    Alot of unknowns

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Richardson, TX (US)

    ProsYour colleagues for the most part are okay

    ConsManagement has the slightest clue what their employees actually do.
    The insurance is the absolute worst you have to pay for so much they only have high deductible plans
    Pay is very, very low end for the amount of work they want you to do
    Rather than compensate their employees effectively they spend more money on golf and other weird things such as trips and etc
    Not much room to advance in the company you don't move unless someone retires
    Low morale

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake it more about your employees, if they are happy then the morale will increase and therefore there will be greater productivity. Also do not place individuals that are not qualified to be in a management position. They may look good on paper but being absolute clueless when their employees have a question doesn't really help much

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company to work for if you look stability and hour flexibility

    Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Richardson, TX (US)

    ProsFlexible work hours and very good leadership

    ConsGetting promotions are difficult and and when new job opportunities come up they already have someone picked out for the position before even posting it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are great people leaving the company and most of them leave for the same reason (lack of opportunities to advance their careers).

    Good experience even through numerous cutbacks

    Director (Former Employee) Richardson, TX (US)

    ProsVery friendly employees and environment. Most folks are supportive of one another. Benefits are ok and the director level and above positions are eligible for bonus. If it is a good sales year, then it can be lucrative. I made a lot of friends there and that is what I looked forward to when I went to work. I also had a supportive manager but not everyone did.

    ConsCutbacks and cost cutting measures. Everyone is doing more work with less people and staff. Eye is always on bottom line sales and what to say to investors. Male dominant company - few women get promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees, not just managers. Recognition goes a long way. Promote women. Reputation is that it is a boys club.

    As an Mechanical Intern at Lennox I have learned, gained, and experienced many things. Great company.

    Mechanical Engineer Intern (Current Employee) Carrollton, TX (US)

    ProsWork 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.

    ConsTraffic 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Opportunities for Improvement

    Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee) Richardson, TX (US)

    ProsLennox is an old company who does well at keeping up with current trends in the industry in terms of products.

    ConsWith old processes that are long overdue for automation, many times they end up behind the curve in their back office which slows them down overall. Also, they have a huge amount of finance people at the "Senior Analyst" level who aren't being groomed to move forward and opportunities at the next level are sparse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest real time and effort (money) in Lean practices and follow through on process changes. Also, work on grooming from within and creating opportunities for employees. Stop putting high value people in low value roles.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Supply Chain Analyst

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood opportunity to work with different tools in SCL

    ConsIn the beginning stage of the transition to an innovative company
