    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Peers, employees, support team, and site management were all great to work with. Lots of smart, motivated people with good attitudes who are willing to work together in tough headwinds.

    Cons

    In 18 months working at the Redmond site, I was furloughed for three separate 1-week periods without pay and did not receive a raise. This was the case for ALL supervisors, managers, and engineers. Band 4 and up had bonuses cut as well.

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

    Pros

    The pay is decent. My direct management has been great.
    Lot's of new initiatives with great potential to significantly improve our products and bottom line.

    Cons

    Executive management cares only about stock price. Several years of furloughs and layoffs along with a systematic cutting of employee benefits has led to extremely poor morale and general apathy. Now people are leaving on their own and executive management has put a hiring freeze in place. Staffing levels are way too low across the board to be effective.
