My company was acquired by Honeywell. They shut us down and laid off all the employees. Our products were good products before they acquired us, but they are managing them very poorly. Our employees were all hard working, extremely experienced, did a great job, and did everything Honeywell asked of us, but that counted for nothing. My coworkers are all very nice and hardworking. However, upper management seems to have no clue what the people who do the actual work really do. They are just worried about stock prices, head count, and their own salary. When they shut us down, they transferred all our work to other sites that were already completely busy, and did not have enough time or resources to take us on. Upper management also keeps thinking of various trainings and procedures such as LEAN, CMMI, 6-Sigma. These things sound good on paper, but they piled so much stuff and training us that we never had time to adequately use it, and ultimately just forgot it all. They also have way too many meetings, which cuts into productivity. There was never enough time or resources to do all the tasks that they were trying to mandate. Bottom line: If you are hired by Honeywell, get ready to experience all the negative aspects of working for a large company. If you are acquired, then have your resume ready. It may take several years, but you will probably need it.
Health care insurance was awful, NO job security no matter how good a job you do, never enough resources to get anything done, pay was below market rate and raises were meager

It must be on Indeed's system, Honeywell seemed to be default. The answer I made are indicative, |I have no knowledge about the company. I'm base in Calgary and willing to travel or relocate if need be.

Very large company with a lot of moving prats you gain Great industry Experience however for some reason which I could not put my finger on they are quicker to hire from outside rather than promote from within, This was pointed out to me by a number of colleague when I joined and after 5 years I had to leave to further my career

Good environment, supportive Manager, friendly colleagues and enjoyable work culture. I loved the job very much because of most of my duties related to Accounting such as payroll submission, billing, preparing budgets and credit and re-billing.
Electronics Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 27 July 2017
I found the managers at Honeywell were very helpful and would provide additional help when required. Believed in education and training. Projects were interesting and exciting. Given opportunities to grow and succeed. The Engineering Department was very process oriented with many design reviews.
Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 July 2017
I enjoyed my time here...loved my boss..only left because promotional opportunities were limited in Canada. Typical 8 hour workday except for month ends but strong co-operative culture when I was working there.
Very forward in technology and building system integration

They use you to make money , but dump you once the going gets though to safe money. They had a great benefit package, but they have taken most of it away. Only upper managment jobs are secured at honeywell, cause they only look after them selfs. Great place to learn a new skill, or get industry training, however dont get to comfy , as there is limited room for growing within the company.
Horrible management - all about cost cutting / salary freezes
