    I worked at Leed's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great upper management, awesome CEO, semi-flexible hours, room to advance, on-site cafeteria, quiet work environment (in offices, not production), ability to travel domestically and internationally. CEO is amazing.

    Cons

    Many "cliques" and some of the upper management are rude, snobby. Horrible parking and HR changes once a year. Work hours can be extreme and employee reviews are few and far between. Not a very diverse company either.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive salaries and more flexible working environment. Screen HR employees better and possibly offer paid interns in the product development department.

    Pros

    Tons of overtime! Hot fresh food in the cafeteria for a average price

    Cons

    Poor management. Lack of proper leadership and accountability of Human Resources. Leadership roles on the floor are filled by incompetent and unprofessional "supervisors" and "coordinators". Favoritism is wide and played out by many unprofessional relationships throughout. Pay should be higher and raises are laughable. Rules are set to fit when decided it's necessary while others continue the same cycle. Not a good place to work for anyone with standards and morals. Those with a good ethic will pull their hair out when they see the chaos that ensues at this place!

    Advice to Management

    Wipe the floor clean of so called supervisors and coordinators! everyone is out for the other.

    I worked at Leed's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you can get enough overtime it might pay the bills.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Base pay is completely unrealistic. Even after a promotion, that I had to argue with management to convince I never got retro paid for, they salary did not pay the bills with 40 hours. Favoritism all around. Absurd hours (3:30 am to 1:30pm) allowed for no life outside of job.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes

    Pros

    Country setting, travelling away from city had little to no traffic. Co-workers were great people. Family atmosphere. Fast paced, never bored or idle. Onsite cafeteria and onsite covered smoking patio. Very casual dress.

    Cons

    Lack of transparency from management. Pay was poor. At times it felt like high school, you were either 'in' or 'not'. Employee efforts were not rewarded or recognized. People who held the same position were held to different standards. No accountability. Crazy mandatory overtime, sometimes 13 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Put more focus on employees. Lower healthcare costs.

    Pros

    when mastro was there, he was friendly and talked to employees. alot of overtime, which is great if you truly need the money. cafe on site.

    Cons

    new management needs to go. they favor temps, and gives a crap about employees. shows no appreciation for employees. parking lot and road into facilities are crappy in the winter time. pay is low for what we do. pay raises are a joke, as well as bonuses. cafe food can be crappy, and expensive. temps who have been here for 8 months were promised to be hired and still havent. temps that been here a few days are training on machines while employees have been here for 1+ years still have yet been trained to earn a tech 3. temps are not trained oj how to read paperwork, and just thrown on the end of belts having no idea what they are doing and orders get dns/messed up.

    Advice to Management

    employees made you who you are. treat them with respect and show some appreciation. "naz" made this place worse not better.

    Pros

    When Mastro was there he cared about employees and the place. There is a lot of overtime and you will work you butt off.

    Cons

    New management sucks. I have seen a lot of great people let go. They are now favoring temps and not long term employees. Second shift is 100% ment for people with no families. Hours are good but the pay can be crapy.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employees. Show employees you appreciate them. They got you to where you are today. Get rid of the point system. Most employees that work for you have families and children. Take that into consideration.

    I have been working at Leed's (More than a year)

    Pros

    Close to home, anybody can work there even if it hurts the customer base, and directors have set a low, very low bar for what passes as doing a descent job..

    Cons

    Directors are easily fooled by the "favorite" employees. Most of these managers are in a sales support role and openly state they don't know some small piece of information so they can avoid accountability and send their issues elsewhere. Customer service has no idea what they are doing and their management team doesn't seem to care that the customer service department dumps their work on other departments. It basically comes to zero investment in bettering the teams, lazy managers and directors, and the staff runs the show.. If the staff gets upset with you then HR cuts your head off with little explanation and with zero support from your superiors.

    Advice to Management

    Directors.. Do you know what your teams do? Follow up question... do you care?.... Last question.... Do the investors know you are running the entire company into the ground?
