    Employee Morale

    I worked at the Honeywell Torrance Facility. Our department worked 7 days a week for what seemed like forever. Add to that a very arrogant manager and a 25 cent an hour raise, the first in 2 years, and one can see why morale is low. Add to that the change in medical care which cost us more then the 25 cent an hour raise was worth and you can se why employees are sick of the way Honeywell is being run.

    The present way to organic growth at Honeywell involves two things: Buying other companies and getting rid of existing employees. This is the only way that he present management of this company can show growth while real revenue declines. Employee morale suffers and the most talented people leave the company. Of course bringing in people on temp visas and paying them less is also a way to organic growth

    Acquiring Honeywell

    Northrup could buy Honeywell for the aerospace part of the business and sell the transportation end of the business to the likes of Borg-Warner which already makes automotive turbochargers. Performance Materials could be sold to Ametek. UOP could be sold to Exxon. The thermostat business could be sold to a China based company.

    Perhaps the shareholders could force a sale.

  • Having a company grow means it shows profit and success in its business enviorment. If all a company can do to show growth is by buying other companies and adding their profits to their bottom line, then this isn't true growth. Maybe its time Honeywell's shareholders demand new management, or a breakup of the company.

    Honeywell's stock price is inflated by the fact Cote is "supposedly" running a tight ship. If the only way to organic growth is buying other companies, and the morale of the workers is lower then whale doo doo, there is an underlying cause for alarm as the stock price can't stay high for too long for these reasons.

    Bu the time Darius takes over, it may be too late to do anything to mend fences with suppliers and to boost morale. The exodus of talented employees from Honeywell has already begun.
