Review updated:

The Honeywell design facility in Clearwater Florida, plant 1 has very bad management. They lie and cheat employees. Allied Signal bought the company and has been killing the division. Very demoralizing. Most engineers are depressed and want to leave. Caution: do not take job from them... you will be sorry!

    Honeywell sucks! They cut budget and we got no development tools. We working with stick and stones! Then they complain it takes too long and hit us at review. Piece of ### company. And I am in another division too... People leaving in droves.

    I have done my best to walk away and let everything go, but something inside of me refuses to let go. Since I file discrimination three years ago with the EEOC against Honeywell Phoenix I have watched the same discriminative practices used over and over again on the employees of color at Honeywell. Many of the people who know that I filed have come to me and asked what can be done. My answer to them has always been that nothing at all can be done because just like I was told by the supervision at Honeywell and I now believe the EEOC is paid for and owned by the corporations in Arizona. These are not my words but those of the supervision at Honeywell. This was also in the claim that I filed three years ago, so the EEOC also knows it was said by Honeywell supervision.

    I feel that the EEOC sold me out from the first time I walked into their office. I made it very clear as to what had taken place and I also gave the EEOC more then 30 witnesses. I asked that if it was found that what I was saying was truth what the EEOC would do to help me. I was told that if my claim was found to be true then the EEOC would do its best to mediate a settlement with Honeywell. I was told that if there was no settlement thru meditation then the EEOC would represent me in a court of law. This was all a lie. The EEOC did nothing to help me fight the discriminative actions of Honeywell.

    It took over two years before The EEOC began an investigation. I had to call over and over to get the investigator to talk to any of the witnesses. The people that I talk to later all told me that the investigator first acted as if she did not believe what she was hearing from them, but it all supported what I had claimed. After three years it was finally ruled that Honeywell did in fact discriminate again me. I got a call one morning from a mediator asking what I would settle for. He than told me to make it small or the EEOC may not support me if this goes into a court of law. This sounded like an ultimatum and I do believe that it was. I was given no help or advice as to what a settlement should be or how to find a settlement. As a matter of fact I was given no help or advice at all from the EEOC from the beginning of this claim to the end of the claim. I told the mediator since I did not do this every day that I had no ideal what a settle should be and that I would need a lawyer to advise me.

    Since I felt that I was given an ultimatum by the EEOC to settle for little or nothing. I went to a lawyer to find out just what this settlement should be. I was told that since this discrimination was being done with Honeywell’s HR department full knowledge of it happening and that I was able to prove that there was a long history of decimation against me this should not be a small settlement I made an offer based on my lawyers suggestion and was turned down by Honeywell. There was no attempt to mediate as I was told by the EEOC. The EEOC mediator told me that the offer was turned down and he was closing the case. I told him that I would give Honeywell a chance to find a settlement since I was not able to do so. He then said that he would try one more time.

    Because I felt that Honeywell and the EEOC knew more then what I was being told and that they may have even been working together I wrote to John McCain and to Jon Kyle to ask for their help in insuring that the laws in the State of Arizona, and the United States was upheld. It seems that the only people’s rights they care about protecting are illegal aliens, or the Taliban. I would have done just as good if I had written to Peter Pan. It was very systematic in the way I was run over from the start by both the EEOC and Honeywell. About a month later Honeywell came back at me and made an offer of $10.000 or $7.000 after my lawyers were paid. My wife looked at me and said “The EEOC and Honeywell must think that you are a crack head.” I had no other choice but to turn this no offer down. About a week later the EEOC send me a letter stating that the EEOC did not have the resources to carry this on any farther and was dropping the case. It stated that I would have to fight this on my own. This is just what my supervisor at Honeywell said had happened in the pass and would happen again. How could he know if this was not an on going understanding with the EEOC? If this was all the support I had found in the last 3 years I would be a fool to spend all my retirement savings to fight on. If the United States Government did not have the resources how in the hell did the think that I was expected to have the funds (BULL), or did they? In the end the only person who paid out anything ended up being me. How many People have this been pulled on?

    The reason I am writing this letter and sending it out to so many people is the fact that this type of discrimination has gone on for as many years as I have worked at Honeywell (30 years) and is still going on at Honeywell today. The EEOC knows all about it, and it still does nothing about it. I know this because other people have come to me and have told me that they have tried to work with the Phoenix EEOC and have had no luck. I feel that Honeywell and the EEOC thinks that African Americans are stupid and are fools. At best the only job that the EEOC is doing is to cover up for decimation by the large corporations in the Phoenix area. The only time I have seen or heard of anything being done to help people by the EEOC is when large groups of people have complained about a problem, or the person making the complain is handicapped, or they have been non African Americans. Just single African Americans find no help threw the Phoenix EEOC. The Phoenix EEOC is only looking for high profile cases. I would also like to make it clear to Mr. Chester V. Bailey of the EEOC and to Honeywell that I may be a small person in their eyes but I will never stop the fight for equality. I may look like a nut writing this letter, but equality should be a right of every American regardless of race, so I say let me seem as nutty as I can get. This is part of what makes me an American, and I am proud of it. If there is nothing more I can do I will write until someone who cares or has the power to stop this discrimination listens to what is going on here in Phoenix.

    Southwestern Oklahoma State University is destroying my wife's life with the aid and assistance of the EEOC, State Workman Comp Court, lawyers taking bribes, doctors taking payoffs. The EEOC has received the proof and refuses to act on it.

    State Government in Oklahoma is in the least and immoral. They are in fact the DEVIL in the guise of the mistreated and abused christian, the only thing they truly perceive as holy is their money and their hate and prejudice toward those they consider lower class. Decent people do not have a chance things need to change.

    Besides education in Oklahoma being a joke it is full of corrupt perverts preying on children and their parents. The good people keep electing and praising those that are corrupt, and they do it in the name of GOD. Study up on what "SOONER" really meant and the kind of people they are. Practice caution in Oklahoma you might get your throat cut by an OKIE who would SOONER rob you as shake your hand.

    You should have taken the $10,000 dollar settlement offer from Honeywell. Better Something than nothing. Im surprised you are still empoyed by them. Usually these companies fire employees for contacting the EEOC. I would go back and get signatures from all 30 wittness', with a signed affidavit. Since the EEOC doesnt want to handle the case and dropped it, i would take it to a NEWS AGENCY. Im sure the local news would like to hear about a company which is still involved in discriminatory practices after the EEOC droped the ball. Better yet call you state senator and congressman. Tell them what the EEOC did, sit back and watch the fireworks begin. Too bad Honeywell didnt fire you, you could have got them hard for retaliation for contacting the EEOC. If you do get termintated at a later date, you can say it was " retaliation for contacting the EEOC. You can ask for back pay, and front pay, and if they fire enough of you folks, your looking at a class actions lawsuit...Good Luck!

    I'm with Metrologic and we just got bought out by these clowns. Sounds like Harry Knowles 'knowles' how to frig things up again.We have been in complete melt down since the patent violations we committed against Symbol Technologies. Its great to know there will be more of the same employee harassment, cheap company policies, and embarrassment for working for these pieces of ###.

    Looks like Knowels matched up with another winner at the gay bar. I've had it with this ###, kissing ### from Asia to Germany. Honeywell and Metrologic, so happy together until we organize a lawsuit to take these ###s down.

    H'ell is lost when it comes to employees (or colleague as they call their employees). They have this new scheme to eliminate annual raises, it called MIP (Management Incentive Plan). They claim it's based on performance. Now H'ells idea of acceptable performance is 30% profit. Years where this is achieved, the "colleagues" get 3% raises. When H'ell makes only 20%, there are no raises...like they announced for 2009. Now, if you can say that raises scheduled for 3 or 4 months from now are going to be ZERO, you would think these genius managers could do something to correct the business in 4 months...oh ya, they already sold everything, laid off everyone and sent all the work to India. Maybe H'ell is screwed? In Tucson, the only people that are staying are the ones on the "Old Plan". When Allied Signal bought H'ell, they gave us this great opportunity to choose the "new" H'ell retirement plan or stay with the "old" Allied plan. The new plan, although it's not as good as the old plan for lifers who stay till they are 63, it does cut you a check when you quit.
    In Tucson, all the best engineers have left. The ones remaining are "old plan" lifers and ones with quirks that prevent them from getting a better position.
    Bottom line, don't go to work for H'ell unless you are a contractor and make sure you get 30% more than the going rate.

    Honeywell does indeed suck to work for. From my perspective, Allied-Signal was a much better company to work for. Our facility has implemented a Draconian on-call policy. Basically we get ~2 days a month that we're not on call and can go do something with our families. And of course there is no on call pay, no overtime pay for being forced in, and no phone/pager provided. And of course, we have to be able to be on-site within 1 hour of the call. Hell, some of us live further there an hour away to begin with. Basically, we have to answer our own personal phones and be Honeyhell's leash. If we don't answer, there is disciplinary action. Definitely avoid Honeyhell if you can, or only take a job there if you don't plan to make a career with 'hell. If I didn't have so many years invested there already, I'd be long gone. (An option I'm still considering anyway)

    I am suing Honeywell... I used to work for Honeywell on Fort Drum, and they fired me after I filed a discrimination complaint with NY State. The EEOC will not do anything at all, but to sit and waste your time it is sad but true. after my 180 days that I had to wait I requested a right to sue letter and looked for lawyer that will work on my case in a contingency agreement.

    I am waitting still... But I will go to the news and put out all of their dirt here on Fort Drum, but what is sad is that I looked for all the help on post and everywhere but everything seemed impossible and I waited and still waitting.

    My best advise will be dont lose hope and look into your state laws, know what you can do and cannot do. dont trust in other people testifying for you or saying what they saw. You have to get whatever evidence you could get to visually prove your case. for example I looked up the laws on recording and I recorded many conversation and even printed reports to proof my case if it needs to go to court.

    Good luck to everyone... Honeywell is gone go down for all the wrong that they have done to many people we just have to wait.

    Honeywell in Louisville is the pits. The management has decided you are no longer adult enough to bring in a cell phone, because you might use it. You can no longer bring in a magazine, because you might read it. Your phone is recorded, your computer screen is recorded, your watched with video cameras. You are told not to walk down certain isles because you might talk to somebody. They listen to your telephone calls so they can tell you how to talk better. You are supposed to go by the book, like people in India do. People who call in hate talking to India. It is Micromanagement at its worst. Everyone is talking about leaving as soon as the economy gets better. Management has the upper hand because of the economy, so they are going to torq the screws. Too bad they are willing to gamble and talent is going to leave because of micromanagment. Idiots Don't work here if you value freedom as a human being. You would have fewer rules if you were in a prison.

    I'm working with GCSC India, an captive outsourcing unit of Honeywell. People here are pissed off bye the Management team here. They are very good in papers..so any employees can't skip them and go to the next level with their concerns. The Top Three (CEO, Director IT & Director HR) all together playing bad games(so called corporate politics) with employees. If you speak against them you are out of GCSC. Nobody from the top management of Honeywell India looking at this centre...

    Honeywell India is a bad place to work. As many said, its good in papers...but they don't have minimum respect to people who do good work...yes one of the comment above says most of them are incompetent which is very much true...they ask employees for feedback and when they do not like the feedback given, the employee is backfired by threatening that it is not legal to give this feedback, do you know rules, behaviours of Honeywell e.t.c... company is full of bad politics... what I would suggest is if you do not have job, better beg on streets do not join this organisation as you will feel much disgusted than begging.

    Don't think your the lone ranger! 35 years at MPLS H'ell and I can testify that all said is so true that it's still seems impossible to believe. The place is being managed by clowns...any legacy H'ell employee is treated like a second class citizen. We can only sit back and watch how the genious's learn how to manage a company by running it into the ground. Only when it's over will they ask "how could this have happened?" And as far as the EEOC goes...come on man! do you really think that a government funded agency gives a hoot about you. I have witnessed sexual harrassment, minority exploitatation, theft, fraud, colusion, cover-up's of cover-up's, employees murdered by other employees...YES, and management was forwarned and did what?...nothing and asked "how could this have happened?" The human resource department is in "bed" with management and is actually known for threats of termination as a response to those complaints. It really is not a bad place to work anymore because they only hire contract engineers and they could care less about what goes on in the future of a company that employs them for 18 months. As for the rest, I pity the young vibrant engineers who are still riding the death wagon of old engineers who no longer care. Sorry, but it's true. And sadly so is most of what I have read in this blog.

    Honeywell Australia is the most unethical and corrupt organisation that I have ever experienced. Their treatment of customers is a disgrace ! Through my dealings with this company, I found their abilities did not meet my expectations, I am unsatisfied with all the excusses provided and found the attitude of the executive towards meeting my expectations, unacceptable.

    We spent $thousands on a Honeywell NetAXS key card door system. It is easily one of the worst business decisions we've ever made. The interface is cryptic and confusing, even for an engineer. The technician who installed it struggled for two weeks to program a simple schedule. Now that works but the HTML service locks up all the time, requiring me to tear apart ceiling tiles to get to the equipment so I can hard boot it, which requires shutting of its power and opening the box and unplugging internal battery. I'm just fed up with this piece of garbage. It was oversold to us on the front end. I'll never buy a Honeywell product again.

    Age discrimination is alive and well at the Aerospace division in Phoenix. It is a long standing tradition at this company. They really exploit the employee review and ranking system to make all the old engineers who aren't chiefs, DER's, managers, or superstars look like horrible, underperforming fools. It amounts to defamation what they do to your reputation and character. How do you prove that you are a concientious worker and that they are lying? These managers and HR pukes are entirely devoid of concience or scruples. They will literally do anything they are told to by their handlers.

    I've worked for Honeywell since 2000
    It used to be a good company to work for.

    Until about ten years ago, it was consistently listed as one of the best companies in the world to work for, usually in the top 20.

    Today Quik Trip (a convenience store chain) and Starbucks are on that list but my Honeywell is not is not.

    They have constantly cut benefits year after year. They used to pay the full cost of safety shoes and glasses, now they pay only part.

    They used to match 401K dollar for dollar, now they match 50 cents on each dollar I contribute.

    No pay raises in three years. Considering inflation, that's actually a pay cut.

    5 years ago I remember a dentist remarking about what great coverage I had. Today I have a hard time finding a dentist that will take the cheap dental insurance they give us.
    A few years ago we got a $50 gift certificate for Thanksgiving, and usually a company jacket and another gift certificate for Christmas. The last several years...nothing.
    They used to pay double time holidays and Sundays. They no longer pay double time EVER.

    This year they put a $3000 dollar per person deductible on our health care.

    And I am about to be fired because of it.
    Trying to pay for my wife's medication and my asthma medication I sometimes can't get mine. When I don't have it, I can't sleep, or breath well, so my performance drops. And now I am about to be fired for that performance drop. ### manager laughed and told me it wasn't his problem. Told me I should go on advisability. I don't need disability, I need medical coverage so I can get meds I used to get.

    Meanwhile Dave Cotes got a 12 million dollar raise. I wonder what he'll get this year, for all the money he saved taking our medical coverage away.

    3 years ago the company I worked for in Australia was bought out by Honeywell. There was lots of rah rah great to have you on board etc. talk but things have gone downhill from there. The original company had good software that was installed in dozens of mines in Aus and around the world. Honeywell are killing this product but dont have anything to offer as a replacement. I have seen customers lied to, projects being oversold and a total disregard for customer satisfaction. Their software is not flexible, as this would mean that support would be potentially complex and that cant be accommodated by their outsourced "support" department. When I speak to customers I hear 2 general themes; arrogant and overpriced. Management is not interested in making decisions as everyone is scared their ### will be fired if the decision does not work out. I would not recommend them as a company to work for.

    I have been working for UOP a Honeywell company for more than two decades. I have degree and have been the central person for analytical chemistry being connected directly to their pilot plants. Recently I discover the person I trained and help regularly earns more than me even though they're a grad level below me. So they promise me they'll really check into this that it is definitely unfair and something should be done, but no promises. And now I have just discovered UOP/Honeywell's solution: promote that person and give them a raise.

    Honeywell MIP and SIP bonis pans are made to deward you. Thsi year, they took 30% away from everyone because the entire groupd did not make the numbers, so they penalize everyone for the few and the mistake of buying EMS. Teh MIP and SIP plans are designd to give you less bonus than you would make somewhere else. I made a 10% bonus at my previous employers and i clear more than i do at Honeywell wher my salry is 22k higher and bonus is 15% and i make less in bonusses here than i did ever before.
    it is a scam.
    Honeywell has low integrity and no moral compass. They screw customers for the dollar increase, the ne M&PM group only cares about margin and profit, not customers or product value. the product is the worse, if you pout it on your aircraft you will get sucked in and never get out.

    Peopel are not accountable for the work they do, Directors and Sr Maangers spend their lives making up excuses for how they can't do somethginor how itis not their jobs.

    Honeywell is the worst company out there by far.

    Honeywell is doing FORCED Furloughs at Christmas and no one knows why. They have had one of their best years ever but the CEO and Mahoney are forcing unpaid leaves of it people at Christmas tiome of all the tomes to do it, yet no one in leadership knows why we need to save the money except for all the engineering cost over runs, but engineering is not included in the fuloughs or upcoming layoffs.

    I use to work for Honeywell in Utah. Terrible place to work. Managers told employees they will run the program how they see fit, If you didn't like it you can find another place to work. Certain employees where allowed to do what ever they wanted with out being wrote up. One female employee was allowed to threaten other employees, boss people around while not in a management position. Complaints about her where swept under the rug because she was friends with the management. Employees showed up late everyday and spent time on their cellphones and management did nothing about it. I was told I had to give a ride to another employee in my personal car. Management hired their under qualified friends and family over qualified candidates. Employees lied to management, blamed other employees for their mistakes and covered up their mistakes. Incompetence was rewarded and hard work punished. Your reward for doing a good job was having to do other people jobs because they could not keep up. Several employees got feed up and left. In the two years I worked their 14 people quit. After employees left their reputations where tarnished within the company. They told me I would be welcome to come back it they had a opening. I had to hold in my laughter. The happiest day of my life was the day I left Honeywell.

    After working with Honeywell for more than five years, I look back and rue over the time I spent there. I was young and full of life and loved the prospect of working with a fortune 100 company. Three months into the job and I knew my happiness was lost. I did well, though. The clients loved my work. Some of them send season's greetings even today. Everything was right everywhere but my manager envied me. And he f***ed it up for me. He married his colleague, forgiven. His wife worked with him after the marriage, forgiven. And a young hard-worker raises concern about his future self, not forgiven.

    Was the manager more qualified than me? No.
    Was he more knowledgeable than me? No.
    Was he more reasonable than me? No.
    Was he more customer friendly than me? No.
    Was he doing anything more than me (exclude the f***ing his assistant part)? No.
    Then why in this world did he not want my promotion? Because he envied me.

    I resigned from the company twice, only to receive a call-back from my manager's boss on a pretext that things would improve. Things never improved but today I stand improved. Imagine having to change the entire line of work, yes - I did because of some sons of whores at Honeywell. I love the work I do now. I am proud of my achievements at Honeywell. I left a legacy of my skills behind and I can confidently tell the managers at Honeywell.

    I am Sean, ex-employee of Honeywell Security Group. I am your GOD, Honeywell. Go figure!!!

    Years ago Honeywell was a good place to work and I think you will hear that from a lot of retirees. Now it is a miserable place, little or no raises, unpaid furloughs and lousy benefits. The work environment is horrible. Managers are selected based on their support of HOS (Honeywell Operating System) which is the current psychological hoax being perpetuated, and not for any particular skill or talent in dealing with people. Micromanagement is on steroids at this company. I would not recommend this company to anyone and the people that they do currently hire are not sticking around once they find out what the company is all about.

    Dittos ...I had the exact same experiences as you, over 40 years, major discrimination in aerospace group, EEOC in Phoenix is useless, HR is useless. Someone could hang themselves in the plant and Honeywell would see it as no big seal.

    Wow, I've known for almost 20 years that 'Honeylied' (the name I give it in 1999 during the initial merger with Allied Signal) SUCKS... but I had not realized the world-wide level of their greedy ignorance and inept management practices (Please don't get me started on 6 Sigma and Heijunka implementation). I've worked (always as a contract employee) at several Honeywell Aerospace facilities in the Phoenix, Arizona area. I started out with Honeywell EFIS (Electronic Flight Instrumentation Systems), as an Electronics Test Technician, in 1999, only a few months before the Allied Signal merger was finalized. My department manager told me that he had recommended me for direct-hire to my position and 3 days later, Honeywell laid off EVERY contract aka temporary employee, including me. Two and a half months later, I got hired to another temporary position at what used to be Honeywell IAC (Industrial Automated Controls) as an Electronic Engineering Technician working directly with an old-school Engineer on a new project development. That was around 10/1999 and the week BEFORE Christmas 1999, ALL the temps were laid off again during another round of 'head-chopping. I was let go because the Engineer that I was working for (a Mr. James Bonds... yeah, I had fun with his name too.) was due to retire in 10 months and Honeylied offered him his full regular wages for the next 10 months AND his 'full 30 year retirement', IF he would take an immediate 'early retirement'. He apologized to me, knowing that it would end my employment, but it was just too good to pass up. Since then, I've worked several other 'contract positions' at the Deer Valley plant, in North Phoenix. The last one was a 6-month contract, in early 2014, which was not extended because they were experiencing a 'parts inventory shortage' from a First Source Vendor. But HERE's the rub: I've applied to the very same positions offered for direct-hire and have NEVER gotten a single invitation to interview. They will rent my technical skills and 30 years experience BUT they will not interview me for direct-hire employment to the exact same jobs. Instead, Honeylied HR sends me an email, claiming to want to 'know more' about me, with a web-link to a site to take a 'behavioral assessment evaluation'. The link is always set to expire in 48 hours. The first two times, I completed the assessment and never heard back after that. I've received several more since, including one about a month ago... and I basically, but politely told them to go 'eff' themselves. If my talent is good enough for them to repeatedly 'rent me like a street-walker', then I'm good enough to be a direct employee, regardless of their BS psych evaluations. Let the manager actually interview me and determine if we have good fit, not leave it to some online personality assessment software product. I swore in 2004 that I would never work for this '[censor]-stain' of a company again but... when you need a job to support yourself, you have to take what you can get and bite the bullet to accept the screwing you know you're going to get with this organization.

    I left the company back in May after 5 years. At first I enjoyed working there but as time went on, I noticed a lot of issues. For example a manager only being hired because of who their family member is in the organization. Inspite the lack of experience. Then also the overwhelming workload that is pushed on the salary employees and no compensation. It was expected to work constantly and even work while on vacation based on back up availability. And managers having the attitude that “everyone is replaceable and your contribution is not valuable.” Also managers being hired with no experience and having the attitude that they do not need to be accountable for anything when things go wrong especially when it was their direction. And what is the point of having HR when no concerns brought to them are addressed! I can go on and on about Honeywell and their unethical practices and the lack of respect for their employees but I will just reference it as “Honeyhell” as some of my former colleagues would say!

    I used to work for Garrett AirResearch (a division of the Signal Co.) It went downhill fast after it's merger with Allied.
    I was cheated out of my layoff package after they ask me if I had a gun in my car. (Note: The parking lot is separated from the main plant with a fence topped with barbed wire and has guarded access.) When I said I do I was told that was against there rules. I had never been told that it was. I didn't dispute this because the job application, employment contract, or employee handbook stated that employees would be employed "at will."
    After my termination I heard that the company had a purge of employees for drug use.
    I'm sure in many cases that was true as was alcoholism. Just working at that place was enough to make people drink. I never was a drug user but I admit I was an alcoholic. This played no part in my termination - I didn't drink on company time. Although I never did my drinking until I got home for the day, I know of many others who tanked up at lunch time.
    Wonderful that drunks and drug addicts were building aircraft parts (I post sarcastically).
    Please excuse my rambling but even after many years I still hold a grudge for what current employees call HoneyHell or MoneyHell.
    I quit my hard drinking after my termination and indeed have completely quit drinking for this century.

    Took a picture of the company car that was too close driving behind my car. Tailgated me for about 2 miles straight. Trying to intimidate me. This driver does not belong on the road.
