Pros

Good opportunities for advancement for those willing to work hard, good support for taking on new challenges and other lateral movement

Cons

Private ownership can be erratic and unpredictable, low level of respect, trust and honesty between upper management and general employees.

Advice to Management

Building trust and respect between levels of management will be a key as the company continues to grow. A more quantitative approach to project evaluation is also important.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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