Good company, but...

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Markham, ON (Canada)

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

ProsGood friendly environment and nice people. I would say the pay/benefits were slightly above industry average. Overall nice company to work at

ConsDoesn't spend enough money on QA, too much emphasis on project/sales and not enough on support. Because support doesn't generate the $$$ on the books, they rather do patch work style support and ask for $$$ everytime

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management uses recession as excuse to fire people. In one meeting they tell you how much the company is making, the next they tell you more people are being laidoff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It is very focused on the current profit.

Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe commute for me is very short, so I do not need to fight traffic.
There a lot of work to be done , but the schedule is flexible.
And people in the office are quite relaxed and friendly.

ConsThe management is very focused on getting employees to pay more for health insurance, so we pay more each year.
The management is looking at the top and bottom lines only, so there is not much passion among the mid-level managers, and they rotate in and out various business divisions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

No longer a good company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPay is good, but good luck getting a decent raise.

ConsThe company is top heavy at the corporate level. At individual sites, they run with the minimum number of employees possible. Everybody wears multiple hats. Everything gets done in a mediocre way. Nothing gets done well because you are always in a rush to get to the next fire.

Local management are yes men to the US corporate team. All sites are not held to the same standards. US locations can get away with more push back than Canadian sites, even when it comes to safety.

All management (local and corporate) like to read out the rules, but fail to follow these same rules themselves.

Management is not honest or ethical when it comes to reviews. You can refute what is said, but they say that once they have entered their reviews into the system they cannot be changed. They will not even put in addendums even when their is physical proof.

HOS is a huge burden to small locations. There is minimal benefit to the site, but the costs are huge. It is all about "metrics" that time is spent on compiling, but are not used to better the location.

CEO is too overpaid and not worth the cost.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Mixed feelings...love job, hate benefits!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat coworkers and good stock price. Good 401k program. Making great strides in technology available to employees.

ConsHealth benefits are terrible!! Company switched to a high deductible plan a couple of years ago...that's ok. The problem is the premiums are still high and keep going up! I pay @450 a month and still have to pay 100% out of pocket until $3000 deductible met. Then I still have to pay 20% of everything after that!!

Advice to Senior ManagementIf going to keep high deductible insurance plan, need to reduce monthly premiums.

Great place to work

Human Resources Lead (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood learning & development opportunities. Great Go-To-Market strategy. Really like the people I worked with.

ConsVery little - sometimes the performance management process became the objective in itself. They sit on huge amounts of valuable people data but can't translate it into smart people actions.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget people are people, and remember most of your business is outside the US, so be culturally sensitive.
