    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large corporation with a procedure for everything. Support services are above par.

    Cons

    Impersonal treatment from upper management. CEO has expressly stated that work/life issues are not a priority. Expensive insurance. Upper management has problems prioritizing and controlling large projects as they refuse to listen to engineers with decades of non-Honeywell experience.

    Advice to Management

    You hire and pay top engineering talent you need to listen to them. Listening to contractors has caused $100's of thousands in cost over runs on projects for new plants that perform poorly. Mandate that all projects no matter what size have Primavera style project schedule for project tasks, manpower loading, and performance.

    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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting work projects, some good co-workers

    Cons

    Very low pay, middle and upper management doesn't care about employees, only about their bonus checks

    Advice to Management

    Quit flowing down your own goals and set goals that accurately rate people's work based on what they do, not on how it affects milestones that they don't control. Quit Stack Ranking - it doesn't encourage production it discourages cooperation.
