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

    Pros

    I've never had a "corporate" job before so I was worried that I wouldn't assimilate, but thanks to some great people, supportive managers & some fun projects I can safely say I made the right decision. Those things aside there are a number of other things that make me happy with my move: lateral/upward mobility is one - the company thrives on moving talent across business units; allowing employees to stay engaged and interested. Location is another, the Morris Plains location is beautiful and really makes coming to work everyday easy. Also, upper management gets it, they seem to be making the right moves to pull in & keep talent and to move the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    Honeywell is still growing out of "old" corporate culture. There are times when you're working on something that should seemingly be easy, but you're hit with a roadblock that may take longer than you may be used to due to un-necessarily complex processes and/or a long approval chain. That seems to be heading the way of the dinosaur though - in my brief time here so far, it's already gotten better.

    Advice to Management

    Let that old corporate culture go away, Stay engaged with your employees, Keep innovating products and processes

    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.

    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.
