If you don't want to have self value… Then this is the place for you
Principal Design (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCAugust 21, 2015
Horrible Management.
Great Talent
Horrible Principles

Your hours are constantly watched.

They micro manage you to death.

Amazing opportunities die in this company every day.

They have no marketing team.

They're putting folks in manager roles that have no previous exp.

They could triple my salary and I'd never step foot in that place again.
Pros
Great CoWorkers and they pay very well…
Cons
Everything you can possibly think of

A great place to start off your career with lots of experienced people to help you learn
Quality Assurance Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Anaheim, CAMarch 17, 2015
A typical day for a QA Engineer at Extron Electronics invloves, assessing requirements with Product Development and Sales teams, Preparing test cases and test plans, testing and reporting of bugs etc.
This is a great place to start off your career as there are lot of experienced people who are more than willing to help and teach you. I have learned a lot about the Audio Video industry, about several challenging Extron Products a typical QA environment to mention a few from this organization.
The best highlight of this organization is the great co workers you get there, Knowledgeable, helpful and fun to work with.
This job required me to be a Computer/Electronics and Electrical engineer at the same time as I was involved in testing the hardware, firmware and the supporting software which was one of the greatest challenges I have faced here.

To summarize, this is a great place to work at with a good space to learn and grow.
Pros
Job Securinty, Co Workers
Cons
Some Old school HR rules.

Awesome company to work for!
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Anaheim, CADecember 22, 2012
I don't understand all the bad reviews that are being done on this company. I haven't seen anything like what all the negative reviews say about the working conditions at Extron. Salary is better than most companies I used to work for. Management and co-employees are all very nice people and are a pleasure to work with. With my manager, hours are very flexible. I've never once had to ask for permission to use the restroom. I don't know who in their right mind would tolerate that! All in all, Extron is a company that is on the rise and I'm proud to be a part of their team.
Pros
very good salary, good benefits, and friendly environment
Cons
nothing.

Friendly atmosphere and hard work in a place with professional people where the job can be done and result can be realized!
Technical support Scandinavians (Former Employee) –  The NetherlandsAugust 31, 2013
A typical day at work will always start off with greeting the co-workers and people in the company buildings and starting the day with a smile.
When the work starts, the to do list will be reviewed and followed in the best possible way. The hardest part is always to follow the list and do most of them accordingly without any interruption, however the challenge is to do your best and always try to improve on the management in general.
The most enjoyable of all is that when the hard work pays off and you get result of what you have done during the day/week/month and it is time to finish wrap up the day and go home to family time, but before have a nice chat and perhaps good relax time with co-workers to bond more!

Hostile Culture
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAMay 31, 2013
There is little upward mobility, and little management concern for career advancement.

Overall management and HR see employees as potential threats, not assets, so employees are constantly worried.

Good money, but I wouldn't go back and DON'T recommend working there.
Pros
good money.
Cons
bad/hostile work environment

Private company and fast paced environment.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Anaheim, CAAugust 28, 2014
Very fast paced, customer service is A # 1 priority. Human resources does not have an open door policy. So it is rather difficult to inquire about advancement.
Pros
owner is very generous.
Cons
very little team work amongst other departments.

Management Mentality/Approach Needs Improvement
Quality Assurance Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAJune 29, 2015
Some people in management/supervisors are completely backwards thinking: Intentionally placing people in job positions/tasks that are opposite to what they are skilled in or are adept and interested in working on; These managers/supervisors are "hoping" that that approach makes the individual what they consider "well-rounded," when all it does it create confusion and mis-management of resources in what people can and should be doing best.

Management/Supervisors tend to get rid of talented/skilled individuals and instead keep people who are not skilled and throw people on projects that are entirely not part of their educational/training/work background, again "hoping," that they just all of a sudden wake up someday knowing how to do someone elses job that has nothing to do with what they can and should be doing instead.

Supervisors pay too much attention to "In queue," when theres already so much in progress that requires workers time and attention. And rather than providing the worker the time they need to complete a task well, they stress them and ruin their focus with so many abstract "in queue" made-up issues that have no bearing on what is currently going on.
Pros
Pays Overtime
Cons
the clocking hours, supervisors tend to treat professionals like petty blue-collar low wage per hour workers, bad management
