Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Rockleigh, NJ
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Rockleigh, NJ

Pros

1, Flat organizationm not many layers of management. There are no assistant sitting outside the offices of CEO and CTO!
2. Founder is engineer, is willing to investment on technology and engineers. You always use the latest technology
3. Stable, no layoff. Actually expand dramatically during recession.
4. Market leader, very expensive products and good profit margin.
5. Good pay and good benefits($50/month for whole family insurance)
6. No one bothers you. You just finish your work and go home.

Cons

1. No culture. You just work and go home.
2. No social. You only know the people you have worked with. And it is designed to let you work with small number of people(yes, it is quite efficient)
3. No change. No rotation. You will work on the same project/product for 10 years.
3. Poor management. Many managers/directors/project managers were promoted simply because they have been in company for long. They do not have the talent and training to be good leader. And when they become managers, they promote even less competent..... Management often is the weakest link in a team.
4. Unpredictable future after the founder retires.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Hire some people from business side. Time to jump out of the engineering box.
2. Time to hire more junior engineers. Do not let senior engineers performing junior daily jobs.
3. Setup rotation programs.
4. Send the managers to some training.

    Pros

    Growth, Niche products and a market for itself. Global and Private organization. No debt. Fantastic immediate supervisors. My experience so far , go through the proper channels to get your message across.

    Cons

    Despite the size of the organization, this is a still a growing company. There are growing pains that come with being a part of Crestron, if you are not open minded and patient you will be disheartened pretty quickly.
