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

    Pros

    I recently started with Honeywell, which is the fifth company for which I have worked. From the moment I walked in the door on day one, the employees, management, and company have been communicative and supportive in ensuring I have the best onboarding experience possible. All to-do's, scheduling, materials, and introductions were laid out clearly in front of the new hires and we were made to feel welcome from the beginning until now. I have not heard or seen any other company who does onboarding as well as Honeywell.

    Cons

    I will add feedback here if I find a con but, for now, it's been a fantastic experience in every way.

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

    Pros

    Lots of work, challenging projects. Some good people here

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. Engineers are leaving in droves and Senior management isn't doing anything about it. They've been saying "we're working on it" for over a year now. They have a ridiculous overtime policy, you have to work an extra 5 hours per week for FREE before you even start to earn overtime, then it's just straight pay. Annual raises don't keep up with inflation or medical increases. Even with a promotion you are still slowly loosing money by working here. Last year I only got 2.6 percent. Just got a promotion and it was only 2% increase, but I'm managing nearly 30 projects!

    We are all overworked too. Many good engineers are leaving and we have to keep taking on extra work loads. Meanwhile they can't get new people in because they wont offer enough to attract anyone good.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the overtime! All of it! And give us competitive salaries with reasonable raises.

    They reward good work.
    Good working environment.

    Working with hazardous chemicals.
    Traffic is terrible, making a long day longer.

    Advice to Management

    Procurement policies are very bad and need to be changed to get better vendor and contractor competition.

    Pros

    Used to have some positive things to say, but not anymore.

    Cons

    Everything about the company from the salary and benefits to the management is seriously out of touch with the real world.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at short term results and look at long term solutions

    Pros

    Other than the people on my team, there is NONE!!!!

    Cons

    2 raises in 7 years and those were a pathetic 2%!!! Furloughs, layoffs, management turnover is incredible, because they just keep forcing them into early retirement if they can't improve sales and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue!!! Good people are leaving left and right because their is no incentive to perform! Quit bragging about the bottom line and start paying decent wages and give us a reason to stay!

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While my time at Honeywell was limited, you can tell that employee development and career advancement was an important part of Honeywell-- from the SMART review system to the employee training/skills development programs--you could tell that it was an integral part of the company. They also offer and in some ways promote changing positions within the company through their internal job search system.

    Cons

    Unfortunately for me, the opportunities to continue to work at a great company was cut short due to their unwillingness to allow for remote work/telecommuting--even though many of the projects that I would manage would be at remote locations (e.g. - not in the home office) and spent most of my time communicating with people on the phone of via Lync around the world. In my humble opinion, this type of position could very well be conducted from almost anywhere, especially with current technological advancements.

    Advice to Management

    See the cons section. Not all positions require the employee to report into an office everyday, nor do they require the employee to be local to the home office.

    Pros

    Honeywell is a good employer - provides opportunities for all of the training you can handle - referring to CBT type courses. This ranges for Agile, PMP, Six-sigma, MS Office, etc.. The people are good to work with and there is opportunity to gain experience in diverse control projects, fire alarm, and security. They have a good 401k plan and incentives

    Cons

    Honeywell is process driven to an excess - gets bogged down with a lot of corporate baggage, i.e. check box type reporting. Internal product support is cumbersome, slow, and difficult. Sales teams are not held accountable for omissions which places the burden on the Project Management Team to deliver under budget. There is too much overhead to compete with smaller companies in the highly competitive controls market unless it is a very large project.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the processes to bring a project from RFQ phase to estimate review, hold sales team accountable for estimates. Streamline the support process without adding additional burden on projects in process. Streamline skills assessment and reviews for direct reports into a more realistic and functional format - the process is very time consuming and provides strict guidelines that provide limited value.
