Retiring after 30+ years at Honeywell. Not even a thank you from my management. Good luck. Take care of yourself and find a better job. Employees ARE NOT their greatest resource.

Well, you got me, I only lasted 29 years. I walked myself out and called it a retirement. No fanfare, no thank you's from management. Good God almighty, free at last. That was five years ago.
Sounds like a terrible place to work.
Honeyhell gives nothing for a departing gift not even a thank-you for all the years of service. Slack!
The Honeyhell challenge, survive 30 years of layoffs, furloughs, and wage freezes, win a Rolex
Gold thumb cuffs
So the gold watch they give you after 30 years, is it a Rolex or a Cartier?
happy endings are for massage parlors, not Honeywell.
Any ending at Honeyhell is Happy.
I'm expecting an exit interview with happy ending when they RIF me.
I was a result of the WFH fiasco and got a great settlement. Part of that was HR VP in Phx., a lower level HR person & my manager (female) . My manager opened the call with “ since you’ve declined to drive 2 hours each way to a honeywell facility, I am terminating your employment. The VP of HR promptly asked her to leave the call, I chuckled under my breath.
HR was very understanding and legal made it worth it all. After 37 years not one leader of my group called or emailed me but I smiled all the way to the bank.
My family and I are so happy and at peace with our deductions and the outcome.
Honeyhell will never be a Garrett or even an Allied-Signal so put up with it or keep looking and get out while you have your health.
It's not a new hr thing it is about how employees are viewed by the company. Just trash to be discarded.
must be the new HR direction
When I left after 34 years through VRIF, not one of my co-workers were notified and there was no recognition of the fact. I was called in from vacation to be laid off and was told I could leave that day, Wednesday or work out the week. My boss asked if I really wanted to do this, as I was not at a traditional retirement age. HR lady said nothing. I assured him it was exactly what I wanted and left his office. I said "good-by" to a few friends and left for good.
No fanfare, no thanks, no nothing. I could not be happier!
I retired after 36 years. Because our department was spread out and no one was located at my location from my dept, no good byes, thank you for your service. I refused an exit interview with HR because I had been warned it was BS. The HR rep at my site did not even know I existed.
Same thing happened to after 37 years. manager did the paperwork and her manager and the VP which I reported to said not one word. Fools!
