Pros

Nothing is good at Extron. Even the annual company picnic is mandatory. Medical plans have 3-4 choices, not bad. Some bosses are ok, while most are not. Employees are mostly friendly. Location is good, close to restaurants, not far from I-5 freeway.

Cons

Low pay. Open work spaces, no privacy. Lack of communications between departments. No respect to employees. The owner of the company heavily involves in daily operations and makes all the decisions.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees.

    Pros

    Great training program if you are actually allotted time to finish it
    Good salary base
    High end equipment at your disposal

    Cons

    Employees are over worked
    Management does not seem to care about a balance between employee work and personal life you are expected to work round the clock and on weekends as well
    If you are let go they do not provide you with any reason
    Managers do not communicate with employees about their work
    Managers do not speak to employees even as a simple hello
    Force hour long lunch break unpaid
    Have to clock in and out and timed breaks

    Advice to Management

    Chill out let your employees do their job, and tell us if we are doing something wrong instead of kicking someone out the door without any given reason.

    Pros

    Good quality products.
    Professional Audio / Video products designed in the US (for the most part).
    Acceptable compensation for new graduates.
    Internal Training Program provides an overview of concepts for customer services reps.
    Employees that honestly represent the capabilities and limitations of the product.

    Cons

    Company has a spit personality. It appears there is little communication between sales and engineering. The products are good but could be better if ideas were not filtered through marketing.
    Most engineers at Extron enjoy their jobs, which cannot be said for "application engineers" that reside on the sales floor. When it is busy, there is a constant barrage of IMs and fire alarms (no joke) reminding you that other callers are waiting.
    The business software is ancient and the work pace is fast which leads to an increased chance of making a mistake.
    Poorly veiled fraternization that goes unchecked.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better! You will be surprised how much more productive a person can be when given a modicum of personal freedom. Give them a chance to excel. Reward those that take on greater responsibility and propose ideas that can increase productivity an offer the customer a better phone-support experience.
