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

    Pros

    My position at least paid quite well

    Cons

    HR runs the show and are scary, oppressive people, and the place reeks of fear. Cliques form, especially in marketing, people hired and fired for all the wrong reasons, manipulative. Cult-like. Creepy is the one word I'd use for the business and the people running it.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you're good at -- management isn't it.

    I worked at Extron Electronics (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers, great atmosphere but sometimes there are no free lunches. I like they way they have extra long lunch hours and ping pong tables that you can play all day.

    Cons

    The management is not very smart and the bosses looks stuck up, they don't listen to the employees and only care about themselves, they should fire themselves first to save the company.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself first, then get a new batch of new blood to run the company, get rid of the old and the useless that just sucks up the resources and you will be ok.

    Management is great. It can be a little tough at times, but is nesesary for the success of a company this size.

    I worked at Extron Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good entry level job for someone with little to no I.T. experience. Pretty good benefits and pay. Large and stable company. Flexible work schedule. O/T very rarely required. Dress is business casual. There were some cool co-workers there.

    Cons

    If you're not promoted within a couple of years from this position, take it as a hint that it's not going to happen. Once learned, the tasks and duties become dull and tedious with little opportunity to do anything interesting. Horribly inefficient work flow for publishing content to the web site. Web content specialists are caught between product marketing department and senior management. If deadlines are not met as a result of their actions or lack of, YOU and only YOU will be held accountable. Rather than fixing the obvious and streamlining the process, the standard response to the web content specialists is that they need to be more "proactive" in order to meet deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    To be more communicative to ALL employees regarding issues involving the department, not just a select few. Need to be more appreciative and supportive of ALL employees regarding employee career development goals. An improved work flow would make this job's tasks easier and less stressful to complete on a timely basis. My advice to future web content specialists would be to put in a couple of years there, learn what you can, then get out. If you stay any longer your skill set WILL stagnate and this will affect your future marketability and earnings potential.
