    I worked at Lennox

    Pros

    CEO has good vision for the company. Great CFO. strong products and a no stress environment. Ridiculously high pay for what is expected.

    Cons

    An embarrassingly poor IT infrastructure has resulted in an org structure that suffers from a bloated middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clean house in IT and put a true leader in the CIO role and focus on automating as much of the finance function as possible.

    I worked at Lennox as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lennox is a multibillion dollar company that does business around the world. No matter where you are in the world someone will need the product that Lennox produces; and, Lennox has a stranglehold on the market. The company has a good, all be it shaky foundation that spans over 100 years.

    Cons

    The only way to get ahead in this business is honestly who you know. Your merit in the company is based on the level of brown nosing you are willing to do. There is virtually no inside growth; meaning, if you start in the mail room, you will end in the mail room. The only people who promote are not the people who deserve it based on performance, but the people that earn it by kissing the butt of their boss. Glass ceiling would be a gross understatement. If you enjoy working off the clock for long hours with no time for your family and/or friends this is the place for you. For this company the dollar is the bottom line, and the employee is expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with a bit of dignity and respect. Stop lying to the customer and only catering to the big business you get. You will bend over backwards for the Orangutang's and Parker and Sons' but will not lift a finger to help the Green Air solution's and people like that. Level the playing field a bit and don't charge $1,000 plus for a compress that you can buy down the street for $500-600. Get someone into a position who has worked in the wearhouse and still remembers what it is like to deal with the customer in a setting other than $10 beers and $100 steak dinners on the companies dime.
