    I have been working at Lennox as an intern

    Pros

    the people there truly care about their work and making sure you are learning as well or helped whenever needed. Got a grasp of every part of the business. Let you decide what you wanted to get out of the internship. Once assigned projects, employees went out of their way to help or respond to emails which was great. The company has great values, and people who are friendly and will truly care.

    Cons

    Internship not as structured, things were planned on the go, based of business needs, so at times there wasn't much to do. This lead to a lot of work or tasks that were assigned which didn't have to do with the specific role you were hired for but it was still a learning experience. Also, the HVAC industry can be dull at times, the business aspect is interesting but nothing great about HVAC it is what it is.

    Pros

    Friendly employees and management. People are cooperative. Good chance to be able to work with higher management people. Although it is an international company, you still get the chance to communicate to the top.

    Cons

    Hope to have rotation in the jobs.

    1.Very lean organization! Waste of monetary asset not tolerated. Several key initiatives in play to ensure continued profittable in the face of continued margin squeeze.
    2. Product quality and reliability a key focus.
    3. Leadership in the PDR group is both strong mangerially and technically ( which is pleasantly refreshing).
    4. Best company in the HVAC market space to work for!

    Cons

    1. Too heavy a focus on creating premimum product in a commoditized market, need to have a better product mix to respond to market demand.
    2. Lots of high quality talent being underutilized.

    Pros

    Lennox is very open to employees moving around to different departments after a minimum time in each position and moving up when possible.

    Cons

    Depending on your background, education, etc., an employee might hit a glass ceiling where they can't seem to move up any further. This is probably true of most corporate environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue your policy of openness and transparency. Continue with strong R&D.

    Pros

    Beside's current management changes at Lennox, It is a nice place to work. It's not like Googgle or other hitech Companies. BUt compare to other places that I work for, Lennox is in the top.

    Cons

    Since the Company is old company, there a lot of employees who are not into new technology or ideas. I guess poeple do not want a change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is hire more young people, and retrain the old engineers. I do thank you for investing R&D while the economy was in recession. Keep up the good investment in R&D.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Most people with the company are in for the long haul. That is one thing that attracted me to Lennox.

    Cons

    current state of corporate reorganization, just found out that my Des Moines office will be no longer as of 2010.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope that the move to split distribution into smaller regions works out, along with the storefronts. If it does not, it could be catastrophic for the company as a whole!
