    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lutron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Working in the Coopersburg area, Lutron starts your salary decently high COL wise * Lutron does a lot of college recruiting, so lots of younger engineers * Very easy to make friends at Lutron through external activities like volleyball, soccer, grill outs, etc. * Direct supervisors seem to work very hard to promote their new engineers * You will definitely be assigned challenging projects and designs earlier on * Lutron will allow you to expense career and education growth opportunities including graduate school (you will still need to work full time though) * (Just for Coopersburg hires) Lehigh Valley is awesome and very close to other larger cities for easy weekend trips

    Cons

    * Sticks to the 8-5 work culture * Promotions appear to be time based rather than skill or merit based * Business Casual enforced for Software Engineers * Upper management is anti remote work * Does not significantly adjust scale pay based on COL of the area (Engineers in Coopersburg make only slightly less than their equivalents in a high COL area like Boston) * Management makes it very hard to resolve tech debt * Heavy dependency on external contractors which has made some of the older code difficult to manage * Very bad Maternity leave and practically non-existent Paternity leave

    Long work hours and a lot of work placed on your shoulders. Sometimes slow to promote.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Lutron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High salary, good people, made a lot of friends

    Cons

    Too many empty promises and lies (“you can switch to a new discipline if you’re interested in it”, “we never fire anyone”). Resistant to change, which is visible in the antiquated office, lack of diversity (less than 10% woman in engineering, maybe 1 black person), and maternity leave policy.

    I worked at Lutron full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The coworkers are some of the most brilliant people I've ever met. Benefits are fantastic and include dental coverage, life insurance, health insurance, and a 401k. Night shift management appear to be good people.

    Cons

    There is alot of bigotry on day shift. The environment is full of fingerpointers if you're not careful. There's a lack of understanding of mental health and a lack of care taken to protect the employee. An employee's destiny within the company is predetermined within the first few months. If no opportunities are given to you as a new hire, you might never recieve any opportunities off of the same line. As well, people will throw you under the bus from time to time, the environment is highly competitive and cutthroat.

  10. "great benefits just bad management"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Specialist Technical Assistant 

    I worked at Lutron full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    benefits are really great and you get a great end of year bonus

    Cons

    management favors people and some people can get away without doing work and being on their phones as compared to some other people.
