    I worked at Crestron Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great design and products. Profitable portfolio. Engineering opportunities to expand product line. Procurement and Logistics drives costs down to help profits soar.

    Cons

    Management is inconsistent. No strategy or plan, satisfied to put out fires and gleam the effectiveness of the profitability with little to no effort by management. Constant change with no plan to improve, especially manufacturing. No investment in people, constant negative pitting one another against each other. No succession planning. Dishonest, disloyal, negative fear tactics used to manage.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to spend more time evaluating his core team. Needs to clean up the house a bit and bring in top talent that wants to run a company off hard work versus riding the profitability of good products to put less effort in actually running the company, especially manufacturing department. The management takes credit for what the people actually working do, and cast an untrue shadow of blame over the true talent only to gain more for the few that don't have the actual talent.

    Growing faster than they can hire.

    Pros

    I have been with the company for three years within two different departments because of promotions. Executive and Senior management has goals and succession plans for all of their employees. Managers know their stuff which allows us as employee to constantly evolve in our careers. The growth and advancement levels are surprisingly high as the company continue to grow in gross profits. Co workers are always their to help and work as a team to meet a goal, deadline, or just to lend a helping hand. The products and technology are amazing and Crestron will always be an industry leader. The company offers full benefit coverage with very low deductibles, and you receive three weeks of paid vacation per year! The company will never carry debt so the environment and job security is very stable. I highly recommend Crestron to all!

    Cons

    Not many negatives or downsides of Crestron. Due too constant innovation and growth, departments can become short staffed which increases work load but this is due to the demand for skilled workers and manufacturing employees in a growing environment. I believe Crestron should come up with ways to get the company together such as possible company outings etc to increase work morale.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to continue growing the organization and create plans for the employees to continually contribute,grow and advance within the great organization. Listen to employee suggestions because they are working and innovating the products at the first stage implementation.

    Pros

    I am a public relations/social media summer intern in the marketing department at Crestron Electronics in Rockleigh, New Jersey. I am currently in their 12-week summer internship program, entering my third week. This company has welcomed the interns with open arms and made this experience truly memorable. I am already working on projects that I feel will help me grow in my future studies and career. Crestron truly invests in their future workforce and are extremely supportive. On my first day, I was given the opportunity to write a press release and prepare to interview top executives in the company. I was able to utilize skills I attained in school, while learning interpersonal skills through work with my mentor. Since starting my internship, I have continued to get endless opportunities. I have had my drafts posted to company social media pages, conducted countless interviews, gone to off-site events, met various company managers and executives, drafted case studies, and more. This is a company that really cares about their interns and makes sure that they get hands on experience they need before entering the workforce. Overall this company is a great place filled with very intelligent people who love to connect and encourage their employees as well as the interns.

    Cons

    Parking can be a hassle but I do believe they are building another parking lot for employees. Problem Solved!
