A traditional small company from past times, the Lee Company holds to values established decades ago.

Project Engineer (Current Employee)
Westbrook, CT

I have been working at Lee Company

ProsThe Lee Company has an excellent benefits package. Health insurance is only $20/month for a family! In addition, the Profit Sharing plan is exceptional. Last year, the company gave a every employee a profit sharing percentage of 29% of their salary. Finally, the company is well-established financially. It is continuously growing, an accepted leader in its fields, and well-diversified.

ConsThe company is not very progressive. Senior management is inflexible and resilient to change. The company is very slow to adopt new methods and innovations, business-wise. The Lee Company is very formal, which is reflected in such things as the formal dress code for all engineers (ties at minimum and must have access to a suit coat) and the extremely structured work hours (8-5, 1 hour lunch, absolutely no flex time). The company does not rely on information technology, even removing internet access from engineer's PCs.

For many people, the above downsides will not matter. The Lee Company is a safe and good place to work. As long as you follow the rules, you will not be stressed and you will only work a 40 hour week, giving you time to be with your family. There is not much upward mobility, but that is because the turnover rate is extremely low. Your base compensation will not rise much, but the Profit Sharing makes up for it.

Advice to Senior ManagementA more progressive work environment is in order with today's times, including more flexibility with the work schedule.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Most places are either great places to gain experience with or great companies to retire with, but Lee Company is both.
