The most mismanaged company I have worked for.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Coopersburg, PA

I have been working at Lutron as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThe management is clueless so you can basically work at your own pace or skill level.

ConsThe management is clueless and basically comprised of old timers who were with the company from the beginning and when they mess up in one department are not fired but just moved to a new one to mess up and rather then hire permanent employees they rely heavily on temp workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire some full time employees and don't be afraid to fire some managers and non productive employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Experiencing a toxic work environment will make you cherish your future company.

I worked at Lutron

Pros-The cafeteria is pretty good.
-It has a gym.
-Paychecks arrive on time.
-There is a pond on the property.

Cons-The company is dominated by engineers and salespeople. The engineers rely on salespeople to make business decisions. This leads to short-sighted sales initiatives and incompetent sales people being put in leadership positions. Anyone with real leadership skills or experience is marginalized and eventually leaves the company.
-Lutron products were state-of-the-art in the 90s. They have not kept up with competition as technology advances.
-The senior leadership is older than your grandparents. They run the company how your grandparents would.
-Cramped, overcrowded cubicles are the norm. Nobody gets an office until they reach VP, if then. And you need to be a senior citizen to reach VP. Or an incompetent salesperson.
-Total lack of diversity. All VP and above are white men. Little to no diversity in any department.
-Don't drink the water.
-The Lehigh Valley is not a great place to relocate to. It is a depressing, post-industrial place inhabited by depressing, post-industrial people.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your employees, encourage initiative, compensate equitably. This may help your turnover problem!
