    Pros

    Honeywell is a big company, there is room for growth, it's a leader in the industry.

    Cons

    I have seen very bad managers that hinder employees from doing their best and making their lives very miserable for no valid reason whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Should take care of your employees.

    Pros

    They have decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    A company that is solely surviving on old momentum that will run out sooner or later.

    Advice to Management

    You customers are your bread and butter, so why treat them so poorly? Because you are abusing your unique position, i.e. your aerospace monopoly, everyone that deals with you wants out. It won't last forever.

    Pros

    Managers - Managers are mostly helpful, knowledgeable, supportive and will usually go to bat for you
    Co-workers - There are minimal politics within a department. Most people are constructive, supportive, knowledgeable and effective. Contractors and full-timers seem to get along, and everyone treats each other pretty fairly.
    Work-life balance - Culture is understanding of work-life balance. All engineers are provided with a personal laptop with remote connection capability (for working offsite).

    Cons

    Promotions - Promotions tend to be delayed even for very qualified, experienced engineers in team lead roles
    Training - Trainings are typically done online. Training content is usually drab, non-specific fluff with no engineering-specific technical content. No other training opportunities are available.
    Compensation - Salaries seem to be below market rate, but not ridiculously so. Benefits have deteriorated over the past few years and are no longer competitive (e.g. glasses are not included, paramedical services such as RMT have been reduced to a fraction of what they were).

    Advice to Management

    Negotiate for more competitive benefits
    Invest more in training or opportunities for personal growth for employees
    More pro-actively evaluate the readiness of experienced and proven employees for promotion

    Pros

    Good people. Interesting work if you can get a full-time roll in the area you desire

    Cons

    Sometimes you feel like just a number. Management doesn't have time for you. If you want to work hard, but your manager doesn't have enough time for you, you may need to find other areas in the company where you can contribute.

    Don't expect to get a raise or get paid well unless you find another opportunity and threaten to quit. They were willing to double my salary as I was leaving the company. That was one of the reasons I never looked back. I knew I would have to beg every time I wanted a raise. They would have held on to me if they had been pro-active about stating my value and giving me a raise.

    Some managers are very incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers, not all, need to devote more time to new employees who want to work hard and have meaningful work. I don't like being bored and waiting around for tasks. I ended up speaking to other employees and managers and finding work that I could do. That work was more useful and meaningful to the company. All this time my manager was nowhere in site. Also, when I asked for a better role, there wasn't one available, so I had to reach outside of my job description to feel like I contributed value. Of course I completed my primary job, that was always a priority, but I wanted more, and there was no structure around to support it.
