesn't care about employees. Things have changed so much over the last few years and I no longer believe in this company.

    Treat employees better and not like numbers

    I worked at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    HR professionals are very highly compensated at Honeywell. Honeywell has diversified businesses which positions the company well when there is a downturn in any of their lines of business. The CEO is a very strong leader and has done a great job to turn Honeywell around which substantially has raised the stock price.

    Cons

    Benefits coverage is very expensive. The plan covers preventive services only prior to meeting the very high deductible. Also, typically, when someone gets a promotion, it means they keep their current responsibilities and take on another role. Therefore, the workload becomes impossible and means the employee needs to work/be available almost 24/7. They burn out many of their employees with this philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    Cover more benefit costs & realize that most employees are on overload. The company is doing well off the sweat of the backs of their employees.

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

    Pros

    Good learning & development opportunities. Great Go-To-Market strategy. Really like the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Very little - sometimes the performance management process became the objective in itself. They sit on huge amounts of valuable people data but can't translate it into smart people actions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget people are people, and remember most of your business is outside the US, so be culturally sensitive.

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

    Pros

    -Growing, successful businesses in different markets/regions
    -Many opportunities to work globally
    -HR is tied into the business as opposed to other companies

    Cons

    -Focus on shareholders is strong and comes at the price of salary increases, other perks
    -Benefits are not as great as competitors
    -Work/life balance is tough in HR - many roles require hours well beyond a 40 hour work week

    Advice to Management

    Continue to run the business successfully, but don't forget that the people who make up the business are the most important asset.

    Pros

    Within the HR function, Honeywell is a great brand and a company that you can be proud to work for. You are guaranteed to have smart colleagues around you within a stable company that is truly global.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are not always given to the best qualified. Pathways program participants are given priority, even if they are underqualified or incapable. There is a fraternity of BYU grads within the HR leadership structure so if you want to become a senior leader, get a BYU degree first.

    Advice to Management

    For those on the outside looking in at the opportunities afforded to Pathways program participants, it is demoralizing. Don't automatically rule out the non-Pathways employees as they may be more capable.
