    Process oriented company that has lost its way!

    Sales Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsLarge, safe, stable, innovative and have offices in most large cities. Global reach

    ConsLack of respect for the individual. Very little upside. Worst HR in North America.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHoneywell has excellent systems in place but not followed. Of course everyone does the mandatory training but for get the basic principle of respect for the individual. I have never worked in a company where there has been zero loyalty to the employer. Benefits are poor. All the emphasis seems to be on cash flow and stock price. Short sighted, ego-driven executive managers.

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

    Low morale, big corporate machine.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood training programs, intelligent team members.

    ConsPoor health insurance, lack of stable leadership. Extremely bureaucratic so it takes forever to get projects through. Way too much "corporate mentality." Employees are not treated as valued and compensation is lower than average compared to other industries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to employees and make them feel like their opinion has weight. Too many bad ideas get promoted when employees who have been in the business a long time tell management the ideas are a mistake!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Advice to Senior Managementadvice to highest management:
    -If you need globalize and grow in "cheaper countries" don't ever let people be Servants of Two Masters. It really doesn't work effectively.
