    I have been working at Leggett & Platt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Night shifts are usually laid back, but still fairly productive. Also plenty of liberal allowences for personal projects, and interdepartmental training.

    Cons

    General disgruntled mood toward the company, and animosity toward other shifts on all crews. Little qualification required, and slim chance of consentual career advancement. Medium to low wages.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on poor atitudes and toxic lower management, also encourage a more fair distribution of labor / production requirements between shifts and departments.

    I have been working at Leggett & Platt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Got plenty of overtime. Sometimes more than I wanted.

    Cons

    Worked here a long time. Worked my way up and down and up again. New managers always meant some of us got booted down to make room for their own people. When they decided to close the plant we were all offered a decent severance package. When they decided they wanted to keep some of us for a new company they cut our pay and took the severance offer away.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the upper levels need to look at how people are being kicked around at the lower levels and ask themselves if they would want to be treated that way.

    Pros

    If one is looking for a stable job, with decent health insurance and want to live in the ozarks, Leggett & Platt is the company for you.

    Cons

    Don't expect any career growth in the company unless you are a legacy - Carthage boy/girl or son/daughter/partner of senior management or buddies with higher management. Don't get any recognition, even if you've saved the company millions of dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent and offer them opportunities to grow. Pay decent wages (market average at the very minimum). Improve workplace culture. Organize activities at all branches instead of just the corporate HQ.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good people. Upper management can be poor in some groups. Family oriented for salary employees, less so for hourly employees.

    Cons

    Still very much a good ole boys network, especially for upper managers. If you’re not a ‘name’ in Carthage, you won’t go too far.
