not worth it
Technical Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ashland, VAFebruary 7, 2019
production based, long hours, constant overtime because productions goals are impossible to meet in 8 hrs, expects Lutron to be your life, policies only apply to certain people, they like to make up policies as they go along.
Pros
pay
Cons
everything else

Great place to start you career
Sr. Sales Engineer (Former Employee) –  Denver, CODecember 12, 2018
Would not comment on the current environment, much has changed since the founder has passed away. Management was easy to work with but it was difficult to get decisions made.

Contractors are treated like second class citizens
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Coopersburg, PANovember 27, 2018
Contractors are treated like dirt. They are overworked while the full-time employees work 8a-5p and take more than an hour for lunch. Contractors are never told about the "18 month rule" when they are interviewed or hired. Apparently, recruiters are not told this information either. They use you up and spit you out. As a contractor you are not permitted to participate in any events at Lutron...not even lunch meetings.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Treat employees (especially contractors) like dirt

Politics not Management
Embedded Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaNovember 27, 2018
It's all about empire building at Lutron, surprising for such a small company. The powers-that-be around head office are refusing to delegate authority outside of their sphere of influence. Recently when interviewed by a senior VP pertaining to a position opening away from head office, the focus was not on what I knew, rather what I didn't know which was unrelated to the position, clearly destined from the outset to deny me an opportunity in somebody else's domain. Others have commented that management is too slow to make changes, the reality is that they're afraid to tread unfamiliar waters and will not rely on the expertise of those they hire, but fall back on their own out-dated knowledge of the industry and ambivalence towards skills that are needed for future competitiveness. 'This is the way we've always done it' simply doesn't apply any more. Lutron could be a good place to work if the executive were kept on a short leash and allow the good people to do their jobs.
Pros
Middle management
Cons
Executive clingng to an out-dated paradigm.

Electronics Technician Co-op (Current Employee) –  Coopersburg, PAOctober 1, 2018
As an intern I have learn a lot. They constantly seek for your opinion if something needs a change or if you cam find a better way of doing the job they are very open to listen of what you have to say.

Great place to work
Senior Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 15, 2018
Great place to work in terms of salary, benefits, and culture. I wouldn't recommend for someone looking to move up quickly and progress in their career. Lutron is an old-fashioned company that rewards hard work over many, many years, and tends to discourage young people looking to accomplish a lot within their first few years out of school (you have to be at the company 5-10 years before becoming a manager). That being said, they are definitely working on being better about this and making an effort to give millennials a clearer career path. Additionally no one ever seems to get fired (despite some questionable behavior) and employees are treated and paid well.
Pros
good salary, nice people, job stability

I was a contractor
Senior Designer (Former Employee) –  PaAugust 27, 2018
Hired as a contract position, I don’t feel I am qualified to answer these questions. It was a nice place to work for the short time I was there. However the facility was very unkempt.

Do not be fooled
Technician Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ashland, VAAugust 21, 2018
To anyone looking for a full time position where you can grow and be treated fairly do not apply to this job. Working here was one of the biggest mistakes I’ve ever made. Waiting and hoping for advancement and compensation never happened. You are not allowed to have a life outside this job. You belong to them once you accept the position. If you are willing to be cut throat this is the job for you. Those who do will advance. The supervisor and line lead will throw you under the bus for their mistakes and you are not allowed to defend yourself against their accusation. Human resource dept is the worst part of working here. Either accept it or get fired. Ive witness many ppl being fired by HR for no reason other then to intimate the current employees. And to impose their will on you as a employee. If you work here you will regret it.
Pros
Long term employees are great.
Cons
HR is not on your side and will fire in a second. You are not allowed to be sick or take a vacation.

Friendly Environment, But Lacks Understanding
Associate Materials Assistant (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAAugust 14, 2018
Though I very much loved my fellow workers and the benefits were very good, there was a lack of empathy in base workers issues and a disinterest in their ideas. There would be meetings where high ups would meet with workers to listen to ideas and issues caused by other facets of the company impacting the warehouse. The issue was most of these talks led nowhere and worker concerns and ideas were squashed. The warehouse was extremely dark, quiet, with little to no human interaction. This caused an air of depression during late shifts. I myself was forced to leave the company due to depressive moods caused by the environment. No offers to move to a more people-oriented section of the company. I knew the previous CEO personally and I am rather saddened by what the company has become under new leadership.
Pros
Good Benefits, Friendly Staff
Cons
Dreary work environment, Lack of Mental Health understanding, Not equal opportunity.

A fantastic place to challenge your and realize your full potential
Current employee (Current Employee) –  Coopersburg, PAAugust 12, 2018
Wide variety of challenges that have allowed me to grow is unexpected ways. There is a can do attitude that makes the impossible actually possible. They ask a lot of you, but the self satisfaction that comes with achieving amazing results.

Great Place, Great People, Poor Management
Field Service (Current Employee) –  United StatesJuly 2, 2018
I have met some of the smartest people I have ever met working for this company. The work is fast paced, challenging, and rewarding and the relationships I have built here will last a life time. With that said, it can all come crashing down in a heartbeat with the wrong manager. Lutron has a habit of changing management often, without vetting the people for the skill types necessary to manage people. This often leads to people who were amazing at their previous job, falling to the Peter Principle.

As a result of this, a lot of mid to senior level managers who have to manage a portfolio end up micromanaging their junior leadership and causing them to either flee the department or the company all together.
Pros
Great people, Job Security, Challenging, and fast paced.
Cons
Poor management and an inability to see it.

Good Coworkers, Manager Dependent Advancement
Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  Coopersburg, PAJune 20, 2018
The work culture at Lutron can vary pretty drastically depending on your group, where some groups seem to have flex hours, while other groups are strictly form 8-5. Company runs pretty lean, so 9 hour work days are not uncommon, but typically depends on the position.

Coworkers are great, and generally good to work with. Some strong type A personalities, but pretty typical at most companies. There's not much structured career growth early on, and your advancement is largely dependent upon how much your manager is willing to push for you.

A typical day
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Coopersburg, PAMarch 21, 2018
Lutron has a strict formal culture. As an employee you are guided to dress in a full suit every day. They have a military mentality and believe that work comes before all other duty's.

This is a company that is currently trying to change their culture around how they do business. Their intentions are good, but management is fumbling the evolution.

old school
