Worked at HON for many years and initially it was good but after great recession a lot of the earnings growth have come at the expense of EE benefits / furloughs and the like. That said the company has become very good at "making the numbers".

For most companies, layoffs are a last resort. Not for this company. It's a tool. Whenever there's a blip in the market, layoffs come automatically. The US employees are usually the one's that get laid off, not Euro or APAC. I know that there's no such thing as job security these days, but of all the companies I worked for in the past, they never laid off Employees this frequently and easily. They layoff people when times are bad, they layoff people when times are good.Recent media coverage of the President going to the AZ facility said how this company was hiring 1000 people for the PPE lines. What they didn't say where the 1,000's they laid off right after. New CEO tends to keep these things secret, unlike the previous CEO. Severance package is lousy. Probably because layoffs are a financial tool, not a last resort decision.
Pros
Co-workers
Cons
Benefits getting worse. Long hours. Below average/bad severance package

Terrible culture, dog eat dog management style. Honeywell is ruthless. Look at HR. About 6 HR managers in the last 4 years. Best one they promoted then corporate ate him alive. If they treat managers like this think about the peons. Its a joke, if you value your self esteem and work/life balance then run away hard and fast. If you want to play roulette with career and always watch your back, come here.

Two thumbs down for management, company and work security. Benefits are the worst, pay is well under the national average, they treat you like a skave

At the plant level the culture is making a shift to self reward and accomplishment after years of being brow beaten into being told what to do. However, that is not my issue. The frustration is the matrix organization that is intended to create collaboration and alignment but it does just the opposite. Functions (HR, Sales, Finance, Ops, etc) are very siloed with competing objectives that creates groups to do stupid things just to make a number that has no purpose. It is too bad, because at the plant level there are incredibly talented people with a voice that needs to be heard. When you go up a couple of levels in the organization, that all stops and you just become a path to make a number that makes them look good. I understand metrics better than anyone, but Honeywell has a culture of "you better make that number and I don't care how you do it". Lastly, the benefits are embarrassingly poor. I took the job knowing the cost but I expected the service to be top notch for the price, not the case.
Pros
People, culture, interesting and challenging work
Cons
Bureaucracy, beholden to a pointless metric vs a true vision, benefits embarrassingly poor

The challenging part was long hours due to demand on the team vs available resources. The rewarding part was learning new technologies and executing in manufacturing. Job security is almost at zero based on multiple layoffs
Pros
New technologies
Cons
Long hours

Honeywell is an excellent company to be employed with. They provide ongoing training and opportunities for advancement. The environment was overseas in Afghanistan which created many opportunities to exhibit my skills.

Great product and industry(s) to work in, however, company is only focused on stock price. Benefits are fair but being taken away at every opportunity. Expectation is that salary folks work 20% overtime, if not, "you do not have the right work ethic" and your reviews will show it. Management looks out for themselves, not what is the right for the business. Employees are extremely frustrated and stressed. No vision of maintaining technical acumen within company. Boasts that Employee's are their greatest asset however do not walk the talk. Ethics may be an issue at Leadership and HR levels.
Pros
Product you get to work with
Cons
Overall management & leadership of the company

This was once a great company but not any longer. It’s probably the next GE based on the direction the leadership is taking. The only focus is eliminating jobs in the US and outsourcing to low cost countries while spinning it as shareholder value.
Pros
None now
Cons

Honeywell continues to try to force employees to fit in to a singular box, not understanding that some employees will never fit. The elimination of the ability to work from home has destroyed employee morale as well as made a majority of employees less productive.

There is a culture of stretching goals that causes a lot of stress throughout the workforce but ultimately has allowed the company to continue to grow.


The health insurance "benefits" are laughable. High deductible plan with a requirement to do a yearly health assessment where employees are penalized based on results.

When I interviewed for the position they offered me to bring me on as a permanent employee, I had concerns about the level of uncertainty I felt about the future of the specific sales office I would be working at. This location was an acquisition and even after 6 years, there wasn't a full integration of the supposed company policies and processes - mostly because of the lack of corporate training and support in the assimilation of this site. I was assured by the hiring manager that things were smoothing out and I should be patient for a revitalization of this business.
After almost 5 years, I have come to realize that no one at the corporate level even cares to learn about and provide support for the challenges faced by this location. On top of that, layoffs and firings of personnel whose positions are not filled leaves an impossible workload on those left. The only thing that matters is bringing in the monthly target numbers, which are continually not met due to inadequate engineering/office personnel to support the execution of the orders, which are technical in nature. It is like the site is being set up to fail, which is disheartening.

The constant revolving door of corporate Executive leadership is mind-numbing. Every week there is a new organizational announcement of someone leaving to "seek new opportunities" or just as often, left the company for another job - some new corporate leaders have even left after four months!

There is very little training for new employees - and it is a struggle to find information as it is person dependent..

I do like

Pros
Unlimited PTO but amount iof time off is at your manager's discretion (?)
Cons
Health Insurance - $8K yearly dedutible. No corporate training, processes support.

My manager thought he main job was to push people to excel. He did not care about the people. He did not care about anything except the plant. Home life was a distraction to getting a job done. Possible the worse manager that I have ever had. I would recommend staying away from them at all costs.
Pros
Good pay. Other that the corporate personel. The people at the facility were great
Cons
No concern for personal lives of employees. Every person was expendable

Honeywell is a very professional company. Pay is good, with some advancement opportunities. The culture can be competitive and political. You need to have an advocate at higher levels. The company fluctuates with the economy and layoffs are likely with an economic downturn.
Pros
Good employer for engineers.
Cons
Culture is political at higher levels.
