    Pros

    Compensated very well. Semi-annual bonuses. Can grow your beard. Anywhere else not work in the military is always a plus.

    Cons

    Former military members so military hierarchy is still in place. You have to remind yourself and your supervisor that you are a civilian and not in the military anymore. It can be a hit or miss on your direct leadership; I had both. The amount of money you earned made up for the BS you had to go through.

    Pros

    Good comradeship and highly technology business that provides employees with a sense of accomplishment. Reasonably OK and benefits but most employees reason for working there is their sense of accomplishment on high technology programs

    Cons

    Old industrial company that has become exceptionally risk averse. Recently the company morale has become sluggish due to frequent unpaid work interruptions and the associated expectation for future losses in personal income predictability

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate persons and team achievements fast and right

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

    Pros

    Honeywell covers a large variety of industries which leads to an interesting mix of offerings. The (non executive) employees are hard-working and intelligent. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrendous for such a large company that should have significant leverage. Benefits are cut year after year. Recently remote work was banned from the CEO level. Honeywell is trying to follow an Apple or Yahoo culture but seems to lack the understanding that global teams cannot meet locally the way local companies in San Fransisco are able to. This really shows a lack of fully understanding the problem before making knee-jerk sweeping changes that significantly affect so many employees. The worst part is that just a few months ago remote work and hiring remote talent was encouraged to increase the talent pool. What happens to those employees now? Clearly higher level leadership doesn't care. Lower level managers are left to pick up the pieces

    Advice to Management

    This is specifically aimed at higher level leadership. Stop trying to follow trends that you don't fully understand. Treat your employees with respect and trust. Forcing employees in to the office to try to force increased work output will have the opposite effect. You will get slammed with employee complaints and work productivity will drop. If you can't trust your employees then hire employees you can trust to manage their own work time. Stop cutting benefits.

    How can you possibly think that cutting benefits, taking away remote work, killing work/life balance and just generally treating your employees without any level of respect will motivate them to go above and beyond? How can you possibly think that will lead to recruiting the best talent? This is a prime example of higher level leadership being completely out of touch with reality and making horrible decisions.

    Pros

    Good people for the most part, decent money

    Cons

    High manager turnover, lack of personal accountability by upper management, no work life balance you are expected to give up everything for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what the employees are telling you. I am management and whats funny is they are right but upper management wont listen

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people on the shop floor. Nice small town.

    Cons

    No vision. Lack of operation direction. Very secular in relation to skill set which drives inefficiencies in the business. If you are ambitious, opportunities at the site are limited but plentiful if you relocate. Losing critical lighting business from Boeing to competition because Honeywell did not bid on critical and high-volume, high profit margin LED lighting.

    Advice to Management

    The Urbana site needs a solid and viable 5+ year plan to sustain and grow the LOBs. More staff members need cross trained for continuity of the business.
