  3. I have been working at Lutron

    Pros

    For those that want to grow and explore new, exciting opportunities throughout their career, Lutron is the place. Before I came to Lutron, I would got bored and left companies about every four years. Their career paths were very linear and jumping to another path was nearly impossible. I thrive on change and constantly trying to improve my performance, the performance of my group, and the company as a whole. Lutron has given me the opportunity to take on many different roles, gain new skills/knowledge, take graduate classes, drive change, and contribute to the success of my group and company. I have seen people in their 20's get to work in foreign countries, develop expertise in their vocation, and take on leadership roles. Employees rarely stay in one area of the company over the course of their careers. They become well-rounded and knowledgeable about Lutron's business through customer interaction, rotational assignments, developmental opportunities, and higher levels of responsibility.
    Overall the company stands by its employees and strives to be fair and equitable in all decisions.

    Cons

    No company is perfect. I always look for a company with many more pluses than minuses. Lutron has a very strong culture and it is not for everyone. Whenever you work at a company that is focused on winning and hires exceptionally smart, passionate people, the standards are high. It values hard work, passion, and innovation. There is an expectation that you will do whatever it takes to win and meet the customer's needs. People at all levels are expected to pitch in and help out when needed, whatever the task. Not everyone wants to work in a place that has really high expectations of personal commitment, but prefer companies that have structured job responsibilities and a clear line between work/home. Lutron does not, but that is why the company has so many years of success behind it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer employees multiple ways to grow, challenge themselves, and contribute to the overall success of the company.

    I have been working at Lutron full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - population of young professionals is dominant and the work environment is very supportive
    - lots of chances to review your work to avoid pitfalls in your design, validation, implementation,etc
    - casual work place so it is very easy to get to know other people and learn from them
    - social activities with colleagues is always an option, some organized by clubs at the company, others that different individuals organize based on their interest
    - training is always provided and there is a small department dedicated for the internal education opportunities for professional development

    Cons

    - technical training is not rigorous so you have to be comfortable reaching out to experienced engineers for help and support
    - limited travel opportunities for a new engineer unless you are a manufacturing engineer
    - you are expected to be at the office 8-5 on work days and working from home is not an option for most employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - boost the technical program for the different disciplines based on what the new engineers use most to fulfill their daily respnsibilities
    - encourage morale boosters and provide a budget for it

    I worked at Lutron as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Substantial projects are given to co-ops. However, there will be some trivial tasks as well that are to be expected. People are generally very friendly and helpful. Most people are good at what they do. There are always new and interesting products being developed.

    Cons

    Somewhat uninteresting location. A little too conservative and old fashioned in some ways. May encounter some people who are not willing to embrace newer technology or better/simpler ways of doing things.

    I have been working at Lutron as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of cooperation within the company and decisions are made with long-term focus. Full-time employees enjoy a lot of flexibility to develop their career into fields they like.

    Cons

    The company hire a lot of contractors and may lay off them easily. The way to maintain good benefits for full-time employees kind of relies on treating contractors fairly poorly.
