    I worked at Crestron Electronics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a Firmware Engineering intern for a summer at Crestron.
    The company culture is great, and they provide a lot of autonomy within your position. They give you interesting and fulfilling projects to work on, and allow for a lot of freedom is sampling different roles within the company.

    Cons

    Low pay for interns relative to other companies. This used to be offset by housing arrangements, but that is no longer provided.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your interns better, or give them temporary housing for the internship. $14 an hour is barely enough to cover living expenses, and less well-off interns find it challenging to afford to work here for the summer.

    Pros

    The people at Crestron are very helpful. Hours are pretty flexible. Crestron is trying to grow and has been growing a lot, so they are very motivated and willing to help each other. The products that they have are very cool and although I was pushed to do a lot of work, it was a great learning experience.

    Cons

    There seems to be some difficulty with mobility within the company. As an intern, the pay was a bit low.

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

    Pros

    Pay is fair at the beginning. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Toxic management, do not care about the employees well being only getting the callas answered. Manager showing favoritism to a select few. Expecting more work responsibilities comparable to a Level 2 agent without an increase in pay. Increasing insurance cost and decreasing benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Get a true work life balance policy in place that does not bundle all paid time off into one bucket. Do not penalize your employees when they take time off due to illness, or death of a family member. Also give fair pay increases to cover the rising cost of insurance and decrease in benefit amounts. By not doing so your employees are taking home less money each year. The company also needs to be profit sharing with its employees instead of stuff the executives pockets.

    Pros

    HR is working very hard to make this a more fun place to work and offer more onsite benefits like gym, medical, dental, and carnival day.

    Cons

    Would be better if they payed people a competitive wage instead.
    Doesn't make a difference if management doesn't care about employees.
    Don't work in the Engineering/Architecture Design department.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees at least half as much as you care about deadlines.
