    I have been working at Lennox full-time

    Pros

    Stable industry
    Big company
    Good benefits
    Teamwork
    Work-life balance

    Cons

    All Senior management is male-dominated
    No advancement opportunities
    Impossible to transition from a Senior to Manager
    Salary ranges for each position are huge so pay is often unfair (people with low responsibilities making way more than they should)
    Low performers get moved around to other departments instead of being fired (and with that comes a pay increase)
    Management is very top heavy (not many lower level people that actually do stuff)
    Needed low level positions are not added in lieu of unnecessary new management jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim management and add more low level positions
    Promote women
    Promote people that can actually do stuff and get rid of the "fat"
    Review compensation so it's fairly matched with people's skills and performance

    Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer III in Dallas, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    This is my 3rd engineering job. When I took the position here I planned on leaving after about 5 years. I've been here 10 months, and this is by far the best job I have had. I have not had a bad day at work. I feel like my work makes a global impact, and its not just a quick money scheme like a previous job. This job is hands on. I design, I test in the lab, we train at the factory, we keep up with marketing through out the life of the product. I never work overtime, unless I want to.

    Cons

    Occasionally equipment needed is not there. But I there is no limit to a price if you can justify the use.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is good. They make us feel appreciated. Cake every month.

    Pros

    They don't track vacation or time-off in IT so many employees benefit by the lack of oversight in this area,

    Cons

    Low pay - raises are usually 1 to 2 % per year if you are lucky. IT management are out of touch with what's happening in the rest of the IT world. IT jobs being moved to India as fast as they can move them. Most systems are old and out of date - needing to be upgraded but can't get approval for upgrades because lack of funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT Exec management needs to be re-organized and changes made. They are all long time IT employees who have never worked anywhere else and have no idea what's happening in the rest of the IT world.
