Awful work environment
Application Engineer (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCFebruary 4, 2019
Top executives lack vision and direction. They paid a consulting company lots of money to drive the development of a new product only to cancel it shortly before launch. Also flip-flopped on whether or not to sell a different version of that product even when customers were asking for it Wrong/incompetent people in key management roles
Middle management is full of pencil pushers who have been conditioned to only do what they are told to do. No initiative and no independent thought to the point where even small-talk with their reports seems like a challenge
Company culture is based on rigid and antiquated rules that seem to be meant to instill fear rather than provide a safe and friendly work environment
Everything is a secret. Managers have no scruples lying to their reports about already known "secrets"
No career growth or development. You get told to go to a conference or training without being consulted or even asked whether it has any benefit or not IT setup and rules hinder work progress and sometimes block it

Not productive. Chose this job only because I needed a job to start.
Network Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Anaheim, CADecember 7, 2018
Really bad. Needs a rework at the whole structural and management level. Especially the departments need more communication to meet product shipment dates. Additionally, there is no respect for work done, and it is more like a government job.

Talented teams, great team leads, great compensation/benefits
QA Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Anaheim, CAOctober 24, 2018
Working at Extron Electronics requires very precise time management as each employee is tasked with multiple projects ending on varying dates. Projects can range from QA testing, to technician oversight, to automation testing and program design.

Overall while working at Extron I have taught myself a great deal of coding languages and have increased my productivity and time management skills. Looking closely to details while testing audio and video equipment to prepare for customer shipment is the main task each team is assigned to.

The hardest part of the job is being able to complete multiple large projects, while working/communicating with teams from different buildings all without having to extend due dates. Because each team member must work with departments such as Product Development, Engineering, Software Development and other QA teams, time management is a must.

The most enjoyable part of the job is how well all the teams get along with each other and how easy it is to talk to everyone in the office. It is hard to find a workplace that promotes this type of diversity and employee engagement.
Pros
Employee engagement
Cons
Raises/Bonuses vs. Amount of workload each year are few and far between

Senior Staff Engineer (Current Employee) –  Anaheim, CAAugust 22, 2018
There is little or no communication between management and the employee. The working environment is not very good. Things move at a slow pace. There is little access to the build after working hours. It is open on Saturdays for a limited amount of time.

One weird thing about the company is that the janitorial service people only work during business hours. Periodically a cleaning crew will clean offices causing interruption of work for nearly a quarter of an hour.
Pros
Interesting products
Cons
No management communication

Extron Employee Work Experience
Associate Failure Analysis Engineer (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAMarch 22, 2018
The salaries are low. The expectation of time for completion is shorter than what is reasonable for a project. An employee is made to feel that you are not completing what is expected, even when later it is determined that expectation was not reasonable. Each employee has to be concerned if they are next to get laid off or fired.
Pros
Mostly 8 hour work day.
Cons
Stressful, low pay, no bonus or reward for extra effort, no written account of an employees work(good or bad), a feeling of secrecy

Horrible work culture
Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAMarch 19, 2018
The biggest gripe I had here was the strict HR policies of clocking in and out to keep tabs on how many hours you are physically there, even when you are salary. If you are under the required hours to clock, you must make up the time, even if you are doing your work on time. I also worked with people that had a lot of trust issues. Being let go is actually a blessing. Every time I look on the job boards, I see so many job postings from this company. They have huge turnover and can't fill their positions. If you really need to work here, fine, but for anyone with a sense of dignity, just stay away.
Pros
Standard benefits
Cons
Micromanagement, swipe in/out for timekeeping

poor oppotunity for temp to hire employees
Quality inspection (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAMarch 4, 2018
80% of tempts working at the company get an interview to get hired on and only like 5% get hire. Also temps don't get the benefit of the doubt of any illness.
Pros
relax atmosphere
Cons
very little acknowledgment

Extremely micromanaged environment
QA Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAJanuary 30, 2018
This company gradually got worse over the last 10 years. Over the last 5 years it turned into a nightmare. The managers are abusive and are incompetent. It was mandatory to work 8.5 hours a day, whether it was needed or not, just so the head of the department can look good on paper. if you were short as little as a minute you would be RED FLAGGED. Morale was low through out the company. Anyone with real talent did not last long. HR has all the power and there has been a very high turn over rate. Take any positive review of Extron with a grain of salt. Management plants positive reviews to discredit the reality of whats going on there stated by the negative reviews. Unfair treatment of employees by management and HR. If you really want to know if these negative reviews are accurate, then seek a job with Extron and it won't take long before you experience all the negatives that Extron dishes out. This is why real talent doesn't stick around for very long.
Pros
Some of the coworkers are okay, the location was good
Cons
Heavily micromanaged, abusive management, creativity is not supported, keeping your mouth shut and doing what you are told to do, whether right or wrong is what management wants, long hours without justification, workload extreme, lack of training

There is plenty of work and really good people. You cannot work from home, but that might a good thing because everyone is there to help around. Need to clock in/out though.
