    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great compensation. Very flexible on working with the balance between work and home life. Job security is there.

    Cons

    Union Environment really slows down the potential for great quality and production. Good'ol boy system. Often refer to the good ol days and still trying to live them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. If you want to use tools to see where your company is lacking, actually use them. Dont just try to appease the cooperate big wigs with a color code system. Get rid of the union. Quit draining money on a 3rd party entity that is nothing more than a financial drain

    Pros

    Opportunities are available globally and across the businesses.

    Cons

    Like all companies, this has changed. But employee (the "people" part our leadership boast about) care is diminishing. Benefits continuously being eroded, micromanagement of the business, cannot back fill and hire to meet understaffed needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the cons - really look at your people and treat them as the assets we are supposed to be. We are considered more as liabilities and anything to reduce to liability is done.

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Middle management is supportive and you'll likely meet life long friends. Pay and benefits are about average. Value innovation.

    Cons

    Like many companies, executives are commited to the outsource model. Some of network is heavily outdated and relies on legacy systems. There is limited opportunity to work from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop outsourcing all support services

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

    Pros

    Honeywell gives decent benefits for a large corporation. The company is a stable place to work long term. Global company and provides opportunity to move around the company easily. Work life balance is great. Most managers are good with flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Benefits are being reduced every year for the past 5 years. Honeywell is a technology company that prides in creating new technology. However, the technology it uses to build the new things are 20-30 years old, resulting in unnecessary burden on engineers. The company has become so large that it is now all about profit. Too many young and talented engineers have left in recent years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that work for you and actually live up the "People" initiative always being mentioned. Provide them a good work place environment. Stop cutting benefits every year. All the best people will leave and the company will be left with people who are just waiting for retirement. This company is headed back to the days of 1990s and early 2000s.

    Pros

    VERY FAST paced place to work, much variety and many many challenges, due to too obsession for acquisitions.

    Cons

    Too much departmental restructuring and outsourcing causing internal severe challenges. due to too obsession for acquisitions, overwhelming employees and systems. I appears due to all the layoffs they only want fresh new college blood and tend to boot out all experienced older ones to give their job offers to college interns. They Do not give bonuses to under mgmt levels and give far to low yearly wage merits no matter how hard you work for it. Top management get greatest pay and all of the incentives contrast to lower workers whether college degree or not, are given peanuts.

    Pros

    Personal growth is there if you push hard enough, promotions vary by department, benefits were once very good.

    Cons

    Lack of loyalty. Benefits have declined over the years but upper management gets rewarded bonuses for work that someone else is doing. Credit is not given where it need to be leaving low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You people are your assets not your product. Once this is realized morale will change as long as environment changes with it.
