    I worked at Lutron full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lutron does a great job at hiring excellent engineers, training them, giving them lots of experience quickly, and trying to advance them through the ranks. However, the raises and morale issues there are causing a lot of turnaround. I recommend giving some serious effort and thought to keeping on younger employees.

    Project Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Lutron.

    Interview Details

    Be ready for a full day with every single type of interview question thrown your way. You'll go through a technical question, personality interview, imagination session, role play session, company tour, and, often times, a conversation with a senior manager at the company. Always be on your toes, ask lots of questions, and be sure you've done your research before showing up.

    Interview Questions
    • The role play was the most difficult. I had to "troubleshoot" an issue with two engineers acting as whomever I needed to invoke. They could serve as my manager and answer questions; the field service engineer who could provide details; and really anybody else I needed.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They don't really negotiate and they tell you this openly. The offer was fair, though, so I happily accepted.
