Pros

Its a great place to start working after college and they have a great salary/benefits package and support former Coops and interns very well. Team based work is predominant, and employees generally work well together. There is a lot of room to move around (both horizontally to other business units) and vertically (into lower management). Further education is encouraged, especially through in house classes by local educators.

Cons

It is a younger company. Many in the lower management are less than 30 years old, which could affect some of the relationships with older employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a private company, it can be difficult to effectively communicate how the company is doing with the current economy. Remain as open as you can, especially to employees.

    A review of Lutron Electronics from February of 2009

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Lutron Electronics is its workforce - the company features very talented employees and competitive starting salaries. The company also features a relatively flat org. structure. If you happen to be an engineer, you are quite popular it this company and will find plenty of like-minded people. Also, the average age of the company is fairly low, under thirty, and many of its employees are good people.

    Cons

    Although starting salaries are fairly competitive, raises are less so once in the company. The company has a fairly rigid, traditional culture where "game-players" can prosper over those who do things the right way and don't cut corners. If you don't happen to be an engineer, you may find your area of the company to be somewhat slighted, belittled, or otherwise neglected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If it's broke, fix it, even if a really important person didn't think of it first.

    Pros

    Lutron is a thriving company, with a large range of products. There are plenty of new projects at a time, with opportunities for meaningful input and design. The location in the Lehigh Valley keeps housing within a reasonable commuting distance. The benefits are great, especially medical. Most everyone is friendly, and willing to show you what they are working on, and the direction new products are going.

    Cons

    Lutron has a fairly tight information culture. Many things are not to be spoken about. People often work long hous. Customer communication is tightly controlled, and many times documentation is incomplete or missing. Lutron tends to be very conservative when planning IT upgrades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the profits coming. Find ways to exploit a coming slowdown for growth.
