    I worked at Extron Electronics part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Tough to work with some management. Lets be honest, I've been working with them quite sometime and the controller is a real pain in the butt. If you can deal with who you work with then this will be great for you.

    Advice to Management

    To better control your turnover, treat your employees the way you wish to be treated.

    I have been working at Extron Electronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stable, average starting pay. Laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    The job itself becomes monotonous after a year. You deal with salespeople who will promise anything to the customer and you as an engineer has to come up with a solution after the fact. There is no movement upwards and raises are the minimal annual 2% inflation raises. Low morale environment.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to become actual managers. Instead of extensions of HR.

    I worked at Extron Electronics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great teammates Good work/life balance No after-hours work

    Cons

    Top executives lack vision and direction. They paid a consulting company lots of money to drive the development of a new product only to cancel it shortly before launch. Also flip-flopped on whether or not to sell a different version of that product even when customers were asking for it Wrong/incompetent people in key management roles Middle management is full of pencil pushers who have been conditioned to only do...

      Pros

      Coworkers were there for you when help was needed.

      Advice to Management

      Allow your people to be human and not robots.
