    Great Company to work for if you look stability and hour flexibility

    Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Richardson, TX

    ProsFlexible work hours and very good leadership

    ConsGetting promotions are difficult and and when new job opportunities come up they already have someone picked out for the position before even posting it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are great people leaving the company and most of them leave for the same reason (lack of opportunities to advance their careers).

    Good experience even through numerous cutbacks

    Director (Former Employee)
    Richardson, TX

    ProsVery friendly employees and environment. Most folks are supportive of one another. Benefits are ok and the director level and above positions are eligible for bonus. If it is a good sales year, then it can be lucrative. I made a lot of friends there and that is what I looked forward to when I went to work. I also had a supportive manager but not everyone did.

    ConsCutbacks and cost cutting measures. Everyone is doing more work with less people and staff. Eye is always on bottom line sales and what to say to investors. Male dominant company - few women get promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees, not just managers. Recognition goes a long way. Promote women. Reputation is that it is a boys club.

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

    Graduate Sales Academy Associate

    Graduate Sales Academy Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with, opportunities to grow, and paid training

    ConsYou will be working at a warehouse and lifting up to 50 lbs, they are VERY vague on the post training job opportunities, and it is a white male dominated industry

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to stat moving away from the "you must start from the bottom (i.e. the warehouse) and make your way up" if someone is qualified for a position or shows potential help them.

    Great company, people.

    Summer Intern (Current Employee)

    Prosthe people there truly care about their work and making sure you are learning as well or helped whenever needed. Got a grasp of every part of the business. Let you decide what you wanted to get out of the internship. Once assigned projects, employees went out of their way to help or respond to emails which was great. The company has great values, and people who are friendly and will truly care.

    ConsInternship not as structured, things were planned on the go, based of business needs, so at times there wasn't much to do. This lead to a lot of work or tasks that were assigned which didn't have to do with the specific role you were hired for but it was still a learning experience. Also, the HVAC industry can be dull at times, the business aspect is interesting but nothing great about HVAC it is what it is.

    Nice company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFriendly employees and management. People are cooperative. Good chance to be able to work with higher management people. Although it is an international company, you still get the chance to communicate to the top.

    ConsHope to have rotation in the jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more flexible

    Great Company for talented engineers and minorities

    Principal Engineer (Former Employee)
    Carrollton, TX

    Pros1.Very lean organization! Waste of monetary asset not tolerated. Several key initiatives in play to ensure continued profittable in the face of continued margin squeeze.
    2. Product quality and reliability a key focus.
    3. Leadership in the PDR group is both strong mangerially and technically ( which is pleasantly refreshing).
    4. Best company in the HVAC market space to work for!

    Cons1. Too heavy a focus on creating premimum product in a commoditized market, need to have a better product mix to respond to market demand.
    2. Lots of high quality talent being underutilized.

    Advice to Senior Managementbe more agile

    Working at Lennox

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsBeside's current management changes at Lennox, It is a nice place to work. It's not like Googgle or other hitech Companies. BUt compare to other places that I work for, Lennox is in the top.

    ConsSince the Company is old company, there a lot of employees who are not into new technology or ideas. I guess poeple do not want a change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management is hire more young people, and retrain the old engineers. I do thank you for investing R&D while the economy was in recession. Keep up the good investment in R&D.

    use caution if considering a job with Lennox

    SOX Coordinator/ERS Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Des Moines, IA

    ProsGreat company to work for. Most people with the company are in for the long haul. That is one thing that attracted me to Lennox.

    Conscurrent state of corporate reorganization, just found out that my Des Moines office will be no longer as of 2010.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI hope that the move to split distribution into smaller regions works out, along with the storefronts. If it does not, it could be catastrophic for the company as a whole!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
