    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

    Pros

    Pretty 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.

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Lennox has very good Medical Benefits compared to other companies in the HVAC industry.
    Training and learning are becoming more of a focus, which is great to be a part of.
    Good opportunities to grow with the company.

    Cons

    Lennox, like most large companies can lose sight of the individual. Sometimes people are left in positions just because of longevity, not because of their ability or expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good for management, especially senior, to make sure all of their direct reports are really doing what is best for Lennox and their employees. Managers need to remember they work with people, not products.

    Pros

    Beside'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.

    Cons

    Since 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 ManagementAdvice

    My 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.

    Pros

    The people are amazing. The organization has had a legacy of being dedicated to providing top quality and industry leading products.

    Cons

    Senior Management is out of touch with customers and market. Unfortunately, this is reflected in the current performance of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gaither and analyze customer, competitive, and market data from the frontline soldiers to drive decisions. Stop allowing data to be interpreted to validate decisions that have already been made or implemented.

    Pros

    Lennox has a reputation for integrity, excellence, and quality. This is found in the development, manufacturing ad distribution of the Lennox products.

    Cons

    Within a larger corporation, some performance recognition and reward is lost. I do not have any additional negative feedback to provide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have any advice to management to provide.

    Pros

    Centrally located to DFW,nice building,good benefits,good pay

    Cons

    Not a place for diverse candidates,the manager is terrible and has been for years..Everyone knows it but noone is willing to reconcile their error of ever hiring this person.The HR team as a whole to work for is pretty terrible-they have had the OFCCP sitting on site many times because of the lack of diverse employees throughout the company..The systems are old and their money is too-they will pay for the skillset but once you are in-beware they treat you like bubblegum on the back of a shoe.No work/life balance-hopefully the new family in charge makes some tremendous changes otherwise they will continue to be the backwoods,good-ole boy network that it always has been.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a D/I person,devote yourself to being representative of the business/families you serve and make your workforce resemble the same.Stop segregating the cafeteria-come into the 21st century,make realistic expectations,get rid of your seasoned,senior HR people and get fresh talent in the door from the HR coordinator doing the terrible orientation to the Trainer...It;s time!
