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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, kind of unlimited vacation policy

    Cons

    Over processed, scientific management approach. Attitudeus everything and every person is interchangeable and expendable

    Advice to Management

    Scientific management didn't work in the start of the last century, why would it work now? Just because you have a tool in SAP is no excuse to blame the rules of SAP for not allowing on time delivery and causing poor quality. If SAP isn't working out, change the way the program is set up. Use tge SAP metrics to enhance our operation not govern it. Listen to the people doing the job they know best how to get it done on time.

    Pros

    Engineering Rotational program. Big company means lots of opportunity to move around and grow. Get to work on great products.

    Cons

    Recently banned working from home. Treated like just a number. Benefits are not the best. Compensation is mediocre. Tuition reimbursement is almost non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep good, diverse talent, value your employees and compensate accordingly. Lack of flexibility and benefits is severely impacting your top female talent.

    Pros

    Great place to learn how to work under stressful situations. You can learn a lot in a short period of time because you are given tons of opportunity to showcase your talent.

    Cons

    People were not respectful of each other in the workplace. It is not uncommon to be talked to by leaders and coworkers like you are beneath them

    Advice to Management

    Honeywell has great workplace behaviors. Unfortunately they are not enforced and it makes for a very unhealthy work environment.

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

    Pros

    * We make some really great products.
    * Stock price is doing great
    * Repositioning products to serve IoT. Lots of software and machine interaction.
    * First year of unlimited vacation

    Cons

    * Treats employees terrible
    * Very small or no raises at all the last six years
    * Healthcare costs close to $300 every two weeks with a $3000 deductible
    * 401k match is below average.
    * Most are afraid to take any vacation.
    * Three weeks off with out pay in the last 18 months.
    * Company stopped paying any $ towards Dental.
    * No bonuses ever, for most employees.
    * Employee product discount is not very good
    * Manufacturing and supply chain is very disorganized. Both our customers and suppliers think we are disfunctional.
    * 3 Reduction in Force (layoffs) in 2016. Seemed to go after older employees.
    * Worlds worst performance review system. Bosses are forced by HR to rank people bad. And no one can get the top score.

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying the CEO $36 million a year and then tell us you cant pay for dental or give us a raise or keep us employed 52 weeks per year.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k, health and dental and the pay is also good.

    Cons

    In constant fear of layoffs, I've seen too many good workers leave and bad ones stay. This facility seems to be going down the drain sooner than later; many of the manufacturing has been sent overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the employees.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    cutting edge technology and development in Aerospace

    Cons

    Process overload that leads to extensive non-value added work driving up our development costs

    Advice to Management

    Re-engineer our development processes and lean out significant non-value added processes. Start paying for performance and managing resource talent. Losing a lot of good people.
