Does Honeywell offer massages?

Pros

Difficult to think of something. Salary is slightly above average but NJ taxes make sure you are not left any better. You do get free coffee and some Kool aid. Plenty of red tape from every department. Cold shoulder and lack of support from IT and HR. If you are researching workplace abuse and how US citizens are subservient to foreigners, this is probably a good spot to spend some time.

Cons

Pretty much everything. As soon as you join, you are on your own. No one responds to your questions with useful information, there are no documents anywhere, no processes. If you are an SBG employee or corporate, its worse, everyone in the SBU's and GBE's hate you and want you to fail. Worse still the SBU's and GBE's have all the information you need for your job and are located all over the world in different time zones. For goals, you are essentially given pie in the sky targets like grow revenue by 5%, margin by 3% etc. Of course you have no authority to change anything nor are you given a team. A title and a laptop are all that you have. Next is your boss, most likely a foreigner or someone from management consulting. If its a foreigner, he is most likely a racist that has never faced an employment lawsuit for abuse. Get ready to be yelled at, cursed at, told you know nothing and get abused for your e-mails not being grammatically correct. You can't impress your boss with any accomplishments, all he cares about are power point presentations. He will use your presentations to look good in front of his boss. You will not have access to any data or systems, trying to get access will send you in a loop to India and back to the US with no result. Forget all your skills learnt previously, they are useless. Everything revolves around meetings and presentations. You are expected to know things about every business automatically. Every meeting feels like a quiz where you are asked detailed questions about some business process on some line of business in Europe. You will not know the answer and your boss won't either, but he will expect you to find out. Unfortunately no one in Europe will respond to you with information, or will send you some canned nonsense.I can go on and on, but its better to do the smart thing and jump ship like so many have done in 2019

Advice to Management

Be truthful during interviews that most jobs involve creating presentations and spreadsheets

You do get free coffee and some Kool aid.

Does Honeywell offer dental insurance?

Pros

Some of the things I value working for Honeywell include: competitive salary, career development opportunities, 401K match, resources provided to do your job

Cons

The medical and dental insurance could be better to meet the competitive offerings of other corporations in the area.

Does Honeywell offer life insurance?

Pros

Decent job for entry level technicians, 401k with 80% match for first 8% of your pay, 2 weeks vacation and 56 hours paid sick leave, Health, Vision and dental Company paid life insurance for 4x your salary

Cons

Annual raises rarely happen and when they do, they don’t even come close to the rate of inflation. So the longer you work for them, the less you make. It’s impossible to communicate issues with supervisors as they are overworked and don’t actually supervise anyone. And when you do, they are never resolved. The company has stripped away all of the perks including all company functions and as a result, moral is very low. They have gone from caring about quality to only caring about quantity. Quality issues are ignored.

Advice to Management

I would suggest that management start listening to their teams earnestly. To start caring about how people feel. To start caring about quality over production goals. To respect the need for a work life balance. And finally, raises that don’t meet inflation, is an Insult!

Does Honeywell offer a wellness program?

Pros

They portray good values. A lot of good people in the organization. Lunch, snacks, and drinks provided. Good Midtown Atlanta location. Parking and bus fare benefits. Great coffee shop in the lobby. Close to many good restaurants.

Cons

- Toxic culture - If employees do not like you, they'll complain to HR about petty stuff you do or say (e.g., a slip of the tongue) and eventually you'll be let go. Managers rarely address employee conflict issues: those are mostly handled by HR. You must be careful of everything you say and do, otherwise, you'll likely be reported to HR. Keep to yourself, hold your emotions and personal opinions, don't make jokes. - Your Manager or Director may block your professional growth - If you're offered a job within a different team, your manager must approve the transfer. If your manager doesn't want to lose you, then you can't take the job offer, even if it is a promotion opportunity. - Uncertain job stability - Even though you may work for a team dedicated to your job function, (e.g., you're a PM in the PMO), you can be moved to a team that is not aligned with your job function, without your consent. You'll still be doing the same job function, but your career path and job stability are now tied to a team or organization outside of where you originally desired to be. - Benefits are expensive - $800+ per month is not uncommon for health and life benefits. - Honeywell hates work from home - Even if your job function requires you to interface with teams across the USA or even the world, you can't WFH. You'll need to commute (no matter how long that takes) just so you can find a desk for the purpose of working with people in 4 or 5 different timezones.

$800+ per month is not uncommon for health and life benefits.
