    I have been working at Lutron full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Hiring process often finds the best of the best to bring into the Lutron "family" however, most high potential employees realize over the course of 5-8 years that there is no chance of real advancement. The engineering team despite sweat shop like conditions at times- produces very high quality products for the lighting control industry.

    Cons

    Toxic culture, very limited employee benefits- no part-time, flex-time, work from home, limited vacation, horrible work/life balance - all very hypocritical for an organization that touts "family" and "Take Care of the People" as one of its core values. There is also a very pronounced brain drain at 5-8 years- engineers realize the abuse isn't worth the salary and move on and sales people realize that no bonus and no profit sharing are not worth their efforts in the field.

    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
