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

    Pros

    New & rewarding work on tech development projects that produce systems & software products that enhance automation, usability and safety of avionics systems deployed for commercial & business aircraft.

    Cons

    Support of metrics collection on progress towards milestones and repetitive quoting of project costs steals engineering time that should be applied to quality systems development, integration & testing as well as work on patents.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits are not attractive for current employees or potential new hires or for retention compared to other companies in the sector. Too many people employed who are not the immediate supervisors whose main job is collecting status & metrics to feed Executive management (non-value added work). Innovation is stifled as long as people have to spend time on continuos/daily status rather than focusing on execution, quality and innovation (new designs, patent applications, etc)

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

    Pros

    New unlimited vacation policy (in US)... as long as you can still get your job done. Pay is decent.

    For a professional, expect 50 hr work week minimum... sometimes higher depending on work loads.

    Cons

    Too many reorganizations over past 5 years. Each time they take longer than anticipated and leave many employees struggling with understanding where they fit in and what their directions should be.

    Advice to Management

    Stop outsourcing so many jobs to contractors who bid the lowest price. Price does not equal speed or quality.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent. My direct management has been great.
    Lot's of new initiatives with great potential to significantly improve our products and bottom line.

    Cons

    Executive management cares only about stock price. Several years of furloughs and layoffs along with a systematic cutting of employee benefits has led to extremely poor morale and general apathy. Now people are leaving on their own and executive management has put a hiring freeze in place. Staffing levels are way too low across the board to be effective.

    Pros

    Good Salary
    Professional Environment

    Cons

    Very Political Environment
    Too Many Layers of Management, e.g. Vice Presidents reporting to Senior Vice Presidents

    Working Nights and Weekends is Commonplace

    Advice to Management

    A company cannot "downsize" its way to greatness. Organic growth and innovation can drive business growth.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay and close to my residence

    Cons

    Pay raises for US employees average once every two years and run at ~2%. Benefits continue to be cut over past several years. Expect long hours and no appreciation. My area moved to open floor plan so there is no longer any personal space.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of knowledge in many industries walks out the door because your opinion and treatment of employees has become so calloused and indifferent about work / life balance.
