    Never a dull moment!

    Project Manager (Former Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsHoneywell has good focus on delivering services to satisfy client requirements. The work is challenging and interesting. Team members were fun to work with even in difficult client situations. Good work experience for college/university students.

    ConsProject delivery requires additional staff to deliver on commitments. Given tight deadlines it is difficult to acquire training before, during or after deployment.

    No longer a good company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsPay is good, but good luck getting a decent raise.

    ConsThe company is top heavy at the corporate level. At individual sites, they run with the minimum number of employees possible. Everybody wears multiple hats. Everything gets done in a mediocre way. Nothing gets done well because you are always in a rush to get to the next fire.

    Local management are yes men to the US corporate team. All sites are not held to the same standards. US locations can get away with more push back than Canadian sites, even when it comes to safety.

    All management (local and corporate) like to read out the rules, but fail to follow these same rules themselves.

    Management is not honest or ethical when it comes to reviews. You can refute what is said, but they say that once they have entered their reviews into the system they cannot be changed. They will not even put in addendums even when their is physical proof.

    HOS is a huge burden to small locations. There is minimal benefit to the site, but the costs are huge. It is all about "metrics" that time is spent on compiling, but are not used to better the location.

    CEO is too overpaid and not worth the cost.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company, but...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Markham, ON

    ProsGood friendly environment and nice people. I would say the pay/benefits were slightly above industry average. Overall nice company to work at

    ConsDoesn't spend enough money on QA, too much emphasis on project/sales and not enough on support. Because support doesn't generate the $$$ on the books, they rather do patch work style support and ask for $$$ everytime

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management uses recession as excuse to fire people. In one meeting they tell you how much the company is making, the next they tell you more people are being laidoff.

    Overworked and under paid

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork was challenging and learned lots as a first engineering job out of University. Mississauga Ontario site was nice and people were friendly.

    ConsCompany only care about the stockholders and don't give a damn about the actual employees that do the work. Pay is not competitive with other aerospace companies and definitely lower than other industries for engineers in Ontario. Raises and promotions are also slow and hard to come by. Company will hold you at as low a pay as they can until you threaten to leave. Health insurance benefit is crap, compared to other companies in Ontario. Car parking lacked security and thefts do occur in broad daylight.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany only do hockey and golf which is only enjoyed by upper management, totally weeds out majority of other employees interested in other extracurricular activities.

    OK company for engineers

    Design Engineer (Former Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsIt's less often to see head cuts compared to other companies. Employees have some chances to flow to different positions.

    ConsThe vertical and horizontal reporting structures are sometimes over-complicated. Business is driven by key person, not facts or subjective researches. A marketing, not engineering dominated culture. Career development is not easy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess business rhetoric. Be real and be relevant to the people who are supposed to make things happen.
