K Intern

K Intern (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I worked at Honeywell as an intern for less than a year

ProsThey put a lot of time and effort into training interns. Additionally, the intention is to hire the intern on as a full time employee after the internship. This cannot be said for all companies and is appreciated.

ConsThere was insufficient structure for most interns throughout the summer. There was a lot of talent and skill that went un/underutilized.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider more structured internships.

Felt like Pluto, we weren't even a planet anymore!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSince I worked with nobody at my location it was easy to work from home. Very good, mature infrastructure for virtual work. The facility and area are very nice.

ConsIf you're not in Phoenix, you don't exist. Worked the same system for 7 years, re-doing each year as leadership and mood changed. The vast time zones made for some interesting work hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementStick with something long enough for it to get used and improved.

Large Fortune 500 company with good benifits.

Aerospace Mechanic (Current Employee)
Kingman, AZ (US)

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

ProsI worked in the aerospace sector and the work was consistent. Excellent matching 401K plan with full access.

ConsWorked in hot building in the desert. You were not a person, just a number. Micromanaged and forced to work overtime year round. No human resources and very little opportunity to move up in the company.

Advice to Senior Management15 years of loyalty should have meant something......

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. If you company is targeted for acquisition....RUN!

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)

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

Pros401K program is good. Vacation time is good

ConsProcess, process, process. That good 401K plan still is not back up to full match since it was cut during the recession. I am always so busy that I do not fully enjoy my vacation time worrying about the things I need to be doing at work. So much for the pros.

Our CEO goes on media outlets talking about how the US needs more engineers, but the mandate is no new hires in the US. Hypocrite. Our site is asked to grow by rather large amounts each year. We are doing it, but no additional help. The production workers have been working unsustainable amounts of overtime for far too long. Everyone you bump into (including myself) looks like the company has broken them.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop adding new layers to upper management, cut the process overhead and let your people come to work and do the good job that they want to do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Stable, slow-paced work; stagnating environment.

Software Engineer I (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

ProsHoneywell Aerospace is a large company, so it offers plenty of room to grow. In addition, the job is fairly stable. The environment is not nearly as stressful as many of the other aerospace companies.

ConsHoneywell Aerospace does not have a very dynamic, innovative environment. It is a very typical, boring office environment. The workforce seems to be older and graying, and a lot of the work is being outsourced to India.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on improving the workplace, and attracting talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
