    Very low resources available - current plan is to migrate IT resources to India

    IT Manager (Current Employee)
    Richardson, TX

    ProsGreat people dedicated to making the best out of a bad environment

    Consquestionable and lack of leadership

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo some studies on moving resources to India - budget should not be the only deciding factor - the company is growing but OPx is staying flat. You have a great deal of single point s a failure, most are people. Develope a 1/3/5 year IT plan - basic stuff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Once great company that has been ruined by poor executive leadership

    Director (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsOnce the pride of the HVAC industry with a culture and leadership team that was best in class (due to prior owner and CEO). Some solid leadership remains at the middle management level. Decent work/life balance in an industry that is fairly stable.

    ConsCurrent CEO and Executive team that manage by the quarterly stock price (in order to line their pockets), while the welfare of the employee is completely and wholly expendable. Not one decision since 2007 (appointment of current CEO) has been in the best interest of the employee. They will find ways to renege on commitments if it will further pad their pockets with a few $. Employees no longer have pride in the company and many are looking for a way out. Little joy, excitement, or camaraderie remain within the four walls. The cafeteria has become a ghost town as people stay at their desk or leave the building for a brief respite from the daily drudgery.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company is still salvageable but you must show a commitment beyond your own pocketbook and start taking a sincere and personal interest in the well being of your employees. If a choice is available, do the right thing for the employee. Board - replace the CEO immediately with an individual who has a personality, cares about people, and will actually engage in sincere conversation with the "common folks". Lennox didn't survive for over 100 years by having poor leadership that focuses on nothing more than a short term quarterly result!

    Rewarding

    Project Leader (Current Employee)
    Richardson, TX

    ProsDelivering results that meet or exceed goals is rewarded with trust, compensation, development for further opportunities, etc. Although the company has a significant global presence, it still has that small company, almost "family" feel, and the level of talent that each of my co-workers have, continually amazes me.

    ConsLike working at any of the HVACR companies, this business is closely tied to housing starts, commercial builds, and of course, the weather. So be prepared for lean times, and be ready to chip in and bear the burden of the down-cycles when they occur.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not what it used to be

    Human Resources Generalist (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsFrom what I understand from others that have been here longer than me, this used to be a family, employee centered company but that is no longer the case.

    ConsNew approach of CEO is to make money at the costs of the lower level employees. Pay cuts,layoffs, etc. then 6 mths later take a big bonus for himself from the Board of Directors while the rest of us suffer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds new CEO and upper leadership

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fantastic team of people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Richardson, TX

    ProsPretty conservative which means not easily affected by market fluctuations. They don't hire and fire admin staff just due to seasonal demand or lack thereof.

    ConsNot too many growth opportunities in terms of title/level. But then they also do not blindly create positions just to satisfy the whims of one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good job. Your positive attitude and keeping reasonable expectations, even in hyper market growth phases has kept this company a tight ship.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
