Promotions never happen

Engineer (Former Employee)
Draper, UT

I worked at Control4 full-time for more than 3 years

ProsInnovative products
Great coworkers
Freedom to innovate

ConsPromotions promised over and over but never actually happen. much upper management lives out of state and commute in making them less accessible and less in touch with actual on the floor issues. Many talented engineers have left because of these exact issues. They also don't pay high enough salaries, especially considering what they expect in terms of hours during crunch times. For a modern tech company, the employee atmosphere is much more Dark Ages.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your word, promote internally, offer a truly competitive salary.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Promises not kept

Test Engineer (Former Employee)
Draper, UT

I worked at Control4 full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCool product
Cutting-edge technology
Relaxed work environment

ConsMiddle management issues. Promotions promised to many; given to few - has caused significant turnover with talented engineers. Control4 is a lot of talk, a lot less action. Beware if you're hoping to move forward in your career.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep your word. Promote from within. Realize that talented engineers don't grow on trees. Work harder to keep employee loyalty and morale up. They also don't pay as well as they could or should.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A Good Start

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Draper, UT

I have been working at Control4

ProsControl4 has a good start on employee satisfaction and they are working toward improving this. There are many benefits offered including a good health plan with 100% coverage for employee

ConsUpward mobility at Control4 is extremely limited. The organization is relatively flat and jumping from one level to another inside the company is nearly impossible.

Advice to Senior ManagementControl4 needs to implement development programs for employees to allow them to gain upward mobility at the company, thereby increasing loyalty. In addition, some time of education would be valuable in keeping employees engaged and growing from the youngest to the oldest. Too many people here are stagnated or have come here to die in their career.
