    I worked at Honeywell full-time

    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.

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

    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!

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

    Pros

    Starting salary might be pretty good

    Cons

    Treats employees as necessary evils and costs to be minimized. Annual erosion of benefits. Worst of all is the intellectual property agreement that you probably won't see until the day you actually start work. Extremely one sided with significant restrictions for one and two years after you leave. Agreement also has you give up important legal defense rights. Telecommuting banned last year after a decade of encouraging it.

    Advice to Management

    Quit promising Wall Street that you will increase earning per share every quarter since, for now, you can't increase sales and have to continue cutting costs by eliminating jobs and having unpaid furloughs.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people who work for Honeywell want to truly meet customer demands and make great products but the demand is so high from upper mananagement and no raises, benefits, and good job is the way of Honeywell anymore.

    Cons

    Lots of benefits taken after union talk a few years back. Raises are terrible and new people being trained to train the older regular people. The new people are running the show and the quality is not there. They are being paid more or the same as people that have been there along time. Insurance is to high to keep. If you buddy your supervisor you will work your way up, and hanging out with leads is the way to move up too. What will that do for your raise???

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your people not managment.

    Pros

    They pay a decent wage.

    Cons

    Benefits get worse every year. Management does not care about the employees. You must get the product out the door by any means possible (even when you ethically should not)

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    It's a job that provides a paycheck. Not much else.

    Cons

    No consistent metrics to be evaluated on.
    People in management have never done the job they are creating rules and processes for.
    It's a punishment system. One mistake wipes out virtually all of the positives you've contributed.
    Benefits are horrible.
    You don't matter to the company. All you are is an employee id number, not a person.

    Advice to Management

    Put people in management positions who have experience working in the departments they are supposed to run.

    Include employee suggestion for setting goals and ways in which to attain those goals.
    Don't send surveys to ask how you are doing. You won't like the answer and they won't improve morale.

    I worked at Honeywell (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, ok pay and benefits

    Cons

    Quite a few times, I heard the phrase your paycheck is your reward. Overall, pretty much not friendly to their employees. There is very little if any rewards you can give your employees or get yourself.

    Management lacks leadership skills and is antagonistic towards workers, making middle management a quick path to failure if you want to take care of your folks. Managers, not leaders, not dynamic, not friendly.

    What pretty much is the acme of Honeywell is SQDIC (safety, quality, delivery, inventory, cost) has no reference to people. Pretty sad.

    Advice to Management

    Drop SQDIC and trying to impress Wall Street with lean manufacturing phrases. Focus on people and your returns will be infinitely better than some canned templates.

    Pros

    Good talented people that came from acquired companies.

    Cons

    1940s Autocratic SPS President - John Waldron.....thinks he is the smartest guy in the room. Rumor has it that he rose through the ranks due to relative nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Darius needs to talk to the field employees to understand what is really going on. JW, only manages up and not down, and has trained his senior managers to do the same. Division is to internally process focused and has lost site externally as to what customers want and what competition is doing. Time for Darius to spend more time in the field.
