    Pros

    Stability of a large corporation, pay is on the higher end of the spectrum, benefits are mediocre. Phone, car, and laptop are also provided. Good work life balance at times, but be prepared to be a road warrior when needed.

    Cons

    "Too many cooks in the kitchen" with regards to their management. Trying to understand how all of the divisions are supposed to work together is impossible because no one really knows. Many divisions provide the same types of products, so their is a lot of internal strife that trickles down to the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of focusing on the bottom line and stock price, organize and prioritize your KPI's to control what you are capable of.

    Good benefits and stable company.

    Cons

    All decisions come out of corporate and are made mostly by people who are in charge because of where they live-not what they can do.

    Advice to Management

    Look around for leaders, don't assume that all leaders are born in Missouri.

    Pros

    Leggett & Platt is a large company that makes its employees feel like they are a family. The culture is definitely different than you would find in companies that are similarly sized. You are still you at Leggett & Platt and not just a number or an employee ID. Being a global company, there are numerous opportunities within the company worldwide. The people are genuinely friendly and you don't have to step on others to advance your career. As a matter of fact, that is frowned upon and would do just the opposite.

    Cons

    While most of the pockets of the company are technologically advanced, there are some that are lagging behind.

    Advice to Management

    Being a mainly B2B manufacturing company, the exposure to the Leggett & Platt name and brand is somewhat limited. Marketing initiatives to enhance familiarity with the company could be beneficial.
