    Pros

    Great people, great work, opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Overtime is always required and uncompensated. Removing benefits regularly, layoffs of great people with over 30 years of experience with the company. No future big picture planning, it is all about how do we get profits today.

    Pros

    People are great and hard working, teamwork atmosphere, flexible hours, accountability

    Cons

    Management structure changes significantly with turnover, each wanting to change things to put their spin on it. This practices leave employees wondering what will come next and hesitant to implement changes.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize management turnover, continue good communication flow down from corporate executives about direction and leadership goals.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time

    Pros

    - Exciting product
    - Exposure to suppliers, customers, and cross-functional coworkers around the world.

    Cons

    - The culture of continuous improvement is admirable until you find yourself inundated trying to execute on poorly planned top-down initiatives.
    - Honeywell doesn't do very well at professional development even compared to similar aerospace companies.
    - Honeywell Aerospace has had several layoffs and furloughs over the last year and a half. In recent years raises have not been given. Benefits were good about 10 years ago, but have steadily declined. Be sure to factor all of this in if you are considering an offer from Honeywell.

    Advice to Management

    Many top-down initiatives are rolled-out with huge flaws. Management isn't soliciting enough feedback from subordinates and subordinates don't feel comfortable managing in many cases. Steps to make the organization less hierarchical would improve this communication leading to better planned initiatives, employees that are more invested in their work, and ultimately better results.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Still a few good people left from before HON was purchased by Allied Signal who actually have a heart and care about co-workers. That said, they are retiring at a fast clip.

    Cons

    Little to no organic growth; that said profits increase year after year by cost cutting, primarily through employees through layoffs, furloughs, no raises, benefit cuts and not replacing those who leave. The approach appears to be to 'cut their way to greatness'.

    Pros

    -Competitive Pay
    -Supportive Manager
    -interesting product
    I guess i need more than 5 words. That's pretty hard to do in this section

    Cons

    -Management is numbers and deadline driven
    -Expected to work long hours
    -Blurred lines on engineering responsibilities. Engineers often tasked other job function duties since those who used to those jobs have been cut.
    -Overall low moral of workers and engineers alike.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for more engineering support and focus on quality.

    Pros

    Management encourages continuous Improvement ideas from all employee levels. Best ideas are implemented and recognition given to employees. Benefits; 401K, medical, etc were OK.
    Lots of training to help you advance or stay current with your job requirements.

    Cons

    High management turn over after 2 - 3 years of the acquisition. High workload makes it a bit difficult to balance work and personal life.

    Pros

    Great 401K match, pension, pay is decent. In Aerospace, I've been able to work on some of the most advanced avionics on the market. Overtime is almost always available.

    Cons

    Very expensive health insurance. Raises are low if any (0-2%). Management typically does not understand the aspects of a worker's job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming the economy for the reason employees are getting furloughed and told that they will get no raise. Raising the CEO's compensation by 43% and giving him access to two of the most expensive private jets in the world is absurd.
