    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Honeywell makes a wide range of significant components for everything that flies. The technical challenges can be very interesting and some of Honeywell's solutions are unique and successful.

    Cons

    Recent executive changes foretell major strategic changes in many of the company's product lines. The company has 25,000 engineers, scientists, and technicians, 60% of whom don't write software. It's unlikely that a company that constantly reminds it's employees that it is a software company is going to keep those smart engineers much longer. Technical expertise is no longer valued by the top three-four layers of good old boy executives. The technical career path exists on paper. No one knows what the requirements are to climb the last two-three steps.

    Advice to Management

    Reducing the incentives to stay (pension changes), constantly neglecting 60% of your technical staff, and refusing to acknowledge that technical expertise takens years to develop is going to lead to serious problems. Guys who just graduated from college cannot solve problems vexing people who have done their jobs for 30-40 years.

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

    Pros

    Culture of mobility, common to move from one job to another every couple years. Allows working in program management without working from the bottom of engineering to the top (or in engineering at all).

    Cons

    Big company means you may just have one little piece of the puzzle instead of wearing major multiple different hats at once (sales, development, customer support, etc) with far-reaching scope.

    Advice to Management

    Help develop people to do more than just their job, and to fill the gaps in between.
