Material Operator/Customer Care/M.A.T (Former Employee) – Crawfordsville, IN – August 2, 2016
A typical day at Acuity would always make sure the line was set and ready to run. I've learned that you have to be organized in order to run properly. Management needs a little work. The hardest part of the job was to make sure all the parts where in to clear orders to stay running and the co-workers stay busy on the line. I enjoyed my job and the co-workers.

Not a great place to work if you value a good work/life balance
Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) – Crawfordsville, IN – April 24, 2016
This company has taught me so much. The demand is incredible though.The hours are long and there isn't a good work/family balance I'm thankful for the opportunity that I had but this was not the company for me with small children. My career is very important but my family will always come first.
Great company overall, groups in the company could use improvement
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) – Conyers, GA – March 2, 2016
Acuity Brands is a awesome company that is growing at a rapid pace. The pay is competitive and the facilities are nice. The culture and consistency within management and certain leadership positions often leaves a bad taste in the mouths of the employees along with a lost sense of direction for growth within the company.
Great pay and benefits
Lack of direction from management. No sense of job security.
Customer Care (Current Employee) – Conyers, GA – January 27, 2016
The company is too focused on LEAN and where they want to be that they are not staffing for where they are. Focus needs to be shifted back to quality and meeting the needs of their customers. There are too many meetings to be effective.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Cochran, GA – October 30, 2015
The Acuity Brands Lighting Production Facility, located in Cochran GA, is the site of the former,"Lithonia Lighting", facility. Lithonia Lighting is now a division of Acuity Lighting Group, Inc.. For almost forty years, this production facility offered fair employment opportunities to hundreds of middle Georgia residents, over a thousand employees at peak expansion. Management and labor sustained a strong and well structured relationship.
overtime opportunities, breakfast and lunch cafeteria

There is always the chance to advance here. You just have to sign the bids. The problem is you have to be careful where you go because you want to watch where they are working the overtime. If you don't want to work the overtime then you want to make sure you get a department that isn't working too much overtime, but almost all departments work 10-12 hour days along with 6 days a week. Especially in the summer.
buyer/planner (Former Employee) – wallingford – June 6, 2014
when this company was Sensorswitch, it was a great place to work and the old manager was a great person and a really people person. The new management needs to take classes on how to treat people and take all the higher ups with him. Worked there for about 18 years and had a good relationship with co-workers. If you like working more than 9-10 hours a day, this job is for you. As the other person said in the review, putting them all on an island would be just fine.
Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) – Crawfordsville, IN – April 1, 2013
It is expected to be there at 7:00 AM and start schedule set to do the job. Base off the set time periods you can complete the non-negiotables but anything extra will require two to three hours. The non-negiotables are required to be completed on a daily basis. It is an union manufacturing facility and there is some resentment between the manufacturing operators and the management. The hardest part of the job is completing the tasks that assigned to you.
Applications Engineer (Former Employee) – Conyers, GA – April 2, 2012
Acuity Brands Lighting, as the name suggests, is made up of multiple business units, separated by brand and function. The majority of the business is made up by lighting fixtures with the rest in lighting controls technologies. As such, they are diversified in products and ready for swings in the construction industry.
good benefits package, profit sharing, market influence
reliant on construction industry for main business, separate business units can be isolating
it was a productive place that you could learn alot from
Fork Lift Operator / Material Handler (Former Employee) – Cochran, GA – June 12, 2012
a typical day would be to make sure that the line had set up before they needed to start the next order. I have learned to be punctual and a leader as well. The management i really didn't know anything about but the co-workers were always a joy to be around. The hardest part of the day is when we don't have the part when its keyed in the computer saying that it's there. Everyone involved with that line has to go and search for that part. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. I got to know the people i worked with. Even though i was a forklift operator i did give them a helping hand on the line as well
EH&S Manager/Supervisor /Group Leader/FSOII (Current Employee) – Cochran, GA – July 11, 2012
Normal operations conducted daily with everyone pitching in to make the best of each day. The hardest thing right now is saying good bye to co-workers as a result of the shutdown. Most enjoyable part of the job is the Kaizen events. The whole crew as a whole are great to work for and with, from corporate management on down to the newest hires.
Former Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Specification Sales and Design – September 21, 2012
Very little growth in this territory... promises were broken. Territory is not condusive to making the numbers without expansion territory. Mangagement doesn't understand current market conditions and realistically is setting the next sales rep up for instant failure. Be very cautious before making a decision for this company and territory.
no support from corporate... kiss your job goodbye if you don't make your numbers the first year.
