    I have been working at Leggett & Platt full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I had a lot of freedom to do my job, my bosses supported me, and about half the employees I worked with were supportive, engaged, and came to be real friends. Most importantly, there were a lot of opportunities to learn and grow. (please do not confuse that with "opportunities for advancement" although I understand some of that has changed since I left). Good health benefits at very little cost to the employee. If you set good boundaries, there is a good work/life balance here, but it's up to you to find it.

    Cons

    They company pays less than the going rate in my area for similar positions, but for Carthage MO they pay well. The company is incredibly resistant to change- those who try are squished until they want to leave or are fired. There wasn't much room to grow from my position because promotions are generally given to those who have been there longest and there was a long line ahead of me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stricter standards of employee performance. Yes, it's great they have been there so many years, but that's because no one else would hire them, not because they're loyal. It lowers the bar for everyone.
