Pros

Health insurance was generally affordable.

Cons

Not much respect for hourly employees, vacation policy is very outdated. Longevity counts for more than knowledge or abilities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is 2012, not 1980, drag the company into the present, stop living in the past

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits
    Could buy up to an extra week of vacation time
    Very good rapport between departments

    Cons

    Upper management had their "pets", and it when it cam time for promotions, you knew who they were. If the "pets" couldn't do the job they were hired to do, they were promoted to project managers over the very jobs that they couldn't do!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to listen to those "in the trenches" when it comes to restructuring departments. Those employees are the ones who can give the optimum advice on what works best for what you want to accomplish.

    Pros

    Large company with a strong history. standard benefits package, Global resources, Large network, c

    Cons

    Software and communication methods are out of date. Lack of support and structure from Upper management. lack of appreciation for their employees, not rewarding to their employees for their long commitment & hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management should be be more in touch with what is happening with their company. To only have a few favorite employees does not provide a good understand about how your business is really doing. I can not speak for all of Leggett & Platt Corporate overall but some of the branches I strongly feel are NOT managed successfully.

    No opinion of CEO
