    The facility and the environment are great. Having a team of colleagues and managers so invested in promoting you and the company is a breath of fresh air in a corporate environment. Working with great engineers, on the edge of IoT technology is an exciting place to spend your days! I look forward to the next update, project, product, partnership, etc every day!

    Parking can be a bit of a drag during busy times of the year in the city.

    I have been working at Leviton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    First off, the work isn't about developing boring business applications or something of the like. It's about software that tells Leviton products to DO stuff. It's a metaphysical link from the software to the real world. Seeing a state change in the UI followed by a physical device reacting is VERY satisfying (to me at least). I love the work we do because it's geared towards making peoples lives easier.

    Secondly, the community at our workplace is incredibly friendly and open. You can always reach out to anyone if you're stuck on an issue, and there's rarely any fire-chasing going on.

    And Lastly, the management at the NOLA location are seasoned engineers. I think this is what makes our engineering department great, instead of just "good enough." They usually understand what kind of effort and time it will take to make a product, which has led to less fire-chasing (as stated earlier).

    Cons

    Some of our other business units will occasionally reach out to us for some sort of "contract" work, which is usually deadline-driven. The deadlines they set almost always inaccurately estimate the development time of the product they wish to make. Luckily, this does not happen all that often and only a select few BU's have this mentality.

    Advice to Management

    The deadline-driven development mentioned above has gotten better over the years, but I think the company needs to do a better job reining in its product managers as far as deadlines and customer promises are concerned.

    Doing some of the coolest work in one of the coolest workspaces in New Orleans.

    Cons

    Sometimes company can be slow to act.

    Pros

    Great company to work for that has a really bright future ahead of it due to its recent success in the rapidly growing industry of IoT and Smart Home Technology. At Leviton (Nola) there is an excellent opportunity for potential growth not just in skills but in position, and the management is very supportive. Overall, a great work environment with friendly people, good benefits, and plenty of perks.

    Cons

    Due to the rapid growth of Leviton (Nola) and the IoT Industry as a whole, there has been a strain on engineering resources so there's no lack of work day-to-day and you rarely find a dull moment. On the flip side, this gives each engineer a sense of real importance and great potential to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more engineers.

    I have been working at Leviton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working for Leviton for 25 years since graduating college. To work for the same company for that length of time in this day and age should show any prospective employee how great the company is to work for. The location is great right off of the LIE, the cafeteria is phenomenal, the pay is very fair but the most important piece are my fellow employees. We all work together on a common goal to make Leviton successful.

    Cons

    There really aren't any day to day "cons". The work can get stressful since deadlines must be adhered to but to be successful at anything, you must have goals in place.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep on ensuring that employees are the #1 asset to the company.

    Pros

    A company almost devoid of internal politics that focuses its efforts to serving and delighting customers.

    Cons

    Sometimes waffles on whether or not to be in specific markets or verticals

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction of being first to market with innovative products
