Line Lead, Management Assistant & IPC Instructor (Former Employee) – Cresskill, NJ – January 2, 2019
Very demanding place to work for, with good quality management though, daily schedule from 8 to 5, at the helm of the prep department making sure all the kits or production sets are ready, cut and prepared for the next days of production. Helped implement 5S and enforced it at the max with the help of site management.
I being working at this company for almost three years and they are a bunch of liars they just want to give you responsibility but,when you ask about any negotiation about rise they won’t give you nothing I won’t recommend this company to a friend
The entire company is like a family and everyone there wants you to succeed in your field. If your ever having a hard time with a project there is always someone who can give you some tips to find your answer.
I have found working at Crestron to be very stifling of creativity, with dismal prospects for advancement, and a salary that makes it difficult to make ends meet. I would not recommend working at Crestron. I feel little more than disposable part of a machine.
Stressful and confrontational environment Micromanagement of senior level engineers Unhappy people Lack of technical knowledge and discipline on all levels Management that lacks knowledge of modern engineering and manufacturing practices
Manager (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – January 8, 2019
The leadership is hard headed and very much schedule driven. That is the schedule they come up with and absolutely do not care about the quality of the products. That results in poor quality and installations and a constant flow of escalations that engineers have to address even on obsolete products.
Costly benefits, archaic PTO and company culture. Still stuck in 90s
Driver and Fork Lift Operator (Former Employee) – Northvale, NJ – December 27, 2018
looking at the position I had at Crestron I've learned a very great deal of skills in addition to what I already know. Of course, like any job, it comes with difficult tasks at times but being the collaborative and charismatic person I am just assisted in the peaceful environment I was in.
constructive criticism, constant learning, and paid vacations.
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Flower Mound, TX and Plano TX – December 14, 2018

Solderer/Assembler (Former Employee) – Cresskill, NJ – October 24, 2018
My first years working at the company were great, but as time passed it displayed signs of deterioration. Workers health insurance changed for the worst. Unprofessional employees were hired. Many co-workers cause an unlimited amount of drama and management does not do enough to stop the immaturity. There is a lot of favoritism that leads to special perks to the employees that "suck up" to supervisors and managers. People who lollygagged and did not accomplish their duties were given raises due to these "beneficial friendships" while other hard workers were given a few more cents an hour. Human resources will never side with a non-managerial employee in any issue and have fired employees for reasons that should have had others fired.
Laboratory looking environment with a lot of 4k TV's
Tester/Technician (Former Employee) – Rockleigh, NJ – October 22, 2018
I loved working at Crestron Electronics. It was a very laid back environment as long as you got your work done. There were times where there was a lot of work almost like a quota. You had to finish the work. I never had a problem getting my work done. I was a tester. I tested the products that the assemblers made, to ensure they worked. If the the product was faulty I would have to put a fail ticket on the product so the assembler can fix it. That is kind of how the day went. The assemblers would make the products the testers would test them. And if they passed the packers would pack them. It was a repetitive job but fun none the less.
My only complaint with Crestron Electronics was the technicians. There was one technician there who would abuse his power.
I was at my test bench alone testing electronic boards, one after another. Doing my job when I realized something wasn't right, at first i thought it was my own doing. The boards where failing at random times through out the day mostly when no one was around.
I finally figured out the problem and it was the technician in his office.
As i was trying to run tests on the boards he was secretly changing the scripts to my test bench, causing my boards to fail.
At first i thought it was my fault, maybe i was doing something wrong with the test, but that certainly wasn't the case.
He was back in his office having the time of his life, and i'm at my bench struggling trying to figure out why the boards are failing.
The way I new it was him doing this and nothing else was because a different technician camemore... to my bench and told me all he had to do was change the script and it will pass. He walked to his office changed the script and the unit passed. So at that point i new the colored technician was up to no good. That's when i decided to quit.
I'm sure he thought it was the funniest thing ever but for me it wasn't. i had to leave after i found out what he was doing behind my back.less
You get to watch movies while you work/ and you can sit
Technicians who abuse there power for there own enjoyment
Warehouse associate (Former Employee) – Orangeburg NY – October 7, 2018
One of the worse jobs I'd ever had. Management was miserable. Treated their employees terribly and very disrespectfully. Would always work OT on weekends, if you weren't available for one after working every other one, they would make you feel like your letting them and the company down if you couldn't make it in for OT. Horrible work environment. Everyone is unhappy, are not aloud to speak to each other, if you do it could lead to a write up. There is no real chance at advancement. Just a very tense and depressing environment. They tried running it like a prison. I worked at the Orangeburg location and it had to be one of the worse jobs in my life so far. Wouldn't recommend it to my enemy. Anything is better than this place.
the pros, easy work multiple languages and antithesis heath benefits are fine cons micro management is an obnoxious overall management is very poorly handled pay isn't equitable for the amount of work you do work load is inconsistent, feels like some days you have little or nothing to do, others you work as hard as two or more employees.
Terrible management, nobody's got your back and terrible training
Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Southeast US – August 17, 2018
When you start a job here, no "real" applicable training. Throw you out in the field and go to it. Salesman mislead to sell big project packages only to have me travel back and forth to appease the client.
Direct Service manager, no experience in people management, hammers down on people more than helping them do better. Hides problems and hopes they go away.
Records Coordinator (Former Employee) – New Jersey – August 6, 2018
Workers seem to be afraid of upper management. Offices are old and not kept well. Owners act like they rule employee's. And I suspect some employee's may not have legal status so they keep in toe. Worst job experience I've ever encountered.
It was close to home
Poor working conditons, Poor management, cheap outfit
