Working At Honeywell

People, opportunity, challenges and performance. The Future is What We Make it We Define our World Honeywell is globally recognized as a culture that balances accountability and results with a high value on its people.

How employees describe working at Honeywell

This company has a severely toxic work culture. Micromanagement, belittling, demeaning comments are commonplace. Although there is an unlimited vacation policy the managers frown upon taking even spring break off. The company restructures every 6 months.

Short sighted, no customer focus

Work life balance is an issue, manager partialities no captures. HR Function need to improve

Good company but bot sure for freshers

Great prior to pandemic. Then they let go senior talent significantly impacting all business areas

Q&A With Honeywell Employees

Asked to all employees at Honeywell

  • Top Employee Response

    Too many good employees in the US let go and replaced by inexperienced overseas employees.

  • Quit making money off the employees and find other ways to increase profits

  • Too many meetings but never given any feedback when you ask questions. Very indecisive. Changing procedures too much and too fast

    Nothing to do but improve. Brutal honesty about rif'ing people just so execs can keep bonuses and buy a Porsche while saying they appreciate us and understand our struggles while laying off with reckless abandon. Doing everything to cut costs with taking away resources that help us work efficiently and demanding HIGHER results with less people. I would rather work in hell.

  • Start by remembering that our most important asset are our people.

  • I would remove troublemakers and liars. Remove the CI program Remove the Conditions and Behaviors

    They makes me feel like I'm just a number. And the leadership will not help you to grow in the company. There is no leadership.

  • To be paid equal to my peers for the level of experience and years of service. Better health Insurance Plan...

  • Years without raises, raise rates less than inflation. Poor health insurance for the cost.

    When at work, you'll worry about getting laid off. When you're at home, you'll worry about being laid off. Overtime or no overtime makes no difference. You'll always wonder if you'll be there tomorrow, and you'll always know that no one has your back. Maybe 1 or two of your coworkers will if you are a friendly sort. But passing the buck happens at the employee level even though most people who work here are genuinely good people, but I can't say I blame them for their self preserving nature. It is necessary due to piss poor leadership.

  • Lopsided. Expectation of availability even on planned vacations

  • Uneven. 60 hour work weeks standard. Intrusion of work into personal time. Not unlikely to get requests while on vacation

    Honeywell recently rescinded (1+ years ago) all work from home, due to a directive from the old CEO. Also, all employees who had arrangements to come into the office for several days a week and WFH the rest of the days due to living far from the office had their arrangements rescinded and were required to come into the office all 5 days/week. I believe this policy is still in effect currently, so no recurring WFH is granted whatsoever. WFH is only allowable on an infrequent basis if your managers and group advocate for you, and you have to notify your manager and HR each time. They track whether you are working from home by your work computer IP address, and follow up if you violate the policy. A lot of people quit the company based on this change. Personally I think it's very backward and was a stupid move for the company to make, even though I didn't even use WFH very often. It was really nice to have that option, but sadly we don't anymore.

  • Until forced to allow it with coronavirus it was non-existant and they can’t sit to push everyone back into the buildings again whether or not you need to be physically on premises

  • They actually have a pretty decent one.

    That's a good question. Fewer and fewer each year. Good luck getting a raise. Good luck getting vacation approved for more than a day or two at a time. Forget about ever getting to see or do anything outside of work while consistently worrying about staying employed there.

  • Barely any

  • The health insurance doesn't cover preventative treatments like acupuncture for arthritis. I would like to see a reduced rate for Tai Chi, Water Aerobics, YMCA, Health Clubs. No coverage for procedures like Regenexx (stem cells, blood Plasma injections to relieve pain in arthritic joints & help regrow cartilage). I would like to see a reduced rate for non-smokers & non-drinkers. out of pocket deductible is WAY TOO HIGH! I want to be Able to go to my local pharmacy for my prescriptions. It is UNFAIR to charge (penalize) me more money to go to a local pharmacy. I have a high cost for one medication and its almost impossible for me to pay for 3 months at a time with such a high deductible ($1500.00 for 3 months!) Who has that kind of money ?

  • Listen to your people and listen to your customers which is something that management doesn't do.

    What kind of pressure cooker Honeywell is.

  • They are intimidators', do not value employees.

  • That everything you believe like he’d work, ethics, teamwork and helping, putting in extra effort and hours means nothing. If you are still employed soak it for the time the company has left with its head above water. Keep looking for other work.

    It's both good and bad.... they want you to take vacation and compel you to plan your days off in one of the HR systems. That's all fine, but the realities of the job often keep you from going on vacation. The systems is not very friendly.

  • 2 wks to start. Good luck being able to take a week off though. Let alone using both weeks to have a decent getaway with the family. Just won't happen. And if you've been here 25+ years and get your 6wks vacation, you may have trouble being able to even use it all. And that isn't because these workers who have the 6 weeks love their work so much they don't want to take it.

  • Adequate to market

    All he cares about is Shareholders and nothing about employees

  • Nobody ever speaks of the CEO We could improve on treating people with respect

  • He is over paid, believes in leveraging existing assets vs. reinvesting in the future. North america is a burden and everything should be produced in so called "growth regions"

    It's tough when they monitor your social media. They also tell you that you can't make certain purchases

  • Very. They monitor your facebook. They tell you that you can't do certain things outside of work

  • Its difficult when you get your shift changed because they wont spend the money to buy new and RELIABLE CNC machines that work. I have many activities planned in the evenings that I cannot attend now. I have already paid money in advance for these activities and have lost money and time/experience in the activities

    somewhat difficult as procedures change so fast that you cant keep up with the changes. change is good but to make seemingly random changes in procedures that aren't broken? INSANITY!! its no wonder so many people new people quit after only a few weeks

  • Yes. Too many changes in procedures. Most of them are not documented. No lradership

  • Somewhat difficult. Nothing is "Standardized" like it's supposed to be.

    Supposed to be yearly. But they have not always given yearly raises 1% - 2% . Raises are horrible

  • Not often enough. I was told there would be yearly raises based on performance, but Honeywell has not lived up to that promise

  • They don't. I was rated at the top of my department the entire time I was there and was lucky to see 1% if anything
