      Great place to work, good people

      Pros

      The benefits are really affordable. It's a respectful environment. Everyone I've worked with seems like they just want to get the job done and do good work. We're pretty well set up to work remotely, and the transition has been easy. I've been really impressed with the company's pandemic response. It feels like they are taking it seriously and want to keep employees safe.

      Cons

      The PTO plan is not that competitive for new employees. The facilities at HQ are a little outdated and rundown depending on which building you're in (I wish they'd add water filters).

      Pros

      I worked with some great people. I know there are lots of other good ones out there.

      Cons

      If you want to work here just know that when it comes down to it, Leggett Upper Management will choose the shareholder over you every time. When COVID, hit hundreds of employees were furloughed without pay. Then the layoffs started. I know companies were worried and trying to cut costs but Leggett went too far. They fired hundreds all over the company to cut payroll costs. The worst part was when it came time for dividend discussions, they paid out anyway. They paid HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in dividend payments out to their shareholders while cutting hundreds of jobs! Did they have the right to do this? Of course. But everyone saw it and it told us everything we needed to know. Upper management (major shareholders themselves) received big checks while hundreds of people’s livelihoods were destroyed. PLEASE think long and hard before you work for a company like this. If the opportunity is just too good, then get in, get experience, and GET OUT!

      Pros

      Great team there. The floor personal would go above and beyond to get the job done

      Cons

      Be ready to not be able to make your own decisions on how to run your shift. If you like to be micro mananged this is the company for you. If you are not of a certain skin color good luck with that

      Pros

      - I loved the team I was on with L&P, with some truly incredible individuals who want to best for each other and the company. - Some groups have very healthy cultures and there are some fantastic managers- your experience will really depend on what group are in. - there are individuals working really hard to modernize the company -Corporate office has a healthy environment, cafeteria, gym access, trail - Interesting diversity of product - Many people really believe in the history and culture of Leggett

      Cons

      -Communication from leadership is mostly platitudes -Salary growth does not keep pace with inflation - Culture varies drastically with group - Management gets virtually no training when they are promoted, meaning they can't succeed as managers and their employees suffer - Company does not have systems or interest in coaching under-performing employees to help them succeed - Elements of an "old boys club," friends getting promoted over more qualified individuals
