    I have been working at Lutron full-time

    Pros

    Lots of overtime, multiple positions to move into and also good with retirements plans with profit sharing and annual bonuses.

    Cons

    The company tends to force overtime even though it isn't always wanted. Long hours and tend to change time of work frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating and getting more effective with productions so you can start giving the employees some time off with their families.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Most people are nice to work with.

    Cons

    Management isn't that great and isn't willing to change old ideas and ways of doing things. Felt that the engineers were more valued than other staff. Pay wasn't great.

    I worked at Lutron full-time

    Pros

    competitive salary, good benefits, good travel allowance... This is a private company that offers employees nice profit sharing package and other benefits.

    Cons

    sometimes it seems that everyone is trying hard to get what the boss wants, has to be someone's guy in order to have advancement in the company. But you have to align to the right guy...

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the real hard working people instead of sweet talkers, practice open door policy and listen to the voices of employees instead of only the few big bosses on the top...

    Pros

    Freedom that comes from the nature if the job. OK pay.

    Cons

    Very strick dress code. It's a technology company for heaven's sake. Some managers want to micromanage their employees to the point of dust ration. Employees move up based on tenure not potential.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the potential of all your employees not just the ones that have been stuck in the same position for 15 years.

    Pros

    They give you a lot of freedom to take on varied responsibilities. There is also attention given to internal training which helps keep employees well-rounded and growing professionally.

    Cons

    Movement in the company and your performance is extremely dependent upon your supervisor. If your supervisor doesn't value you then your career suffers. HR pretends to care, but their clear lack of action proves otherwise.

    No leadership and if you are not an engineer, you will not have support guidance or encouragement. You have hit the ceiling on climbing in the company.
