    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work
    Great co-workers
    Pay is ok for the area.

    Cons

    Wages are stagnant. Benefits are continually eroding, and local HR has zero pull to make any changes.

    Engineering organization is split into multiple silos, with competing metrics. Result is fragmented leadership, conflicts, and buck-passing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to call a foosball table in the lunch room a "benefit".

    Pros

    Great co-workers and pay is good for Rhode Island

    Cons

    Their philosophy has changed. They no longer view employees as assets, we are now an expense that needs to be reduced.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat people as people and not a means to an end.

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

    Pros

    Honeywell is still engaged in world-class technology development. There are several compelling projects to work on and good opportunities to develop skills and find challenging work.

    Most of the employees are good people. They are good to work with and are committed to team-focused accomplishments.

    Salaries seem to be in line with market averages.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible. They are embarrassingly bad. We're asked to pay thousands of dollars a year in premiums for a high deductible health plan that pays for nothing beyond annual checkups until we've spent thousands.

    We're asked to pay 100% of the premiums for the dental plan, if we choose to enroll in it.

    There is no guaranteed vacation time.

    Sick time is monitored and restricted.

    The opportunity to work from home as part of a normal schedule in no longer available.

    The employee stock purchase program is no longer available.

    There are no bonuses.

    There is a tuition reimbursement plan ... it will only cover a few credit hours per year, though.

    Advice to Management

    You've been in doomsday mode for a while now. Reducing headcount. Stripping benefits. Postponing promotions and skipping raises. Telling employees that times are tough.
    Maybe it's time to give it a rest and spend a few of your $4,809,000,000.00 annual income dollars on a less embarrassing benefit package.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    Been at Honeywell/AlliedSignal/Garret/AiResearch for almost 40 years. I've been privileged to work with some of the brightest, most talented people I've ever met. The work is very challenging, which tends to bring out the best in us. The culture is collaborative, and the projects are team oriented, and all are encouraged to bring the best they have to the job. Compensation is performance based. There is opportunity for growth and advancement, created by the development of new products, as well as attrition due to age demographics. New management at the top is extremely growth oriented and supports bold initiative and new ideas.

    Cons

    Ongoing benefits erosion, arguably, or not, consistent with the rest of the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Honeywell both does great things and is a great place to work, you need make it more rewarding as well, and re-enforce its foundation of human capital. It will pay off in the long run.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    Higher than average salaries with bonus potential.

    Cons

    Honeywell is constantly downsizing, so workload was always increasing without compensating for extra time. The stress of the constant rounds of furloughs and layoffs was demotivating, coupled with Honeywell's consistent poor performance in customer surveys when compared to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your human capital. Invest in improving customer perception.

    Its a job and pays the bills.

    Cons

    Last year 2016 we had 3 Furloungs. Some managers are just not right for the position. HR repesentative for ISC is not the appropiate person for the job
