    I worked at Lutron for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the most talented people I ever had the pleasure of working with. Very solid work life balance. Very 9 - 5 Mon - Fri atmosphere. Mike Pessina is a real leader. Joel Spira would be proud.

    Cons

    Hampered by politics. You've got 3 or 4 camps under specific VPs and everyone is pandering to executive management.

    I worked at Lutron

    Pros

    None whatsoever. the company has a lot of history.

    Cons

    Many engineers hired work less than a month after seeing how the company works. Outdated technology, horrible leaders, low wages, compensations are not good, work/life balance is off. If they need to produce on a sunday you must be there or get suspended and senior management does not come to work that day.

    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

    Pros

    It has already been said that the best thing about Lutron is the people. Regardless of your discipline, you will make close friends here, and you will have ample opportunity to grow your core skill set. For those who want to hit the ground running, Lutron is a great place to start a career - as the company relies heavily on new-hires to make key technical decisions in the company. Lutron rewards achievement, though you'll need to be willing to stand-up for yourself and be your own champion.

    Cons

    While new employees get ample opportunities to make real contributions, they also bear the brunt of insufficient upper management. Short-term strategies mean that work / life balance doesn't often factor into the equation -- crises flow down hill, and the company isn't shy about asking for copious uncompensated overtime from exempt employees. Lutron could be so much more than it is, and could attract and hold great talent if the atmosphere were less stressed and less repressed. Upper management could stand up for themselves and their employees -- but unfortunately it isn't the culture, and isn't likely to change before the regime. Anything and everything is subject to change at a moment's notice at managements' whim, often causing redundant effort and wasted time on "black hole" pet projects. Viable new ideas, visions, and strategies often get overlooked due to paranoia and a CYA approach that stems from trickle-down fear of the top management tier.
