    Pros

    Lutron provided a rewarding internship experience, and can be a great starting point for careers in the engineering field.

    Cons

    Lutron sometimes seems to be unsure if it wants to have the culture of a large company or preserve the closely-knit feel it originated with under its founder. Middle to upper management was notoriously undefined in their specific roles.

    I have been working at Lutron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Good starting salary -Decent benefits -Most people are nice -Training is good -Products are at the top of their industry.

    Cons

    -Raises are ridiculous. -The longer you work at Lutron, the longer you are expected to work each day. There is no flexibility in the work hours so employees are required to be in at 8:00 AM and frequently forced to stay until 8:00 PM.. This is not a spoken of issue but not doing so will lead to you finding yourself behind on nearly everything. In other words, There is no work from home option even for embedded programmers the longer you work at Lutron, the less you get in return for your hard work. -At any given moment, engineers will stop everything for a speech from the 80+ year old owner to talk about profits. He's treated as if he's the high priest in our cult moreso than the owner and founder of the company. -Dress code is rather strict. -Everything is beige or grey. Literally everything is beige or grey. It's depressing. -Pretty much everyone there for over a year mentions that they're looking to leave the company. This seems to reflect on middle management who seem to be just as discontent. -Upper management is old and refuses to modernize the company. -The location is in the middle of nowhere.

    Pros

    Excellent training, good mentoring, good chances of promotion. The company philosophy includes caring for the employees and they do try to make good on it. Keeping in good contact with your supervisor is key to advancement. High starting salary.

    Cons

    The company is run by upper management that can make it quite difficult to keep up morale. Project guidance can be erratic if working directly with them, often leading to wasted work and cancelled projects. The company sometimes struggles with actually taking care of its employees. Raises are not sufficient. Rampant presenteism where leaving with less than 1 hour of OT per day can hurt your career independent of actual performance.

    Pros

    Gaining experience in AdobeSuite. Gain experience of a badly managed company and learn how to avoid such companies.

    Cons

    Incredibly poor upper management, lazy marketers who make the Graphic Designers do their work for them.

    I worked at Lutron full-time

    Pros

    It has already been said that the best thing about Lutron is the people. Regardless of your discipline, you will make close friends here, and you will have ample opportunity to grow your core skill set. For those who want to hit the ground running, Lutron is a great place to start a career - as the company relies heavily on new-hires to make key technical decisions in the company. Lutron rewards achievement, though you'll need to be willing to stand-up for yourself and be your own champion.

    Cons

    While new employees get ample opportunities to make real contributions, they also bear the brunt of insufficient upper management. Short-term strategies mean that work / life balance doesn't often factor into the equation -- crises flow down hill, and the company isn't shy about asking for copious uncompensated overtime from exempt employees. Lutron could be so much more than it is, and could attract and hold great talent if the atmosphere were less stressed and less repressed. Upper management could stand up for themselves and their employees -- but unfortunately it isn't the culture, and isn't likely to change before the regime. Anything and everything is subject to change at a moment's notice at managements' whim, often causing redundant effort and wasted time on "black hole" pet projects. Viable new ideas, visions, and strategies often get overlooked due to paranoia and a CYA approach that stems from trickle-down fear of the top management tier.

    "Impersonal work place"

    I have been working at Lutron

    Pros

    Perfect for a first job experience out of college, you'll find lots of other engineers who are in the same place as you are. You can learn a lot if you are a new engineer. If you perform, you won't have to worry about job security, the company has never layed-off any of its work force. Lots of opportunities to change position if you're an engineer, because of the size of the engineering department and the diversity of the projects.

    Cons

    You are expected to work overtime and week-ends to meet questionable project goals. A lot of engineers end up burning-out and go find better opportunities elsewhere in the industry. Lot of people leave after a few years. As such you are just a number, management will move you around with no real considerations of your personal interests. People don't say hello or goodbye, don't' seem to care much about others except when it is professional. As a result the atmosphere is very impersonal. With the crisis in the real estate market, management put more and more pressure on employees and one of their value "take care of the people" has just become a bumper sticker. The market Lutron is in is currently depressed. Unexperienced engineers are given responsibilities which often yield to disasters that you will be asked to solve after regular working hours and during week-ends to meet goals that are often questionable from a engineering or a business perspective. During one of my hiring interview, I was explained how Lutron doesn't want unions to get in, which I found a bit weird and not appropriate at the time. The owner is 70+ and still try to rein the management team, who is scared of him and will bow and cascade questionable engineering and business goals down the organization. The owner promotes a loose and ever changing organization to better control the company and the upper management. As a result there is few accountability.
