    Pros

    Company makes money so it can provide a steady work enviroment, with low lay off rate, no over time. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    The management focuses on profit, not people. It makes good money but always tries to cut back spending on employees. Benifit is very limited. Low level employees don't have incentive bonus, nor discounted stock purchase plan, and pay more and mor eon health insurance every year. No raise for a few yeas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they care about advices.

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

    Pros

    Flex time, decent salary, good retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of layers to getting things done. No stateside employment growth. Good people are leaving. Much more interest in making profit by cuts than by innovation and growth. Absolutely horrible health insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that when good people leave, they take their experience and skills with them, and many of them are rarely overlapped due to how lean this place runs. The time to act to keep your employees is BEFORE they start looking and get another offer, because once that happens it's too late.

    Pros

    Great pay for the area in which I live, great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Ended a contract ( 1 Year) while 10,000 miles away living on a ship in the middle of no where only to apply for the same job on shore to be told I did not have the training to be employed again. This is and still is a shock to me for I even received accolades in the form of a Letter of Achievement from their customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the shady hiring practices

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

    Pros

    A lot of tools and training for management and leadership if you actively manage your career. High work-life flexibility that leverages technology to allow telecommuting.

    Cons

    Self-insurance of benefits package drives a sub-par health plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please realize that the engineering field is hot and that you are competing with a lot of really good companies for talent. Also, pay attention to actual cost comparisons when you look at talent in Developed versus Emerging regions. Sometimes the effort to offshore defeats the purpose of cost reduction.

    I worked at Honeywell as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting, cutting-edge technology integration. Benefits to Direct employees were most generous.

    Cons

    I worked for this company as both a Direct and Contract employee. In both cases, I was laid off in a mass downsizing. There was no effort on their part to find an adequate reassignment, although I was an established, recogized producer. As a contractor, I was told I could only continue on in my position if I accepted a 15% pay cut. I accepted the cut but was still laid off without warning 4 months later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with outside resource hiring agencies to assure that Contractor benefits match Direct employee benefits.
