    I have been working at Control4 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have a very comfortable workplace and also I have good colleagues. Sometimes the company provides us free food. And we attend some activities as well.

    Cons

    I don't see a very bright future of myself, but if you come here, please be more specific on the way you choose. Choose from Audio / Video, HVAC cloud service or security.

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

    Pros

    Innovative products
    Great coworkers
    Freedom to innovate

    Cons

    Promotions 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep your word, promote internally, offer a truly competitive salary.

    Pros

    Cool product
    Cutting-edge technology
    Relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Middle 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    I have been working at Control4

    Pros

    Control4 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

    Cons

    Upward 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 ManagementAdvice

    Control4 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.

    Pros

    Laid-back peers, solid background for upper and senior management.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional QA group, can be noisy in the office, sometimes people get annoying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they need an on-site QA manager for the Santa Clara office.
