    Current Employee - Summer Intern

    Pros

    the 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.

    Cons

    Internship 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    questionable and lack of leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do 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.

    Current Employee - Project Leader  in  Richardson, TX
    Current Employee - Project Leader in Richardson, TX

    Pros

    Delivering 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.

    Cons

    Like 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.

    Once great company that has been ruined by poor executive leadership

    Pros

    Once 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.

    Cons

    Current 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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!

    Pros

    From 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.

    Cons

    New 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 ManagementAdvice

    Needs new CEO and upper leadership
