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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Do very little work for what is paid, but this can also get boring some days.
    Depending on you boss, time off it easy to get with one or two days notice.
    Fairly laid back place to work, as you show up to work everyday, you will have a job.
    Always looking for new ways of doing everything, not matter how stange it might sound at first.
    Pride in work it really high by everyone, if there is a issue you can see it in everyone's face, till it is fixed or corrected.
    Everyday is different, work place is always changing

    Cons

    Communication is something that Lutron does not have, but we will say we do but do nothing ever about it.
    Raise are $25 a week every year. If you bend over backward often, all you get is a "thanks", get the same raise as someone who shows up everyday.
    Everyday you hear two different side of what should be done of how should it be done, and it can change at anytime. then they ask why did you not know this.
    People get moved around alot, if you are at one job for more then 2 years, you are lucky, most move around every year or so.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of saying we have a communication issue do something about it.
