    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

    Good people to work with throughout the company. The company is growing and continues to expect growth as the economy continues to rebound.

    Cons

    Very sales driven, with very little input from the field operations team. Senior management has an agenda that doesn't always mesh with reality in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Separate Distribution and Sales, with different executives over each who then report into the CEO. That makes the functions peers versus one always trumping the other.

    Pros

    Good, talented people all around.
    Company car for sales and management
    Nice headquarters building and campus with covered parking. Well secured.

    Cons

    Extremely resistant to change. They will implement ideas from outside, and then Lennoxize them until the idea has evaporated. Refuse to admit they made a mistake and will double and even triple down. There is a golden circle in the upper management and if you cross it, you're done- being right or doing the right thing doesn't matter.

    Advice to Management

    TDR- starting at the top, Tear Down and Rebuild. You have created an environment that insulates a very chosen few and blocks new ideas and talent from advancing the company in today's and tomorrow's competitive market.

    Pros

    Good people to work with
    Reasonable benefits
    Opportunity to grow

    Cons

    Management that is only concerned with the stock price
    Director who would say whatever it took to please the highest-ranking person in the room

    Advice to Management

    When hiring people -- especially management -- focus on getting the right type of person, one with integrity and honesty, not just the smoothest talker.

    Pros

    Friendly support staff, decent benifits after 30 days of employment, and a company car is provided from day one. Thats about it for the cons.

    Cons

    Very High preasure to increase sales. Not really concerned about current customers, the push is always for new business. They are loosing long term customers over it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on loyal customers and grow that business rather then sign up every Tom, ick, and Harry.
