    I have been working at Lennox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hours are standard.
    People to interact with.
    401K match up to 6%.
    Free coffee.
    Gym reimbursement.
    Donation matching for charities.

    Cons

    Minimal upward momentum through the company.
    Never expected a true pay raise. Annually all employees get 2-4% pay increase, but health insurance goes up 3-5% each year.
    Title can change, but don't expect to get a raise to match it. You're expected to be "grateful" for the 3% and twice as much work.
    Management is all Old School buddies from original Ohio plant, and don't care about anything except how you're making the company money.
    Experience outside of the company "doesn't count if it wasn't here."

    Advice to Management

    Listen when others compliment each other, and pay attention to all the projects people are doing, not just what You assign.
    It takes a lot of people to make a company this large float, and when 1/3 of your work force would leave in a days notice with another company, You alone won't be able to handle all the load.
    Listen, and hire Human Resources that will help and not roll their eyes and tell you to "deal with it" or "not expect everything right now", after working towards a goal for YEARS.
    Start better communication between All your facilities, not just the big boy in Texas, but Mexico, SC, and your other testing facilities. People don't care about others if they aren't from their facility, and Your company needs them to.

    Pros

    Providrs flexibility to work from home to fit with personal life demands that arise.

    Cons

    Medical insurance coverage lacks. In that the out of pocket is not worth monthly premiums. However is required to forego tax penalty.

    I worked at Lennox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    lots of presentations with free foods. HR tried to make company okay by holding lots of Employee appreciation day, presentations with foods, etc

    Cons

    Depending on your age and race, this maybe a good place or bad place for your career advancement. They are fond of young, 27-29 years millenials. If that's you, you have promotions ahead of you. If you are older and non white, you'll be stuck as Sr financial analyst forever. Very few minorities in the upper rank in the finance org. Once you hit certain age 60+, they force you to retire. Seen it too many times in the finance org.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't judge people's capabilities based on age/race. Even if you are already a financial analyst with Lennox, for you to move dept. is nearly impossible if you are beyond 35 years old. Interviews are formality. Hiring mgrs already make up their minds who they'll hire BEFORE posting internal jobs online. Don't bother.

    Pros

    Average benefits, flexible schedules. Great workplace.

    Cons

    Having to train people who eventually replace you. Offshoring.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire more from inside than outside. Company tends to hire from outside than to promote.

    I worked at Lennox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full benefits, great salary, company travel, and assistance to solidify a job per program completion. A great post grad job for the ideal candidate wanting to get their foot into sales.

    Cons

    Some associates had an advantage by starting 6 months prior. The extended knowledge was beneficial to all, but it could serve a greater purpose if the program was all on the same track.

    Advice to Management

    Hire classes with a set start date in mind for everyone. Begin the program for all in January or July. Don't cause a divide or learning curve.
