    Pros

    VERY FAST paced place to work, much variety and many many challenges, due to too obsession for acquisitions.

    Cons

    Too much departmental restructuring and outsourcing causing internal severe challenges. due to too obsession for acquisitions, overwhelming employees and systems. I appears due to all the layoffs they only want fresh new college blood and tend to boot out all experienced older ones to give their job offers to college interns. They Do not give bonuses to under mgmt levels and give far to low yearly wage merits no matter how hard you work for it. Top management get greatest pay and all of the incentives contrast to lower workers whether college degree or not, are given peanuts.

    Pros

    The Benefits are good and we have many discounts available. The Flexible schedule is a great bonus but making us jump through hoops to use it, not so much!

    Cons

    The Good ole boy system is alive and well at the top and Advancement to management level is non existent. Supervisors are too busy attending meetings to actually know what's going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your experts, the employees.

    Pros

    The opportunities to advance your professional knowledge are endless.
    Contingent on your manager, you will soon become respected in your field.

    Cons

    Almost all ways to advance are contingent on your manager.
    Pay and benefits are mediocre, with benefits especially, being meager for such a large corporation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make career advancement paths more transparent

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Diverse business functions and focus on generating innovations. Opportunities for lateral movement within the organization. Effective systems and processes in place like SAP and HOS (Honeywell Operating System). Good culture and values.

    Cons

    Most of the employee friendly benefits have been reduced to cut down on costs like team out bounds. Professional training and certifications are very limited and most employees are expected to learn at job. Promotions and vertical growth are very limited. HR function is not independent and hence does not have a good strategy towards achieving employee satisfaction. Appraisal system is not effective as it has lot of subjectivity and lack of transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many strategies get deployed in short span some even without much thought leading to their failure. Need to invest for a robust HR and training department to ensure employee satisfaction and development.

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

    Pros

    There are good people in the organization but maybe not for long as Sr. Leadership seems bent on chasing them away. Pay is good but you sell your soul for it in ACS. Aerospace and PMT are the better SBGs to align with, will be running from ACS to one of those SBGs as soon as possible.

    Cons

    Sr. Leadership does not want to hear bad news or poor project status updates, resulting in unrealistic expectations, timelines and objectives. Very poor work / life balance, 70 hour weeks the norm lately. Integrity and ethics are not valued by Sr. Leadership. Very political environment with too many ineffective Leaders taking credit for other's work and ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Accept the bad news with the good and stop trying to hide it with "Stretch Goals" to satisfy Corporate.
    2. Realize that Lean (HOS) is a culture that takes time to develop and does not equate to immediate elimination of resources.
    3. Morristown should take a hard look at ACS leadership, especially Safety SBU, they are on a course to implode and impact the rest of HON.
    4. Practice what you preach - People ARE your most valuable asset, stop riding them until they drop, or leave, and have Sr. Leadership adhere to and practice HON's 12 core Behaviors.
    5. Outsource your HR, they are terrible.
