Very Traditional, Slowly Changing, Good Products

E-commerce Coordinator (Former Employee)
Melville, NY

I worked at Leviton full-time for more than a year

ProsIf you work in the newer and up & coming departments, they're run better. They're getting into a lot of energy management systems and their COO seems like a smart guy. You get cubes with high walls which is rare now a days. New stuff includes Electric Vehicles stuff, so that's kind of cool

ConsThe IT is about 20 years old, however the computers they give you are good. They're too attached to older systems used for manufacturing. Most people working here are 45+ but hiring lots of young-ins so that's a plus.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep bringing the change, the environment is getting better especially for a home electrical company.

Learned a great deal in a (still) family business

Manager, Director (Former Employee)
Bothell, WA

I worked at Leviton full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe Leviton family members are the reason to work here, there is tremendous 2-way loyalty to good employees.

ConsInflux of consultants who have moved into executive positions, and still act like consultants instead of leaders or even decent managers, bringing in favoritism and other problems into an otherwise healthy work environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementCenter back more on the family values and ethics, they've worked well for over 100 years.

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

10+ years at Leviton.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Melville, NY

I have been working at Leviton full-time for more than 10 years

ProsTerrific working atmosphere with co-workers. Access to training and self improvement if you take the initiative. Generous benefits package.

ConsNot all departments are easy to advance. In some aspects the "Boy's Club" rules. Management has unrealistic expectations both in terms of workload and goals. Low percentage pay raise and bonus.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate employees with higher pay rates evenly across the company.

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

Lots of work, corporate bureaucracy

Finish Good Planner (Former Employee)
El Paso, TX

I worked at Leviton full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of work that is pertinent to the company. They do a lot of promoting from within. There was a lot of team work within my department with good direct leadership.

ConsTotal bureaucracy with upper level management. Pay levels were way under the national average but it could have also been the location where I worked. Crappy work life balance and sometimes seemed like they expected everything from the employee without giving anything back.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like they're people with a life outside of the office.
