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
It is a good place to work, people around are very collaborative, managers are nice. It's a good place to learn many things about electronics. The hardest part of this job is when it comes to raising your salary every year they will come up with any kind of excuse to give the lowest raise as possible. In addition, people who work in production have very little opportunity to advance in the company. My manager told me once that only people with a college degree can advance in the company.
This was my first real job but overall I really enjoyed working there. My managers were very good. Understand and not overbearing. All engineering managers were engineers. I was able to move laterally into a group that aligned more with my passions.
In the year I spent at Crestron electronics my primary job was to use laser equipment to engrave plastics for electronics according to customer specifications. This included Faceplates, buttons, switches and more. In addition I was tasked with keeping track of and organizing the stock room.
It was a pretty straight forward factory job. My manager was a decent guy and taught me a lot.
My primary issue with the company was corporate's constant meddling and making the job unnecessarily difficult
VE Test Engineer III (Former Employee) – Rockleigh, NJ – January 5, 2018
poor management, quick to blame, company actually punishes its engineers, will hire people from India over U.S. insists you work longer hours to earn your pay, do two jobs for one paycheck. promised bonuses were never given.
Technical Manager (Current Employee) – USA – November 1, 2017
Crestron is a great company, with even better people. There are many rumors about the company selling, and losing many of the key figures that have made it as great as it has been for so long. If that happens, it will certainly fall from the top spot in the industry.
