    I have been working at Lennox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are great; corporate but casual family friendly atmosphere; salary is competitive

    Cons

    Not enough room to grow or move within the company; some people stay too long in the positions not fit for them; telecommuting is not openly available (depends on the management)

    Advice to Management

    Check the temperature with the employees more often; discover their strengths, skills, and natural abilities; help them move to another department if that's what they want; arrange flexible/telecommuting work arrangements. People really value this option.

    I have been working at Lennox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Committed to ethical behavior. Considerable number of long term employees. But unfortunately the older workforce needs some turnover or the company will be in real trouble at some point in the future. This causing some heartache for people, but it is necessary and some complacent loafers need to go anyway.

    Cons

    As Senior Management is slowly turning over, I see great risk to their ethical standards. I have seen it happen before, but so far so good.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and don't lose sight of your ethics.

    I worked at Lennox full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company, great products, great people. Leadership in product innovation. Great individual leadership up the entire ranks of residential sales team.

    Cons

    Commercial and residential sometimes disjoint and not on same page always. "Corporate-ness" comes with large companies -- just deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Need more sales support in some areas. Ensure sales goals of the various measurements a stretch, yes, but still within reach. Not every single metric in every territory will gain every year. Sometimes flat (no) growth would be a stretch. Keep innovating.

    I have been working at Lennox (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for non-challenging work.

    Cons

    Management is greedy, quick to cut costs but very slow to hire. Lennox wants to grow but doesn't want to put the resources in place for sustainable growth. Fear of management's wrath is the current driver. - Very poor job growth. - Quality control issues have skyrocketed but who cares since sales are increasing. Quality issues are for someone in the field to deal with. - Poor customer support and long hold times lead to very ticked off customers - Very little diversity at corporate.

    Advice to Management

    The Good 'Ole Boy network is failing. The new management has run off the old timers, office moral is way down, departments don't communicate, and Lennox has become very bureaucratic, a dod-eat-dog environment. The only way for a leg up is to use a co-worker as a stepping stone.

    I worked at Lennox full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401k, pension, not stingy with spending money to learn more.

    Cons

    Run like a "good old boys" club, if you're not former military or in the network, you can forget it. Some efforts to diversify, but behind the times. Also pay cuts! Thanks Lennox for cutting our pay to save share price.

    Advice to Management

    Poor industry forecasting has made you lose good talent.
