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

    Pros

    Honeywell Aerospace is very concerned with employee safety, which they consider top priority. Pay, vacation and compensation time were very good, however I was "grandfathered" in when our site was purchased by Honeywell in 2011, so I am uncertain as to the introduction level for pay and benefits.

    The organization places emphasis on site accountability and continual communication among all skills levels with continual improvement expected within departments.

    Cons

    Although there were many good contacts within upper management, I also experienced several upper management individuals who seemed reluctant to make decisions which should have been within there area of responsibility. The threat of losing one's position at higher levels seemed to influence many senior managers to "pass the buck" which wasted time and irritated customers waiting for answers. There also seems to be a general attitude that Honeywell Aerospace treats customers according to the amount of the contracts. Even at our site, the experienced Honeywell managers often made decisions based upon how much money the customer was worth.

    The experienced employees at the site were also not thrilled when told, in January 2014, that the site would close and OEM would be transitioned to a site in Mexico. The corporate avarice for the highest possible public stock value has closed other sites Stateside over the last few years, so we were not surprised but very disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Aerospace leadership should look closely at, not only the performance of the managers, but also the feedback from subordinates. Some managerial positions such as Quality Assurance managers and Site managers are not provided with the resources to be present at the innumerable, lengthy conference calls and perform there jobs at a "hands on" level. Honeywell has a "cookie cutter" operating system which is good for larger sites, but crippling to smaller sites which are already have employees with too many tasks and are expected to take on more meetings and responsibilities.

    Pros

    Financial Performance is world class. They do allow a fair amount of empowerment to their employees.

    Cons

    Demanding work environment due to key areas that lack resources and adequate process. This is not recognized by Senior Management but very obvious to customers. 60-70 hrs a week continuously is common. Health insurance is also extremely high compared to the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers

    Learn how to develop a strategy and not a brigade of firefighters.

    I have been working at Honeywell

    Pros

    Good Work Schedule and good benefits

    Cons

    company seems disorganized since mergers. Mergers and no direction has left employees wondering about their status

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a clear company goal. Trust your employees here in the states and stop sending jobs overseas. You are not saving money because you are losing more customers than saving money.

    Pros

    In aerospace development division you can work on different interesting things. In such a large company you can find a terrible or perfect job. Everything depends on your team, role, manager, customers. Generally the environments was friendly, the company offers language courses. Opportunities for graduates to get some practice.

    Cons

    In Brno, Czech republic - not very good location, open space offices. Corporate systems, long approval workflows, boring trainings.

    Understaffed organization

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Average wag and salary scale

    Cons

    High-up front deductible health plans. Mammograms, yearly checkups, and prescriptions are not even covered!
    12-16 hour workdays for most staff with few weekends off.
    Hierarchical Organizational Structure that discourages open communication and band 2 or 3 involvement in the decision-making process.
    Severely understaffed in all areas causing multiple failures when staff vacation or are sick.
    Punishment based rather than incentive based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire staff based on customer need rather than obscure metrics gathered at the director level and above aimed to improve profit.
    Company morale is extremely low. High rate of employees seeing counselors, therapists, and on anti-depressants.
