    Current Employee - Embedded Software Engineer

    I have been working at Extron Electronics full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - I enjoy what I do.
    - Co-workers are great, office setting is clean, friendly, and professional.
    - All necessary equipment is available, and they purchased some very expensive test equipment as soon as a need arose (we had one unit, but sharing was becoming cumbersome).
    - Overtime is paid for engineers on high priority projects (1x time, but there are some caveats. If you regularly work 50+ hours, this will work out very well for you).
    - Dress code just changed (Now, you can wear jeans, collared shirts can be un-tucked, facial hair is allowed, and tattoos and piercings are allowed - for non-managers)

    Cons

    - This is not the main site, and it could use a few upgraded amenities (Vending machine and Coffee station for example!)
    - You cannot work remotely, and vacation time is limited, which can be cumbersome.
    - Clock in/out system. Need to call a hotline if you are excessively late or absent for the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything seems to be running very well. I would say, focus on employee retention by continuing to recognize milestones and accomplishment of goals. I think the change to dress code was a good idea, and should improve overall employee satisfaction.

    Sales Support Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Extron Electronics.

    Interview Details

    I contacted a recruiter about a position posted on his website. He contacted the company, who requested I come in for an interview. The interview was held at Extron's building in Raleigh. I was asked to fill out a standard form while waiting for my interview to begin. I sat in a small conference room off of the lobby to fill out the application. After I had finished, I was moved to another room where I interviewed remotely with an interviewer in California. I then moved back to the original room I was in and interviewed with the HR person. I never saw more than a conference room and the lobby. The company is very upfront about their policies and benefits.

    In regards to the reviews about clocking in and clocking out - they do request that all employees clock in and out. The explanation I was given was they respect a home/life balance and don't want their employees working too much. They want 40 hours a week and then want their employees to go home and enjoy their lives. There is no working from home, all work is done at the office.
