Good development experience/resume builder, not for the long haul

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO (US)

I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHoneywell (specifically FM&T in Kansas City, MO) has been a great development opportunity. Due to high turnover, they generally give early career engineers more responsibilities than industry average. After a few years as a solid performer you should have some pretty good experience for the resume.

Corporate Honeywell brings both positives and negatives to the table, with an end result of a neutral. Functionally, it's a great company with a strong stock. However, the employee policies are generally pretty terrible and the benefits are average.

ConsThere is basically no long term option. At best, as a top 20% performer, you can grow your career like the average employee outside. If you are in the middle 70%, you can basically forget getting raises higher than inflation. As a government contractor, they are constantly compressing salaries to be competitive for renewing the contract. The bottom 10% get reviewed yearly and put on a plan with which 50% are let go. I've been told the general breakdown is consistent across Honeywell (and other companies like GE), but our raises are significantly lower.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of stinkers in your 1st/2nd level management faster. There are people who have been in 1st and 2nd level positions for years that have not developed their groups at all. Generally, upper level management at this facility is excellent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fast paced environment that will test you daily

Integrated Supply Chain Supervisor (Former Employee)
Anniston, AL (US)

I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than a year

ProsFellow supervisors and hourly employees care greatly about what they do and where the company is going

ConsDivide between Leadership Team and Supervisor Team at my location while I was there. Lack of trust flowing both ways.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen it comes to HOS listen to the employees. They do the job every day. Saw instances of Team meetings only as a formality and Leadership Team doing what they wanted without following back with original team members.
