    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company to work For

    Cons

    Lack of strong management. Senior Leadership has lost touch with the employee base. The only driver now is shareholder value. This value proposition is coming at the expense of employees.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost touch with your employee base. It is no longer as advantageous to work for Honeywell. Other companies cultures have surpassed Honeywells and the offer more competitive employee advantages including lower healthcare cost.

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay pretty well. Overall steady work.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy makes it impossible to feel like you are accomplishing anything. Terrible silo effect between departments, in some cases even animosity.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a sense of purpose, a general mission that everyone can buy into. I hope the new plant manager is more oriented toward manufacturing. Champion worthwhile activities. Break down barriers. Get rid of hostile managers who cannot cooperate in a team.

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

    Pros

    Average medical insurance coverage at a high premium (this usually qualifies to be a bad thing) the brand name and occasional smart and dedicated coworkers

    Cons

    it's too big and inefficient. there are useless corporate mandates that do not fit the need or reality of each site that need to be complied regardless. long tenure corporate bureaucrats take pride in being stuck with the same company for 40 years and not seen anything else outside of honeywell. to make it worse, they prey on employees that do not fit their stereotype and improve process/procedure not know to honeywell

    Advice to Management

    there has to be a way to run this machine more efficiently

    Pros

    Human Resources?? There are no pros. A dozen experiences with them, all horrible.

    Cons

    The entire Human Resources function is run by amateurs.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new Aero HR vendor. They are miserably inept. When it comes to handling employees lives, the lowest cost provider may not be the best bet.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    New & rewarding work on tech development projects that produce systems & software products that enhance automation, usability and safety of avionics systems deployed for commercial & business aircraft.

    Cons

    Support of metrics collection on progress towards milestones and repetitive quoting of project costs steals engineering time that should be applied to quality systems development, integration & testing as well as work on patents.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits are not attractive for current employees or potential new hires or for retention compared to other companies in the sector. Too many people employed who are not the immediate supervisors whose main job is collecting status & metrics to feed Executive management (non-value added work). Innovation is stifled as long as people have to spend time on continuos/daily status rather than focusing on execution, quality and innovation (new designs, patent applications, etc)

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

    Pros

    The people who work there are really great. Especially those on the floor. They are passionate about their work and truly want to do great work when given the right resources.

    Cons

    - The leadership is only worried about two or three metrics that corporate has identified and will adjust everything to meet those metrics (this is not how to correctly run the business)
    - Too worried about just getting deliveries out the door and not about putting out quality product. Would rather ship something out knowing it will come back
    - Too slow and have to jump through too many hoops to get something done
    - Culture is adverse to change
    - Too reactive and not strategic

    Advice to Management

    Need to change culture of work force starting at the top

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay, people,hours and no uniforms.

    Cons

    Management is horrible, benefits used to be good really high deductible now. Reviews really bad supervisors put no effort into knowing employees even less effort into reviews. Only thing they care about are shareholders. They spend no money on updating equipment but they love wasting money on furniture and trying to impress auditors by stopping production to move things and clean. Mandatory overtime due to rifs and alot of lost talent due to furloughs.

    Advice to Management

    Less indirect more hourly folks. Hire supervisors with degrees not buffing experience. Spend more on updating equipment less on waste. Stop relying on suppliers by outsourcing you are killing ottr.
