    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice facility, opportunity to work with people locally and internationally.

    Cons

    The company claims that it is a progressive one offering good benefits, competitive pay, training opportunities and career growth. Over the 6 years I worked there, the company said it couldn't afford to pay our earned merit increases for 3 of those years while the CEO received his, and compensation fell well below industry standards. Benefits only became more expensive each year, although they did contribute funds to your HSA to help. My management would not pay for the training opportunities that were available to me because they believed their current practices were satisfactory - innovation and risk taking were discouraged and you would get a slap on the hand if you made recommendations to senior management. Finally, unless you worked in Finance, management and HR were not interested in career planning or development. I watched dozens of talented college graduates leave the company over my 6 years there to work for a different company that was actually invested in their employees and developing talent for long-term growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're missing out on hard working, young talent. If you don't create a career development plan for college graduates, you will continue to lose them to competitors who will actually help them grow in their careers.

    Pros

    Very large company with a lot of world wide influence. Salaries are generally good.

    Cons

    In general people are not treated very well. Benefits, specifically insurance, for a company this size are not good. Very large turnover rate a the facility I worked at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your people, you say they are your most valuable asset yet you treat them as second class citizens. Your turnover rate should give a clue that you have a problem

    Pros

    Good pay and challenging work...the brands are exceptional and strategic acquisitions always seem to be winners and enhance the bottom line.

    Cons

    Benefits are becoming a bad joke and there is no such thing as work life balance. Upper management in IT has become the mutual admiration society (they all love each other but not the actual workers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They completely fear making a decision...time to put the big boy pants on (ladies too) and make a decision and live with the results good or bad.
