    Pros

    The job is there is you want it. You will learn a lot while you are employed with Honeywell.

    Cons

    Don’t expect to be paid what you are worth. Honeywell is consistently going through organizational transformation and chews through its general management/leadership. Very little employee recognition happens here. Work life balance can be a struggle.

    Pros

    Strong company name. Good benefit package for employees.

    Cons

    Management too hung up on "meeting roll down goals" to actually lead. "Walk the Talk gentlemen"!! Employees need actual motivation other than artificial goals created at review time to pat ones-self on the back. Actual raises would of gone a long way and the message "Well folks, we just didn't meet our BS goals so no raises for below management level raise. Then why doesn't UPPER management take the hit also??

    Advice to Management

    WALK THE TALK!! LEAD BY EXAMPLE!! REALLY LISTEN TO THE EMPLOYEES!

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having the name Honeywell on your resume

    Cons

    Actually working for Honeywell and having their super expensive and ridiculous health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    I know Honeywell is like ginormous, but that doesn't mean you get to treat employees like jail house rent a workers. Share the love and profits. Bring back that pension tight wads!

    Pros

    They bring in good people. It's big enough you kind find something else to do if you don't like your current role and they seem to encourage that.

    Cons

    They treat people like tools and numbers. You're always two levels removed from anyone who can make any decisions and they hide behind the rules they make up.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time trying to make it seem like you care and more time in self reflection to learn how to actually care about people.

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

    Pros

    Good local coworkers, commiserate together

    Cons

    Mobile is a terrible city to live. Corporate management live their lives for shareholders and stock market. Sold their souls to money. Put less qualified people in upper management that have no idea what the business or the culture is about. Work the employees to the bone with decreased pay and limited overtime but yet when corporate is asked for more positions it is declined. Looking to unionize.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people in the field as they know what is going on and what is needed. Managing over the phone in a high rise office and you have no idea what is going on at the ground level will always set you up for failure as a company and decreases trust and morale. Plant management is awesome, their supervisors not so much. We looked to unionize last year but were appeased. It will happen again soon though.
