Too big to know what is going on

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee)
El Paso, TX (US)

I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 5 years

Prosbenefits are ok work is easy. You just have to play the game. Big boss spends his time avoiding the issues and drawing balls.

Conspoor leadership at lower levels, Group Leads, Upper management either doesn't or stupid. Thinks he is George Lopez during ball drawing

Advice to Senior Managementget in touch. CEO of the year. LOL

Good Work-Life balance

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

I worked at Honeywell full-time

ProsWorking from home is usually not a problem, but it will depend on who your manager is. Work times are flexible to a certain extent.
Ok benefits.
Very good communication between the different levels of the organization. But again, this also depends on your management.

ConsLow growth possibilities. You can have a lot of experience, doing a great job (according to your manager) and never get promoted. It also seems it is more difficult for women to get a promotion.
Not much vacation time, in my opinion.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep communicating to all employees as you currently do. A well informed employee will do a better job.
Keep allowing employees to work from home. More flexibility will drive your employees to give more to the company. It also creates a more healthy working environment.
Do not leave your performing employees on the bench. You end up loosing them. Yes, knowledge is replaceable but it costs money, and time.
Disliked very profoundly the fact that the CEO kept sharing his political views through his quarterly communications. All of us don't necessarily share these views.

Great start but not for the long haul.

Field Installation Specialist (Current Employee)
Cranston, RI (US)

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

ProsGreat product to work with. With the right management team behind you day to day tasks are easy. Fly away training to gain skill sets were good to get you up to speed on hardware and software.

ConsMerit raises are routinely cancelled due to economic conditions or partial furloughs implemented. Benefits have been reducing year over year to cut business costs but not beneficial to employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop canceling the merit raises and increasing the cost of benefits to the employee while reducing the actual benefit. We have to live just as much as you do and the cost of living keeps going up even though salaries and benefits do not.

No, I would not 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
