    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.
