    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.

    I have been working at Leggett & Platt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people in this company are some of the best you'll ever meet. A culture of hard work, integrity, honesty, and genuine friendliness is exhibited from company leadership. My role is challenging and dynamic, and it allows me to think creatively every day. I enjoy coming to work.

    Cons

    Employee development is still a somewhat newer practice in many areas. If you want to be developed, you should ask for it. However, many managers seem to be embracing mentoring and developing their employees - even more than several years ago.

    Good pay for good work ethics.

    No respect for seniority, and did not reward faithful employees, neither advanced them to higher levels in the company.

    Let long time employees advance.

    I worked at Leggett & Platt full-time

    Pros

    -Good paying job
    -Lower level supervisors are very easy to work for, as long as your attendance is good
    -High octane/fast paced workplace, you will always leave work tired and sore. Which for me at the time was a good thing.

    Cons

    -Very cut throat
    -Don't care too much about you as an individual, only care about themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Respect each and every employee.

    I have been working at Leggett & Platt full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Some departments are very kind and courteous, Decent pay.

    Cons

    My department was a mess, no real order, very little information on projects, communication was minimal, upper management does not care about employees health.

    Advice to Management

    Interact more with your employees, ask them how they are doing and make an effort to know them. If something is being done wrong then the employee needs to know and not just hope that they fix it. How are they suppose to fix problems when they do not know there is one.
