    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid big Company in many fields of en-devour they They have Reasonable benefits and salary along with plenty of opportunities for training and growth.

    Cons

    Almost too big, they are big and slow to change. along with that many of the decisions are made irrespective of logic. Thinking that they can offshore the work or just buy competitors and chop them up and distribute the pieces around the globe. Not always the best pieces just the ones that got there first. In short the company is a bully

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and leave time. Some training provided. Sometimes lunch provided at All Hands meetings.

    Cons

    Two times during my employment there I witnessed women who were very flirtatious rise up the ranks to high paying positions while the rest of us more qualified and educated persons are left in the dust. This location (Blount Island - Jacksonville, FL) is run by many retired military men. They don't seem to understand that these women are only flirting with them to get bonuses and raises and that the women never (repeat NEVER) will go out with them!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit promoting based on how much a woman flirts and charms you - she doesn't really mean it, she just wants more money and she's making a fool of you! You have more qualified and educated women working there who will do a much better job for you, if you'd run the place with your brain and not your johnson.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good, stable, work with not much worry of lay-offs. Decent amount of overtime (voluntary) depending on which department. Paid personal time off, holidays, vacation, life insurance, retirement plan.

    Cons

    Not high paying or great health benefits. Feel like just an employee ID number when working for a big-name company.

    I worked at Honeywell

    Pros

    Peers knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful

    Cons

    Medical benefits deteriorated (worked there seven years), no work-life balance, compensation below market, professional development lacking, focused on profit at employees' expense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked for a subsidiary that was bought by Honeywell. Employees at the subsidiary should receive the same benefits and compensation as corporate Honeywell employees. Work-life balance policies need to be established and enforced. (I worked an average of 80 hours/week during last two years of employment.) Professional development opportunities need to be improved. Training benefits were cut during the last two years of my employment, but we were still expected to complete 20 hours each year out of our own pocket.
