    Working for Honeywell

    Field Service Technician (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsThe team I work with are good team players and look after each other

    Conswages are low and are not consistent with people doing the same job but with a 8 to 9000 defence
    They do not value long term service.
    If you leave and come back you get more money for doing the same job as before.
    Honeywell want sos reporting swq's and paperwork as long as you can do the paperwork you don't have to know the job. you will be ok.
    Work /home balance is not good for engineers. The pay is not good and to make up what you need to live on. You have to work evenings and weekends just to make ends meat . The 9 block is not worth the paper its printed on max pay rise is 4% but you will not get this.
    1.75% for the 1st time in 4 years. Only one person in any one team can get a 1 on the 9 block.
    All in all honeywell is a good place to work if you don't want holidays Ect

    Advice to Senior ManagementHoneywell need to realise that they are losing good engineers to other company's as they pay more.
    And honeywell need to realise the work we do out on call over time keeping customers happy.
    After all its use the workers in the field that keep the company going.
    So we should not be at the bottom of the food chain.
