    I worked at Lutron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting salary, my immediate manager was supportive and reasonable. Just wasn't what I was looking for in a position.

    Cons

    I was told that there was 3 weeks of training before going on support and it turned out that I was on Teir 2 support in 6 days,.

    Advice to Management

    Do the 3 weeks of training to insure comfort level when goign solo for support.

    I worked at Lutron full-time

    Pros

    Mid-size established lighting company with enough room for movement, if you make it that far

    Cons

    Weird culture. The egos here run wild. In the sticks of PA. If you're "different" in ANY way, you might have trouble fitting in here. Different can mean a lot of things, but if you visited and worked there, you'd probably soon understand what I mean. I was never comfortable from day 1.

    Advice to Management

    In Lutron's case, executives might actually want to consider micro managing some departments...if they were more involved, they'd probably realize they are employing full teams that are completely unnecessary, 10 jobs that could be done by 1 person.

    Pros

    Higher salary compared to competitors in the area. Can save money since there is absolutely nothing to do in coopersburg.

    Cons

    incompetent HR. Old fashioned managers who discard any idea coming outside of their own head. the environment makes you feel like you signed up for some technology cult, typical corporation dictatorship.

    I worked at Lutron full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to start a career. Gave opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Salary is on the low side. Management acts like a 5% raise with a promotion is like having to bend over backwards. Same goes with the 1% bonus. Very weird family dynamic, promotions based on who you know not how well you preform. Growth is very limited for long term.

    Advice to Management

    Accept you are a growing company. It's time to cut ways with the family run style it's hurting more than it's benefiting. Need to start anazlying how you treat all employees coming from college not just engineering. Either need to accept your just a stepping stone or provide more opportunity for long term growth with the company.

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

    Pros

    Great family atmosphere, fun products to work on. Able to transition to other roles within the company. While there's a perception that the "culture" limits employee's abilities to get things done, I've found that you can pretty much take on whatever you think makes sense.

    No layoffs in company history - stable employment environment

    Cons

    Sometimes process slows us down and makes it harder to move as fast as we should.

    I worked at Lutron full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The production crew are good folks.

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours with lots of mandatory overtime. Management is inept and only pushes production, while not considering why production goals aren't met. In a feeble attempt to try to increase production, management monitors and restricts (where possible) floor conversation and bathroom breaks. Long-time employees with a wealth of knowledge and experience are held back because they do not possess 4-year degrees. Employee morale is extremely low, with many looking for a way out. Safety record is embarrassingly abysmal. OSHA would do well to pay them a visit. People are constantly being injured and proper incident investigations are not being performed.

    Advice to Management

    Solve production process issues. Put the right people in positions that will affect change. Give employees work-life balance. Lighten up. Work shouldn't feel like a labor camp. Take care of your employees, both mentally and physically.
