    Pros

    They pay you. Sorry, that's about as "pro" as I can get.

    Cons

    Completely dysfunction. One person runs the show and all others beckon to his every whim. Unless things change dramatically in terms of the second tier managers, specifically in quality, they'll likely lose the REST of their business to competition.

    Advice to Management

    Karma.

    Pros

    You can get a job here in a jiffy (anyone can).

    Cons

    Turn over rate is so extreme that nobody even knows new people's names until they've been there a couple of weeks. Not loyalty to any employees, even those whose abilities far exceed the norm. Points system for attendance. Poor quality and safety standards. They expect you to live there 24/7/52.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your head out of your hind quarters and make a SURPRISE visit to Lebanon, TN so you can see what is really going on.

    Pros

    Pros

    Good manufacturing footprint, and lots of potential. Sadly the cons out-weigh the Pros,

    Cons

    NO work life balance. Absolutely ZERO processes/procedures in place to manage your responsibilities. Senior Management does not seem to be able to make decisions based on the long term effect, and does not have any interest in building a team oriented environment.

    Advice to Management

    Your team members are not simply cogs in a wheel.... to reach full potential, the correct people with the correct skill sets need to be in the right positions. If growth is to continue, business cannot continue to be managed the same way it was when L & W was a small, home-grown, family based company.
