    Pros

    A huge company which gives you access to multiple levels of a B2B value chain. Many Options to switch from one business to another. Strategic Marketing drives decision making.

    Cons

    The HR function is completely superseded by the line management! Line managers are often promoted salesman and not specialists. Which means a number of functions start behaving like sales.

    Advice to Management

    Hire specialists! Empower HR!

    Pros

    Human Resources?? There are no pros. A dozen experiences with them, all horrible.

    Cons

    The entire Human Resources function is run by amateurs.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new Aero HR vendor. They are miserably inept. When it comes to handling employees lives, the lowest cost provider may not be the best bet.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It supplies a clean safe work environment, but we all know it has nothing to do with employee safety.

    Cons

    It's arrogance with it's suppliers is leaving it's Aerospace division without parts. Honeywell has a policy it only pays every 6 months, most of the time it takes longer then that for it to pay out. That being said we are not getting our parts and sub-assemblies because our suppliers are tired of this and will not ship until they are paid and I don't blame them. 42 billion dollar company and it does this to it suppliers. I'm not sure if this is an attempt by Honeywell to divest in it's Aerospace division, but it does have a history of setting up a division to fail. Either way it is an embarrassment to all the Buyers who have to deal with these suppliers. I never thought Honeywell would treat it's suppliers as bad as it does it's employees but here it is.

    Advice to Management

    Ether fix our supply problems or do all Aerospace employees a favor and sell us. This I'm to big to fail arrogance with your employees and suppliers has to end. Because this delusion of becoming a software company is a joke because I've seen the software you design and it's not pretty.

    Pros

    * We make some really great products.
    * Stock price is doing great
    * Repositioning products to serve IoT. Lots of software and machine interaction.
    * First year of unlimited vacation

    Cons

    * Treats employees terrible
    * Very small or no raises at all the last six years
    * Healthcare costs close to $300 every two weeks with a $3000 deductible
    * 401k match is below average.
    * Most are afraid to take any vacation.
    * Three weeks off with out pay in the last 18 months.
    * Company stopped paying any $ towards Dental.
    * No bonuses ever, for most employees.
    * Employee product discount is not very good
    * Manufacturing and supply chain is very disorganized. Both our customers and suppliers think we are disfunctional.
    * 3 Reduction in Force (layoffs) in 2016. Seemed to go after older employees.
    * Worlds worst performance review system. Bosses are forced by HR to rank people bad. And no one can get the top score.

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying the CEO $36 million a year and then tell us you cant pay for dental or give us a raise or keep us employed 52 weeks per year.
