It's a fine place to work. Just "fine"

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's an ok place to work and I do like the people I work with. But getting anything done is kinda of painful. They are not very organized and access to resources to do your job efficiently is lack luster

Pros

Relaxed pace

Cons

Poor resource management

Bureaucracy and short sighted goals

I worked for a company that was acquired by Honeywell. When the transition team first came in they told us that we were acquired because of our high margins and efficient processes. In the next 2 years our processes were replaced by the Honeywell standards eroding the once high margins. Senior Management forcing the frontline managers to rate their employees as under preforming, regardless of actual performance. Managers actually told employees that it was your turn to be rated low and next year it will be some one else. This motivated many to leave. Six senior & mid level managers left at one time. Quarterly layoffs became a lottery with people competing for severance packages. A work force of 600 people is barely 200. Sadly We are not the only company that Honeywell has done this to.

Ambiente de trabajo demandante, estructuras funcionales centralizadas creando silos de trabajo

Ambiente de trabajo demandante, estructuras funcionales centralizadas creando silos de trabajo. Demasiados jefes. Sistemas establecidos pero manejados a discrecion. Aprendi que debes explicar las cosas varias veces y escalar desvios a la primera, lo mas dificil es lidiar con departamentos de soporte, no por sus miembros sino por los procesos establecidos, muy burocraticos.

Management very disconnected from staff and have blinkered visions

Don't get me wrong, there are people who have worked here for over 20 years doing the same monotonous task day in day out with no career progression or desire to progress, and if that is your choice then great....But if you are a climber not a flat liner, then Honeywell is probably not for you.There is absolutely no chance of you moving up the corporate chain unless you have read the big book of corporate bull inside and out.... the leadership team as they are called spend so much time looking at ways of stopping things from happening that nothing new actually happens. The work itself is messy and often done without the full level of tools required. There is a heavy expectation of overtime, at least 20% every week.

Pros

Flexible

Cons

Boring, overtime expected, bad pay, no career progress

Not a good place to work

Bad management and no support from HR at the Location I worked. It is a toxic environment and when I filed a complaint with HR nothing was done. Contractors working at this site also complained and then HR was trying to find out who it was to get them fired instead of fixing the real problem

Fast pace and stressful

It's a very stressful place to work, lots of overtime, no many opportunities for advancement. Many of the management positions are for USA employees as promotions.

Pros

Free pizza lunches

Cons

Low pay

It was my dream job but Honeywell turned it into a nightmare

Just like I said, dream job but nightmare employer. Maybe other Honeywell locations are different but I don't know. My experience was always a little bumpy due to budget issues.

Pros

It's a job. Good money for my area and trade. Professional atmosphere

Cons

On call 24/7 for 2 years strait despite letters to HR and management. They didn't care

Intern

Lots of training available if you're willing to learn and you're a full-time employee. During your internship, you'll be treated as cheap labour and senior staff aren't willing to teach you more than you need to know to get the tasks done. They mostly look for Technicians so if you have an Engineering degree you may not be able to land a job with them after graduation.

Pros

Free meals, flexible hours

Cons

Not enough training provided, low pay, unskilled work

Sinking ship

Local team is great unfortunately not many people still around. Managers are out of province and care little about their employees and even less for their customers. Used to be good until restructured a few years back.I suspect this branch will be closed in the near future

Cons

Managers do not care about anyone out of province. Treated like a number not a person .

Poor management, no work life balance, company doesn’t care about staff.

I don’t recommend this company, as no work life balance, company doesn’t care about staff. They blame staff for their own mistakes and you can’t take time off from May to September to time with family.

Pros

Staff

Cons

Management

Good company to work for

Good company to work for. I worked for Honeywell for 33+ years. I enjoyed my time there and I enjoyed the people I worked with. I worked in the business and corporate. Benefits could be a bit better, but they’re not bad. The managers I had all cared about the people who work for them.

Pros

Good people, working hard

Cons

Benefits and pay could be better, male oriented culture

Top heavy with management

Top heavy with management - people who love to use acronyms and buzzwords to appear knowledgeable and are generally clueless only looking to springboard to their next position . Rarely will you see a manager in place for longer than 2 - 3 years. Management does not actually make any decisions but are strictly guided by a group of pseudo excellence experts without real world experience. lots of intelligent hardworking people low in the chain of command are the key to any successes

Pros

parking

Cons

management
