    I have been working at Leggett & Platt

    Pros

    Large company with many locations in North America. In many cases you don't even know Leggett & Platt is in your area because they have aquired a small company and didn't change the name. The easiest way to find locations is through the website.

    Cons

    Each branch is more or less independent. The quality of the management team at the branch can make or break your satisfaction with the location. When aquired, typically incumbant management teams are left in place. When the new branch is 'Leggettized', it may adapt well or it may not. If it's a family run business and the family moves on, the 'talent' that replaces them may not be the right fit.

    Pros

    Quarterly bonuses, paid holidays and you only work 15 days out of the month.

    Cons

    They rank by seniority so if you want a different position you have to have the most seniority to be able to get it.
