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

    Pros

    I enjoy doing what I do here at Leviton.
    So much to learn when it come to the machines and size of the plant means there are a lot of them.
    Mixture of old and new electronics makes it challenging and fun learn

    Cons

    Management does not care about employers value
    New rules come out every other week
    The place is monitored and watching you all the time
    Pay is just okay
    Hours vary, one week they are working you to death with 50 to 60 hours then the next week you are barely working 40.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and take note from your employers because before you know it they'll be seeking jobs elsewhere. I know jobs can always be replaced but people who have been here more than 3 decades; that knowledge is hard to regain.

    Good as a starting company out of school

    Take notice of your value employees and reward them accordingly so they don't jump ship.

    Pros

    Great people. Family owned business for 110 years that truly care about their employees. Strong understanding of the marketplace. Growing company both organically and through acquisitions.

    Cons

    Like any other company, communication can be a challenge. Things have greatly improved and continue every year. No other cons.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Good benefits, they show that they appreciate their employees. Good hours too. Not many companies left where you can work 9-5. Most are now 8-6

    Cons

    Some managers tend to block creative ideas. But I found that if you just do what they ask and then give them a more creative option as well, they are more likely to consider both options. I've also heard rumors that since Mr. Leviton passed away, the company is not as great as it used to be. But I don't know for sure since I'm no longer there.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you keep treating your employees well! Keep Mr. Leviton in mind when you make those decisions. I always felt appreciated and was sad to leave. (I left to be a full time mom)
