    I have been working at Lennox full-time (Less than a year)

    Great work/life balance. Management very knowledgeable and generous with their knowledge and time. Good benefits. Lots of opportunity to advance ones career. Lots of company sponsored activities. Most of the employees I've met are good people.

    Cons

    Some employees that have been here for a long time have adhered to bad habits and waste a lot of time.

    None. Keep up the good work

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Lennox has lots of opportunities to learn all different aspects of the HVAC industry. There is enough work to keep you busy, but not so much that you cannot learn a new skill set in the process. Management was always willing to work with everyone and was always encouraging attending school, classes or seminars. They always tried to be fair in their assements of employees. Everyone seemed to get along very well, not a lot of small groups plotting against one another or back stabbing going on. Overall it was a really pleasant place to work. I kick myself for leaving.

    Cons

    The work can be a bit predictable and some of the processes are slow

    Advice to Management

    Contiune to support and help your employees grow and develop their skills.

    Pros

    Lennox has a reputation for integrity, excellence, and quality. This is found in the development, manufacturing ad distribution of the Lennox products.

    Cons

    Within a larger corporation, some performance recognition and reward is lost. I do not have any additional negative feedback to provide.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice to management to provide.

    Pros

    Lennox has very good Medical Benefits compared to other companies in the HVAC industry.
    Training and learning are becoming more of a focus, which is great to be a part of.
    Good opportunities to grow with the company.

    Cons

    Lennox, like most large companies can lose sight of the individual. Sometimes people are left in positions just because of longevity, not because of their ability or expertise.

    Advice to Management

    It would be good for management, especially senior, to make sure all of their direct reports are really doing what is best for Lennox and their employees. Managers need to remember they work with people, not products.

    Pros

    Pretty conservative which means not easily affected by market fluctuations. They don't hire and fire admin staff just due to seasonal demand or lack thereof.

    Cons

    Not too many growth opportunities in terms of title/level. But then they also do not blindly create positions just to satisfy the whims of one.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job. Your positive attitude and keeping reasonable expectations, even in hyper market growth phases has kept this company a tight ship.

    I have been working at Lennox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Delivering results that meet or exceed goals is rewarded with trust, compensation, development for further opportunities, etc. Although the company has a significant global presence, it still has that small company, almost "family" feel, and the level of talent that each of my co-workers have, continually amazes me.

    Cons

    Like working at any of the HVACR companies, this business is closely tied to housing starts, commercial builds, and of course, the weather. So be prepared for lean times, and be ready to chip in and bear the burden of the down-cycles when they occur.

    Pros

    Work on your own schedule. Very easy going. Great people. Very nice. You will gain great experience. Pay for an intern is good. Everyone is very laid back.

    Cons

    Traffic driving here. Sometimes will get on to for things that are out of your control. Can be very picky at times and pushing you on completing things in an unrealistic times frame. There not much cons.
