Leadership is completely disconnected and lacks understanding of manufacturing. Two-way communication between leadership and lower groups non-existent.
Support from Management
Lower management does their best to support the employees. Upper leadership does nothing to communicate clear goals and does not involve employees in any decision making.
I've found it difficult to get people to work as a cohesive team until really pressed to do so.
Level of Autonomy
Yes, I am trusted to complete work without close supervision.
Information to perform job functions happen as a result of personal involvement in the work.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Honeywell has attempted to push older employees out through early retirement to lower its operating costs.
The company provides no plans for career development. Uses the GE performance plan and forces someone to be ranked low and on the cusp of dismissal.
Overall Compensation for your work
Company has not given performance increases in three of the last five years. Has recently used furloughs to reach shareholder's expectations.
Work environment is acceptable. Technology is not readily available, and every request must be approved at the VP level.
Honeywell will work you 24/7 if they could get away with it. It is up to the employee to fight to maintain work-life balance.
Proud to work for Honeywell? No. Leadership lacks understanding of the business and continues to roll out programs that provide more bureaucracy.
With no pay raises, three layoffs, and furloughs over the past few years, no one is really stable.
Work is challenging. Mostly due to having to work through bureaucracy.
Suggestions for improvement
- Get rid of upper leadership and start over with manufacturing and engineering, (not business) professionals.
What I like about the company
Flexible working hours.
What I dislike about the company
Their treatment of their employees. Continued reduction in benefits.
