    I worked at Lennox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k, pension, not stingy with spending money to learn more.

    Cons

    Run like a "good old boys" club, if you're not former military or in the network, you can forget it. Some efforts to diversify, but behind the times. Also pay cuts! Thanks Lennox for cutting our pay to save share price.

    Advice to Management

    Poor industry forecasting has made you lose good talent.

    I worked at Lennox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lennox is an old company who does well at keeping up with current trends in the industry in terms of products.

    Cons

    With old processes that are long overdue for automation, many times they end up behind the curve in their back office which slows them down overall. Also, they have a huge amount of finance people at the "Senior Analyst" level who aren't being groomed to move forward and opportunities at the next level are sparse.

    Advice to Management

    Invest real time and effort (money) in Lean practices and follow through on process changes. Also, work on grooming from within and creating opportunities for employees. Stop putting high value people in low value roles.
