    Pros

    Great people. Local management is supportive. Interesting work.

    Cons

    "Making the numbers" seems more important to corporate management than doing what's necessary for long-term growth. This is especially harmful to a sector like Defense and Space that has to think long-term, not the next quarter.

    Pros

    Programs are fun to work on. There is a wealth of knowledge from employees who have been there many years. Mots of mentor ship opportunities if you seek out and build relationships with the right experts. Most of the employees are fun to work with. There is tons to learn if you pay attention and strive to build knowledge.

    Cons

    Benefits are horrible. Cost cutting in all the wrong places. Departments merging that have nothing to do with one another. Employees are some what beat down with RIFS and Furloughs hanging over your head all the time. Quality and customer service would suffer if the employees didn't actually care and didn't work twice as hard like they do. Its very hard to move up unless you job hop, which creates a bunch of people who are mediocre at their jobs and gaps when they move to another department.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember that employees are shareholders as well. Our furloughs a huge salary are ludicrous, who needs that much money, and who is actually worth it? How about you donate those bonuses so that employees can keep their jobs and not have to take unpaid time off. We depend on our incomes to pay for actual necessities, not things like islands to retire on. All of your employees feel this way.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Honeywell (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At least you have a job. The company must be doing things somewhere, because the CEO is being richly rewarded and they were always talking a lot of good things happening in the future at the same time management was saying there was no pay increase.

    Cons

    Continually being negatively motivated by being told at least you have a job. This little phrase was sprinkled around repeatedly. Especially at salary review time, but not so much when talking about corporate profits or the bonus being given the CEO.
    Leadership was sorely lacking at the site and there seemed to be no big picture plan. When management was told by professionals that managers were not listening, an additional dozen or so managers were hired from internal personnel. Actually most of the people who weren't listening were promoted. Don't even attempt to try to tell your immediate supervisor, much less management, that they might be doing something wrong or incorrectly, and that there might be a better way to get things done. Big on 'people are our most important asset', but a lot of lip service and little action. To contrast, there were people being treated rather well. Must be some method to the madness. The culture seemed strange at this location in promoting managers who were not getting the job done. Expect to be like any other company - management wants you to do everything and help them to continually improve - constantly preaching change and yet fighting it every step of the way to eventual contract loss.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth. Stop dragging down motivated people. This was a contracting location and someone really ticked the customer off. Of course, the company was not really making a good faith effort to deliver the product.
