    Pros

    This company is rotten to the core! Excellent match for fakers and usurpers

    Cons

    Company promotes a Communist-style management: nepotism, corruption, dictatorial chain of command and control, hidden politics, non-accountability of management, promotion of the young, obedient inepts fertile to maniplulation and control - an overall unfair and toxic environment. HR personnel will follow this objective evaluation with a plethora of countless positive fictive evaluation, under the umbrella of annonimity.

    Advice to Management

    Disband your cliques and rebuild all management from ground up.

    Management structure changes significantly with turnover, each wanting to change things to put their spin on it. This practices leave employees wondering what will come next and hesitant to implement changes.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize management turnover, continue good communication flow down from corporate executives about direction and leadership goals.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good quality of life, interesting work, good people, collegial atmosphere

    Cons

    Funding for projects is very hard to come by, especially in the US, even when those projects are stated management priorities. It really feels like management thinks of the employees as liabilities rather than assets.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop nickel and diming your employees by cutting benefits every year!

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. But let the reader understand, it is a continuosly shrinking one.

    Cons

    Constant threat of layoffs and unpaid furloughs, no cost of living increases nor raises for a couple years running, poor benefits and getting worse, reduced 401K match, expensive insurance ($8000.00 annual deductible for a small family), outsourcing engineering & tech roles to India, micro management, low morale, nearly zero advancement opportunities (the best jobs are being eliminated), and yes there is much more... If there were glory days, they are long gone (unless you're a top dog, then you are laughing all the way to the bank).

    Advice to Management

    1. Management needs to stop the madness and learn what real leadership looks like. 2. They need to stop referring to themselves as leaders until they can prove themselves as such (hint: it's the morale, stup!d) 3. Don't kid yourselves, Honeywell is in retraction mode, trending down. Keep dumping your millions of dollars in stocks while they still have some value to them
