    Pros

    Decent pay and close to my residence

    Cons

    Pay raises for US employees average once every two years and run at ~2%. Benefits continue to be cut over past several years. Expect long hours and no appreciation. My area moved to open floor plan so there is no longer any personal space.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of knowledge in many industries walks out the door because your opinion and treatment of employees has become so calloused and indifferent about work / life balance.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Has many loyal and hard working employees with great teams to work with. Honeywell has always been able to seek out talent. There is a very nice onsite gym which is a great benefit. There is ability to move up within the company if you apply yourself.

    Cons

    Multiple Furloughs, Layoffs (RIF's), Reduction in benefits, So much change (recent re-org) in management, Seems to be no loyalty to employees and retain talent/knowledge, very low company morale.

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

    Pros

    The only Pro I can think of is Allied Signal will soon completely destroy another company reputation, and need to acquire another new name.

    Cons

    Cut headcount to unsustainable levels drive employees to continuously do more and more (now driving for 35% overtime) negative culture and moral from top down. Employees are viewed as disposable, Seasoned subject matter experts are leaving the company but instead of acknowledging this as regrettable turnover, it is shrugged off as oh well just hire someone younger for less money. HR is staffed by by 20 & 30 year old inexperienced pawns. That think posting positive reviews are fooling anyone.

    Advice to Management

    honestly I don't see any turning back at this point, you ave drank the cool-aid and jumped off the cliff there is no going back you may as well enjoy the ride down.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Honeywell offers fair pay, good work experience, decent benefits, typical vacations, and holidays off. You can learn much there. It's a good place to get work experience.

    Cons

    I worked in Supply Chain Management at HON's Tempe, AZ site. High stress. No matter how much you do, it's never enough. We abused suppliers, squeezed every dime from them. Management makes unreasonable demands is if they're not met, the employee career is threatened. This is a metrics driven company. Employees are under constant fear of layoff (typically around the Holidays every year). It's a terrible, stressful environment. You've been warned.

    Advice to Management

    You should set reasonable, achievable targets. Respect your suppliers, reduce the stress level. HON can be a fun and interesting place to work without the stress.
