    Good, not great

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Affordable and competitive health benefits Decent PTO Option for remote work depending on the position Long tenure of employees in most departments COVID safe policies for remote work/vaccines/masks throughout 2020-2022 Progressive CEO Polite and respectful atmosphere Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Longer-term employees face lower salaries with few options for promotions and growth Increasing turnover now that employees can get better-paying remote jobs outside of the Joplin area Very slow to react to employee feedback in regard to salary reviews, employee engagement, and inclusion efforts Diversity and inclusion efforts are far behind other companies of its size - there is a manager and a "committee" but after six months, no movement or visible changes Very few women or people of color in leadership roles, including at the executive/board level Almost no professional development training either by departments or corporate No training budgets for external certifications/training Salary increases not commiserate with inflation Low bonuses/merit raises despite high company performance No work-from-home stipend Little bit of a micromanagment culture in the IT department

    Big company. Small minded

    Pros

    They offer decent enough benefits in comparison to other companies.

    Cons

    They treat people as standardly as possible and don't seem to keep in mind the employees well-being. Most of what they advertise is for looks only, and not taken into practice. They will do whatever they need to keep their Management's pockets full. I have never been so misled by a company. To see so many branches shut down and lay offs but no change in upper management bonuses.

    Company does not care about you.

    Pros

    It's easy. They provide lunch sometimes.Yay..

    Cons

    They change the schedule daily. They do not care if you are burned out or have plans this weekend. The day before Saturday comes they will come and say oh by the way you're working tomorrow. Have plans? Alright just don't come in and get an attendance point. They laid a ton of people off just to get rid of the people they don't like. Management does NOT care about their employees.

    Great Company to Work For

    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Normally with large corporations, you miss the inclusion aspect that most smaller companies naturally have, but Leggett & Platt is different. There are 140+ branches, yet each branch feels like they play a key role in the overall success of the company and branches are able to contribute ideas to the functions of the company. All upper management are welcoming and approachable, which is refreshing for a company this size. In addition to this, there is an open dialog about career opportunities within the company and that creates loyalty.

    Cons

    There are always trade offs to working for a great company and unfortunately, Leggett is not an exception to this. Compensation is something that there is room for improvement. In the past year, there have been some positive changes that have resulted in wage increases for certain roles to bring them closer to what other comparable positions pay in the area.
