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

    Pros

    The team I am on invested in hiring experienced professionals to build skilled teams in support of big initiatives. They also just started a great new onboarding program for new hires and the HR tools are very easy to use. There is also great technology, software's and infrastructure to support global collaboration.

    Cons

    There is no work space / office space for new (and many existing) employees

    Advice to Management

    Revisit looking at best business practices to enable remote working and consider re-implementing a remote-work program

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Honeywell makes a wide range of significant components for everything that flies. The technical challenges can be very interesting and some of Honeywell's solutions are unique and successful.

    Cons

    Recent executive changes foretell major strategic changes in many of the company's product lines. The company has 25,000 engineers, scientists, and technicians, 60% of whom don't write software. It's unlikely that a company that constantly reminds it's employees that it is a software company is going to keep those smart engineers much longer. Technical expertise is no longer valued by the top three-four layers of good old boy executives. The technical career path exists on paper. No one knows what the requirements are to climb the last two-three steps.

    Advice to Management

    Reducing the incentives to stay (pension changes), constantly neglecting 60% of your technical staff, and refusing to acknowledge that technical expertise takens years to develop is going to lead to serious problems. Guys who just graduated from college cannot solve problems vexing people who have done their jobs for 30-40 years.

    Pros

    As an account manager I spend all my time in the field. I have freedom to set my schedule an operate with minimal oversight. As long as my contractors were helping produce, everything is fine!

    Cons

    It is a fee for service contract based work. state regulators over electricity providers have to approve. It is a long drawn out process.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work weeks and schedules. 9/80. Clean, safe environment. Lots of great innovative talent and people. New and changing technology. Great place to ...START! And a great stepping stone. Use them as they use you.

    Cons

    Below market target on salary offerings. Healthcare and assessment process is totalitarian. Benefits have been scaled back, while we are told to our face that shareholders are more important. Company surveys are a joke. The obvious bad results (i.e.: benefit) gets skimmed over by top management, while they focus on the minuscule as change goals. Lots of managers from GE, still old philosophy of ridding of top and bottom 10% by an antiquated 9-block system, which results a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the GE mentality and 9-block practice. You should have figured that out by now. Stop telling your employees that your shareholders come first, while taking away benefits from the people who make this company successful. Why are you a leader in technology, but a follower in benefits and perceived worth as an employee to the company?

    Pros

    exciting place to work, very fast pace, lots of change, good people in the trenches.

    Cons

    Corporate management only has 30-day patience for results. This trickles down into organization culture. The constant pressure to deliver 90 results for Wall Street results in continuous upper management churn & burn mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Need to better balance the longer term strategic growth initiatives and invest more into innovative technology. Let the staff do there job and build future solutions over 12-18 month period. Great new technology takes time. Even Apple has delayed a new iPhone intro in the past. Need to better balance this with the short term financial commitments of the share owners. In the long term, the company will benefit and grow top & bottom lines if they look longer term.
