State of the Honeywell Employee
I'd like to lay some ground work here first. I've been with Honeywell's Automation and Control Solutions now for over 26+ years. I joined in 1985, and our first business celebration included Surf and Turf with a live band. It's been a while now since we've even had a business celebration, and about the only thing we got was a Christmas dinner with a White elephant gift exchange. Benefits were pretty much no out of pocket, but now we share in a great deal of those. I haven't had my head under a rock the past 26 years, but I don't have to say that our benefits, pay raises, get togethers (kick offs and holidays), and even pay raises have suffered tremendously over the past 26 years. I think the nail in the coffin was when I hit 25 years, and found out there was no anniversary gift, they had changed it to every 10 years now. A quarter of a century of service, and nothing? Thanks, Honeywell.
I was just in a meeting, and management was asking why Honeywell employees aren't selling more SPOT, or getting involved in the sales and promotions of the business. I have a theory about that. When I joined the company in 1985, I was told repeatedly that Honeywell's people are their most valuable asset. It was a blend of talent and intellectual capitol that kept the company going, and it showed in our pay raises and benefits. I haven't heard that from management for over a decade or longer now. In short, I feel people that work for Honeywell, feel basically a dis-connect that wasn't there when I joined. There are times where Honeywell makes me feel more of a burden than an asset when reporting financials and I know that isn't the case. Honeywell’s management has lost touch with their people. When pay raises come along now, they let us know that because of the economy, they cannot give us a pay raise that comes up even with the basic cost of living increases. All this is in the face of multimillion bonuses given to management. All we are reminded of is that we are lucky to have a job.
Honeywell management, in their greed and narcissism, has all but forgotten about the people that they are living off of. They have cut back benefits and pay in order to keep their own pockets lined in abundance. What they fail to realize is this is a downhill spiral. I've seen scores of very talented people leave the company in the past few years, and I myself may follow soon. The situation that the management of Honeywell has created, and seems to be continually reinforcing, is the whole reason unions were created. The American middle class is the greatest purchasing power on the face of the earth; and corporate America, including Honeywell, is systematically destroying it. Where will Honeywell sell its fans, T-stats, AC equipment, etc. to when the middle class is gone? China? Good luck with that.
So, Honeywell management, can you fix this? Can our new motto be an old one, that People are its most valuable asset? Can you make the “little people” feel like part of the company again, and take pride in it, and feel good about how the company takes care of us? In short, can you make us feel like we did in the 80s, when Honeywell management really understood how to grow and build a business, and make us feel like we were part of something, and feel good aobut going out and looking for new sources of revenue like SPOT, and other opportunities?
Signed, … Still a valuable asset…
