    I worked at Extron Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Location is about all that I can say anything positive about this company.

    Cons

    Abusive management. This company has turned into a cold corporate environment where the employees are treated poorly. Training is lacking, communication is poor, and salaried employees are made to work overtime for free even if there is nothing to do.

    I have been working at Extron Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good internal, in depth training program
    -Work/Life balance is good.
    -Good coworkers. Control team coworkers are a great bunch. Management not so much.
    -The work itself is easy but gets boring after a year.
    -Ultrasurf

    Cons

    Horrible management. Morale starts at the top and management is not afraid to express how unhappy they are. They have no concept or training of leadership or management. It's obvious they don't care about their job. There is a high turnover rate for employees here. The HR dept. here also needs much improvement. It's easy to stop caring after so many years here. Just look at all the disgruntled veterans.

    Advice to Management

    Train management to effectively manage. Work on team building. Actually care and lookout for your employees. We have lost good, talented people because management are not effective leaders.
