Stressful 90% of the time but could be dealt with.
Mechanic and Lead Turbine Engine Test Technician (Former Employee) – Greer, SC – February 3, 2017
Started off as a great place to work and throughout the years seemed to get worse and worse. Benefits are nothing to brag about anymore for sure. Insurance, Pensions, 401K's hit hard. Furloughs and layoffs many times here lately. I loved what I done as a job not so much the people I worked for at times.
Honeywell is a very demanding environment however with that comes tremendous potential for career advancement. There is a high level of accountability and a culture that expects commitments to be accomplished. If you thrive in a say-do culture, there are endless opportunities for career advancement .
Senior Level 4 SOFTWARE ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – January 28, 2017
I strive to make what we are doing better. This includes actively seeking better ways to develop, test, integrate or field our product. I have developed products extensively in C and Java and a little in C++/C#. My forte is to figure ways to break the product and or processes (Testing) , then offer constructive ways to fix them.
In the beginning, everything is smooth going. You'll do training, talk about your goals, discuss what your manager envisions for you, but quite honestly, it never works out. Honeywell will sell you the dream of a better project, better work environment, better raises, flexible work schedule etc. They never follow through on them though. Most of the work is being done in India. All you do is sit in front of the customer and basically double check the work done over seas. Also expect to travel a lot. Honeywell will place you where the money is regardless of your situation. I have not been on one project where I did not have conflict with my coworkers. From what I can tell, all of the good engineers make contacts with the end users and go work for them, leaving Honeywell with a pool of problem employees. This makes it tough for new engineers to stay with the company because of the poor morale.
Networking with end users, Projects in different industries
Problem management and coworkers, Engineering done outside of US, Nobody listens to your input

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 26, 2017
Had a hard time managing their identity during the various acquisitions that occurred while I was working there. They were more concerned with preserving management than they were taking care of the rank and file.
Fast paced manufacturing environment Fun, friendly coworkers in a team driven environment that focuses on Safety, Delivery, Quality mainly. Management is open to ideas for Continuous Improvement. These ideas are encouraged and documented. Best ideas are taken and implemented, then recognition by management is given.
company makes an effort to make people feel part of a family

Quality Analyst II (Current Employee) – Clearwater, FL – January 26, 2017
I am contract but trying to get permanent is impossible. Its fast pace and I learn something everyday. The culture is good. the hardest part is being in production but its the most exciting. I love what I do and I do a great job. People recognize that here but its unfortunate that I wont be made permanent because there just isn't a budget to support me.
