    I worked at Honeywell (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At least you have a job. The company must be doing things somewhere, because the CEO is being richly rewarded and they were always talking a lot of good things happening in the future at the same time management was saying there was no pay increase.

    Cons

    Continually being negatively motivated by being told at least you have a job. This little phrase was sprinkled around repeatedly. Especially at salary review time, but not so much when talking about corporate profits or the bonus being given the CEO.
    Leadership was sorely lacking at the site and there seemed to be no big picture plan. When management was told by professionals that managers were not listening, an additional dozen or so managers were hired from internal personnel. Actually most of the people who weren't listening were promoted. Don't even attempt to try to tell your immediate supervisor, much less management, that they might be doing something wrong or incorrectly, and that there might be a better way to get things done. Big on 'people are our most important asset', but a lot of lip service and little action. To contrast, there were people being treated rather well. Must be some method to the madness. The culture seemed strange at this location in promoting managers who were not getting the job done. Expect to be like any other company - management wants you to do everything and help them to continually improve - constantly preaching change and yet fighting it every step of the way to eventual contract loss.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth. Stop dragging down motivated people. This was a contracting location and someone really ticked the customer off. Of course, the company was not really making a good faith effort to deliver the product.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn new skills, opportunity to meet and learn from good leaders

    Cons

    Laying people off, forcing people to retire, forcing people to work mandatory overtime for 6 days a week. Very little leadership development, corporate micromanaging, very negative and frustrating place to work. no investment in employees, it's a revolving door of young motivated people trying to make a name for themselves at the bottom of the pay scale. They cancel annual raises, cut training programs like Green belt doc Sigma, old dirty building that has water leaking through the roof when it rains. Benefits are discouraging.

    Advice to Management

    Lean will never work when you have a union who's whole philosophy is to do things the way they've always been done. Stop putting the burden of what the leadership team has agreed to on the backs of the factory. Leadership needs to support its team, not tax it. Invest in the employees.

    Pros

    This company is rotten to the core! Excellent match for fakers and usurpers

    Cons

    Company promotes a Communist-style management: nepotism, corruption, dictatorial chain of command and control, hidden politics, non-accountability of management, promotion of the young, obedient inepts fertile to maniplulation and control - an overall unfair and toxic environment. HR personnel will follow this objective evaluation with a plethora of countless positive fictive evaluation, under the umbrella of annonimity.

    Advice to Management

    Disband your cliques and rebuild all management from ground up.

    Pros

    Good people (co-workers)
    Well known
    Good place to leave

    Cons

    Management lacks direction
    Reorganization is constant
    No vision or strategy
    President/CEO of SPS has no leadership capabilities, does not trust any one and has surrounded himself with "yes-men"
    Benefits are horrible
    Really bad culture, most people are looking to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Trust people, micromanaging does nothing but show you don't trust them. Fix internal systems. Going fast is stupid without a strategy/plan - GET ONE!

    Pros

    Excellent technical products for aerospace/space industry.

    Cons

    Stuck in the old military industrial complex methodology of operating. Superb propaganda machine for publicity. Outsources everything (Trump take note). Does not value any employee long or short term unless your one of the targeted 'stars'.

    Advice to Management

    The world is transparent to everything a corporation does or doesn't do with the internet.
    Everyone knows the 'Honeywell' branding is to hide the real name of the corporation:'Allied Signal'. You need to appreciate all employee contributions and not just hack away every year at benefits and compensation.

    Pros

    Good place to get beat down and loose passion for being a great engineer.

    Cons

    Too numerous to mention. Suffice to say if you are considering a job here stay away!

    Advice to Management

    Stop the blame game. As managers you should be there to support and build your people to be the best they can be . . . Not to tear them down always looking at the negatives and never rewarding the positives.
