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

    Pros

    I honestly can't find a plus for this company.

    Cons

    Everyone is overworked and not getting paid for overtime, management kept telling the team the project has no money but requires us to work extra hours. The unlimited vacation is a joke, you get crucified for taking too many days off. There's fear in this new culture that if you are an underperformer you will not have a project to work on and you will be let go. It's also top heavy, too many people managing projects and not enough people doing real work. Management demand is also unrealistic, they push you to deliver the products but won't give you resources or time to complete it. The benefit package (medical, dental, vision) is nothing to brag about, you pay a lot for a family plan although the company is self-insured. There's also no remote work policy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people that make you successful. Stop paying attention to your paychecks and bonuses, you won't have enough good people to make you rich if you can't keep them.

    Pros

    Work from home. Nice ppl that you work with. But not many. Many r very old school and stuck in their ways.

    Cons

    Pay is low. Super long hours. Expect to work weekends. Cash is king. Folks r very stagnant and very set. No need to improve what they're doing. Very little automation.

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

    Pros

    Location, flexibility for summer hours

    Cons

    Employees are mistreated really bad. Benefits are getting thinner and thinner every year. They stopped our pension. They reduced our 401K matching from 100% to 75% and now they are talking about stopping it temporarily (God knows for how long), mainly because the company is not doing well. They have a terrible medical health plan and it’s getting worse every year. We didn’t have merit increased for past 3 years. In addition, they reduced our salary last year by 10% for 8 months. The company especially UOP has been doing really really bad since 2014 and since mid-2014 they started downsizing and laying off employees like crazy. If your manager doesn’t like you, regardless of years of service it’s highly possible that you are in the list for the headcount reduction. Yes, that’s right. We had so many employees with over 20 or even 30 years of experience who got laid off in past 3 years. The only explanation was “we are sorry to let you go. The company is not doing well.” Upper malmanagement care about nothing but saving their own jobs. Job security and moral are really low and keep getting lower and lower. Most employees are currently looking for new opportunities outside. The company doesn’t have a good future. STAY AWAY FROM HONEYWELL, ESPECIALLY UOP.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management and executives need to take trainings on moral and ethics. They need to stop misrepresenting the company to shareholders. Headcount reduction, freezing merit, salary deduction, and so on in past 3 years crated hostile job environment where you couldn’t trust your own manager.

    Pros

    so slow moving that it can be confused with a government agency, so VERY STABLE job, job security is high.

    Cons

    hard to advance a career, very top heavy, way too many managers and meetings, very little people to do the work. The resources that are available are in China or India. Doesn't hire engineers stateside, all outsourced around the world.

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

    Pros

    Projects at Clearwater Space are for space flight.

    Cons

    Authoritarian management style, lack of clear direction in production, frequent furloughs and layoffs, and only a high deductible healthcare plan.

    Advice to Management

    Determine the direction of the organization, set ground rules and follow those rules. Allowing each customer to set priorities causes internal conflict between programs. The lack of a consistent direction is inefficient.

    Pros

    They will hire you for cheap ,promise of higher earning give you an unjust job performance and a tiny raise if any. But hell they were moving ops to Mexico.

    Cons

    Promise you things you will never see. Micro manage you to death

    Advice to Management

    Back off ,let people do their job.

    Pros

    The job is there is you want it. You will learn a lot while you are employed with Honeywell.

    Cons

    Don’t expect to be paid what you are worth. Honeywell is consistently going through organizational transformation and chews through its general management/leadership. Very little employee recognition happens here. Work life balance can be a struggle.

    Pros

    They bring in good people. It's big enough you kind find something else to do if you don't like your current role and they seem to encourage that.

    Cons

    They treat people like tools and numbers. You're always two levels removed from anyone who can make any decisions and they hide behind the rules they make up.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time trying to make it seem like you care and more time in self reflection to learn how to actually care about people.

    Pros

    Having the name Honeywell on your resume

    Cons

    Actually working for Honeywell and having their super expensive and ridiculous health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    I know Honeywell is like ginormous, but that doesn't mean you get to treat employees like jail house rent a workers. Share the love and profits. Bring back that pension tight wads!
