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

    Pros

    Pay seems to be on par with the market. Good people to work with. Interesting projects.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance career. Business units seems to be "siloed." A couple of managers admitted to be that the best way to advance your career at Honeywell is to gain experience with another company then come back at a higher level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break down the silos. Encourage employee advancement and employee learning opportunities.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Challenging work and good people as an individuals.

    Cons

    Oro Valley location lacks leadership / proactive management, declining corporate presence, and advancement is limited unless you are willing to pay out of your pocket to relocate to the greater Phoenix area etc. Cultural is in print not practiced in reality / not healthy equating to employee's compromising their humanity either willfully &/or unconsciously, in part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Skip level reviews, get around to listen to employees, conduct quarterly town halls, measure your management on soft skills specifically integrity / hold HR accountable. Did & do not understand sustained program failures - missing schedules / costs over year-over-year. CFO greater role in execution? Given Customers were not happy, why the sustained failures? Change of middle management is one possible course of action.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Salary and benefits seem fair for office personnel.

    Cons

    In the name of running "lean" you are expected to do the work of 3 or 4 people. Work to life balance is not good. They also change employee schedules at the drop of a hat, without any consideration for the employee. Health insurance deductibles are ridiculous for a company that size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe consider adopting some of the core values of the old company. If you would just take care of your employees, they will take care of you. You are so focused on profit, that nothing or nobody else matters.

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

    Pros

    Provides a place to learn functional tasks

    Cons

    No internal advancement opportunities, spending freezes are the norm, as are hiring freezes. They do not seem interested in recruiting or attracting top talent. Benefits continue to get worse. A year ago I probably would have given a 3 star rating - next year I'll probably give a 1 star rating based on the direction we are headed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you say "Our People are what make us special", prove it! Provide opportunities for advancement, improve benefits, focus on the customer! Not Engineering metrics and goals! We/you are doing yourself in with all the internal red tape.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, relatively stable workforce. Good team spirit below upper management levels.

    Cons

    Mediocre benefits, especially healthcare. Leadership often not held accountable and most are very, very directive in style and "old school," leading to unfair treatment of middle managers. Actively raises funds for their Political Action Committee through work emails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what values are alive in your team, several levels down. Make direct contact with them and watch for resulting behaviors and business results. Hold them and yourself accountable to pull the most and best out of each team member. Be bold and not afraid of forward-thinking.
