    I have been working at Lutron full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - population of young professionals is dominant and the work environment is very supportive
    - lots of chances to review your work to avoid pitfalls in your design, validation, implementation,etc
    - casual work place so it is very easy to get to know other people and learn from them
    - social activities with colleagues is always an option, some organized by clubs at the company, others that different individuals organize based on their interest
    - training is always provided and there is a small department dedicated for the internal education opportunities for professional development

    Cons

    - technical training is not rigorous so you have to be comfortable reaching out to experienced engineers for help and support
    - limited travel opportunities for a new engineer unless you are a manufacturing engineer
    - you are expected to be at the office 8-5 on work days and working from home is not an option for most employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - boost the technical program for the different disciplines based on what the new engineers use most to fulfill their daily respnsibilities
    - encourage morale boosters and provide a budget for it

    Project Electrical Engineer - Analog Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Lutron in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Dropped my resume off at my school's career fair, heard back from them that night and scheduled an interview with them for the next day in my school's career office. Was mostly a techincal interview, asking about power electronics. Be able to explain DC to DC conversion, covering resistor dividers, voltage regulators, and buck and boost converters. Make sure you can say when you'd want to use a voltage reg versus a buck converter and vice versa, ( think voltage dissipation issues for the reg!).
    I was contacted the next day and told that I had passed the first round and would be moving onto the final round of interviews.
    Final Round Interview
    7 to 8 hour all day process. You will have multiple interviewers who will keep you on your toes.
    I personally had, and in this order:
    1. Behavioral interview, 1v1 standard walking through your resume
    2. Technical interview, I had the same 2 questions as the hpast two reviews mentioned, light bulb in series, and a PNP (NOT npn), transistor with a cap at the base. Vo(0-)=-10, Vo(0+)dv/dt, Vo(infinity)= 0.7 (due to the diode drop).
    3. Case Interview, 1v1, surprising but be prepared to think on your feet and walk through your assumptions. If you see something wrong with your result for a market size, re-look your assumptions and evaluate which ones you might need to change.
    4. Lunch, 1v1 : had lunch with an employee and got a tour of their facilities.
    5. Role-play interview 2v1: You're put into the shoes of a new engineer who has to take care of a customer call. I'd really suggest keeping track of time, which got me in the end.
    6 &7. Behavioral Interviews 1v1: teh first one was a skype interview with an executive where he asked me about my resume, and when I said I wanted to do analog, he made sure I knew the ideal and non-ideal op amp properties. the last interview was a short meeting with a HR exec.
    As of right now I'm waiting to hear back
