    Great work hours

    Counter Sales Associate (Former Employee) Charleston, SC

    ProsGood hours, good product, good inventory, good benefits, and good pay.

    ConsToo many silly rules, too much paperwork, lack of training, short staffed in the part stores, outside sales person does not help drive business to the store, too many key decision makers, store manager can't make key decisions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow the store manager to run the store, encourage the outside sales person and managers to work together to drive sales for both the store and outside sales person.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Culture is stagnant

    Manager (Former Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsBusiness is good and they have a great product - costly but good. Service team is excellent and this drives equipment sales.

    ConsLack of leadership at numerous levels. Leaders do not embrace the needed change or those that can effectively initiate change management. If you do not advertise people will not purcase your product - you cannot shrink your way to success - you invest to grow!

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire good leaders, get rid of those that are the "Bullies" - people know who they are in the organization and take care of customers and employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great potential but held back by bloated middle management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Non-event

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsThe salary and benefits are fairly good. The company loves innovation so you will get to see the company producing new and better products all the time. There is a lot of feedback/collaboration between departments, this helps makes work easier and quicker.

    ConsUnless you have a military background, your future is fairly limited. A fair portion of Senior Management has a military background (Westpoint, Annapolis etc) and executive promotions and hires reflect this bias.
    Lennox tends to "overhire" for positions resulting in qualified and able folks working junior roles. This drives frustration and angst in theranks. The idea is to bring in promotable people, but due to the paucity of senior positions and the decline in the HVAC market over the last several years, there is litttle to look forward to in the company.

    Lennox

    COMMERCIAL SALES ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat industry to work in.

    ConsThe economy has really hurt us so the company had to enforce some cut backs last year. Unfortunately those of us left have been treated like "be glad you have a job". Not seeing a lot of support from our corporate office in the last year. Crossing our fingers it will get better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees as if you could not run the company without them. We all contribute and work very hard to keep customer satisfaction and sales up.

    Too Many Changes Going ON - some not good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLennox has a lot of long term employees which has to say something about the company. Very competitive salaries and usually there are opportunities to grow.

    ConsA lot of changes at the corporate management level. Some decisions that have been made are questionable. Starting to get too many layers of management again competing against each other rather than working for a common goal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you have a solid plan in place before making organizational changes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Totally different company today.

    Sales (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe people are amazing. The organization has had a legacy of being dedicated to providing top quality and industry leading products.

    ConsSenior Management is out of touch with customers and market. Unfortunately, this is reflected in the current performance of the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGaither and analyze customer, competitive, and market data from the frontline soldiers to drive decisions. Stop allowing data to be interpreted to validate decisions that have already been made or implemented.
