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

    Pros

    Interesting work when you can find it.

    Cons

    9 Block performance review system sucks. Managers are encouraged to place a certain amount of employees in the low end of the scale. Management won't tell you specifics when receiving low performance rating. Too many dam meetings. New building is much smaller than old one. Everything is crammed into a smaller building.

    Advice to Management

    Scrap your dam 9-block performance rating system.

    Pros

    Work and many nice people.

    Cons

    Benefits. Unrealistic schedules. Constant RIFs. Lack of real respect from management. Used to have real flex time and vacation. Now I have none, I have to ask permission to take a day off. But I am still expected to work overtime all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Change your attitude toward your workers and treat them as assets not liabilities.

    Pros

    -Company name recognition
    -Fair starting salary for first job

    Cons

    -Very unorganized
    -Experience did not meet what was advertised
    -Lots of turnover

    Advice to Management

    In my experience program participants were used by site management. We were looked at as free resources and the number of our rotations were cut from 3 to 2, while the length was extended from 6 months to 1 year. This was because "the departments couldn't handle the turnover". The program participants are not included on the site headcount and thus should be used as extra headcount allowing them to flow freely to new experiences and gain better understanding of the business. Most value from the development program came from the title on my resume. If you are a recent grad expecting a well rounded developmental experience and great opportunities upon completing the program, look elsewhere. (NOTE: I worked at a site that was not near the AERO headquarters and I hear that the experience is better in the Phoenix area.)

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with are just wonderful all round.

    It's a good place to start building your skill set but it doesn't mean there is a conserted effort to advance your career. After all, you're just a tool.

    Cons

    You're just a tool management wishes to exploit for as long as you're willing to bow your head.

    No interest in solving the pressing engineering problems. You're expected to stick to "established methods" and agree with everything management goes with. You will be managed and led by some of the most incompetent engineers in the field, don't make the mistake of knowing too much science. That's frowned upon and you'll be targeted and your life made a living hell.

    The more effort you put in your work, the more devalued your time is. Political acumen will go a long way in this company. If you plan to be in engineering for a long time, don't work here for over a couple years.

    On the other hand, if you have aspirations for running for office or being a politician, this is a great place to work with an environment to help nurture a lot of the backstabbing sabotaging strategies and techniques needed for a successful political career.

    Many of the people in charge in the firm are not the managers but an elite group of clandestine members of a religious cult who seek to preserve people like them and rid the place of outsiders like you. If you belong to the institution, you'll do fine. If not, run..

    Best of luck

    Advice to Management

    Honeywell KC is a sinking engineering firm thanks to your contributions.

    Pros

    Pay - the golden handcuffs are hard to ignore

    Cons

    Work life balance, unrealistic demands, took too long to hire to replace

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what the hourly employees and lower level supervisors/salaried people are saying to you. I loved the company and only left after 3 RIF's and 3 furloughs in less than a year. Employees left, were never replaced and we were expected to pick up the pieces.
