    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large company with opportunity. Room to move around but not mecessarily upward. Decent benefits but trimming away at them every year.

    Cons

    They do not retain talent well. Management is getting caught up in making Honeywell comparative to other similar companies rather than exceeding them in employee benefits and compensation. 13 year employee with yearly raises no more than 2% average. Get your money coming into the company and dont make Honeywell your carrier. I have been making less net money every year for the past 5 years with pay freezes and increased cost in health benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees more than with cupcakes and cheap gadgets. Cost of living is skyrocketing and Honeywell doesn't care about that.

    I have been working at Honeywell (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is involved in many technologies and product so every engineer sees fruit of their efforts. It is a nice feeling to be involved with great products that help move industries forward and that accelerate the advancement and creation of knowledge.

    Cons

    The company keeps growing in many directions, but seemingly, no attention is given to compensation adjustments, competitive benefits, work environment improvements, e.g. equipment, areas, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and truly put employees first. Stop looking to make more money at the expense of compensations and treatment bordering on insulting towards good, hard working, people. Make sure they enjoy coming to work.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    The company is strong and I never worried about layoffs.

    Cons

    Honeywell is crippled by outdated policies, complex procedures and its hierarchical organization. You're thrown in to your job with no orientation or training and your career stays stagnant because there is little to no development or guidance. You only hear feedback when it's negative - you never get any positive reinforcement so you never feel like you're actually on the right track or doing a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your talent. Develop your employees. Give people a reason to stay.
