    I worked at LECO Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some friendly
    Day Shift
    So so family oriented

    Cons

    None to very little pay raise.
    No move up in company.
    High up look down on the lower pay scale workers
    Most love drama in shop
    No employee appreciation or hard work appreciation and company picnic don't count
    Mandatory over time when manager comes in after lunch and writes on board 9 to 10 hours without 24 hour notice.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to workers advice
    Fix conflicts before it leads to more
    Appreciate hard workers
    Don't let the leader ship go to the head cause one day your spot will be filled and you'll be forgotten.

    I have been working at LECO Corp full-time

    Pros

    Generally a 40 hour work week
    Doesn't push for non-maintainable work schedule
    Will work around family issues like having to take kids to school on a case-by-case basis
    Allows people to stay technical
    Can wear jeans
    Awesome yearly picnic (fair)
    The pay is OK in some departments
    Can be technically challenging at times

    Cons

    No flex-time
    Can't work from home
    Not generally receptive to new ideas or technologies
    Not much room for advancement (but you can stay technical)
    Can't wear shorts and sandles, t-shirts are questionable
    Still actively developing some applications in C++/MFC instead of C#, JS or another more-appropriate, high-level language and platform
    Some new products are being developed without UX design
    Not much unit testing or push for good software architecture & design on huge projects
    The leadership tends to micromanage, but this varies

    Advice to Management

    Care about what matters. Allow flex-time, foster innovation, and don't care what people wear to work. Update some of the slightly dilapidated offices & buildings. Try to push practices that make it easier to develop software on big teams like unit testing and software design/architecture. Allow people to try new libraries and techniques more and bring other people along instead of the team sometimes being held back. Take feedback from subordinates so you really know what's going on and how a manager is doing instead of being unaware of some bad practices possibly continuing indefinitely.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance it the best part of working here. 8:00 - 5:00. If you choose to put in extra hours that's up to you. A great place to work if you want to coast through your career and and not really work too hard. This company is filled will people with 25+ years of experience who have done exactly that.

    Cons

    If you are a hard working, goal oriented, self driven individual, do not waste your time. The career opportunities are non-existent, there is absolutely no career development, and employees have no ability do define their own career path.

    Pros

    Great, innovative company that strives to be the best. Small in the right ways but large enough to be confident in building a career here.

    Cons

    Limited number of products. This is good because LECO focuses on making making these instruments the best but it really limits out customer basis.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    Pros

    Owners are hands-on in every aspect of the company and care about their employees and this community here in Southwest Michigan.

    Cons

    I have no cons... I've been working in my field for 25 years, and this is by far my favorite employer.
