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

    Pros

    Steady Job: pays just enough to live comfortably if you are a single person.

    9/80 schedule: Great way to add another day to your weekend.

    Work/Life balance: Not too bad

    Average 401k matching

    Cons

    Nearly everything:

    Pay: Below industry standard for all positions across the board.

    Benefits: Complete garbage, high monthly cost + high deductible. If you have a family, be prepared to pay 1000s.

    Corporate: 9 block diagram, great way to demoralize the already demoralized workforce.

    Work: its piling on yet people keep leaving the company so now 1 person is doing the work for 2-3 people. New projects are coming through the door.

    Organization: very disorganized, no one seems to be doing the duties of their particular job, everyone is jumping around doing someone else's.

    Career advancement: You have to submit your own essay if you want to advance to another level (which comes with a measly raise), almost not worth the title because now you will be responsible for more but at a barely higher salary.

    Cafeteria: completely overpriced, taking advantage of employees eat-onsite to charge them high prices for low quality food. Aramak is the server.

    Absolutely No benefits of being a government contractor. The president of the company repeats the same mantra every meeting, "we need to become more efficient."

    No Bonus

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, there is a reason why the turnover rate is climbing. Hiring more and more people won't solve the cause. Once Engineers get a couple years of experience, they become more attractive to other companies with better pay and benefits. Improve your current engineer workforces morale. Give them something to be proud of.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Vacation package is great. Other than that there's no pros to this company.

    Cons

    Insurance is catastrophic. Be better if you were on government insurance. No time off other than vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Quit working employees like dogs. They have families just like you 6 figure bosses. Give insurance that doesn't cost half their pay.

  7. "Cost control focused - cannot do more than minimally meet its commitments and getting worse"

    Pros

    Good people at the company. Because of the complexity of working here, veterans can really be successful in the worst of situations.

    Cons

    People are beaten down and leaving. It is tough to get replacements. Training is nearly nonexistent. Travel to do your job is also nearly impossible under current cost control measures.

    Advice to Management

    Unless you are just trying to sell the company off in pieces quickly, think about how to do more with more (growth) not more with less.

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

    Pros

    Hires good engineers who develop excellent technology

    Cons

    Tends to hire and promote white males with Ivy league education. Benefits have been significantly reduced. Too many organizational and management changes. Systems and processes are designed to feed senior leadership with information and too much time is wasted in submitting this information. Tends to hire too may people in senior management roles with no one to do the work - need more worker bees rather than directors who make power point slides.

    One policy does not fit all.
