    Former Employee - Tech Lead in Bangalore

    I worked at Honeywell full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good work life balance
    - Job stability
    - Good place to work for short term and see if you "land" up with right people who are open minded !

    Cons

    - Bureaucracy in different levels
    - Mid-level management does not promote talent and is insecure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - The encouragement can be done by somehow removing the bureaucracy and giving freedom to people to innovate
    - The growth of people could be "performance" based in its true sense
    - Some people are just wasting there time and dont even allow others to contribute or do good... it could help the company if the value addition can be measured at each level and opportunities given accordingly

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diverse business functions and focus on generating innovations. Opportunities for lateral movement within the organization. Effective systems and processes in place like SAP and HOS (Honeywell Operating System). Good culture and values.

    Cons

    Most of the employee friendly benefits have been reduced to cut down on costs like team out bounds. Professional training and certifications are very limited and most employees are expected to learn at job. Promotions and vertical growth are very limited. HR function is not independent and hence does not have a good strategy towards achieving employee satisfaction. Appraisal system is not effective as it has lot of subjectivity and lack of transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many strategies get deployed in short span some even without much thought leading to their failure. Need to invest for a robust HR and training department to ensure employee satisfaction and development.
