    High-paced, promising company that isn't afraid to push.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Waukesha, WI

    ProsYoung company in a promising industry. Strong future, once the necessary moves have been made.

    ConsLack of processes and procedures can cause for chaotic times; Corporate feel isn't for everyone

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire within for a change.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Over managed

    District Sales Manager (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsField based, visit corporate once per quarter

    ConsgPS tracker on company vehicles Nd they use it constantly

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust the people you hire. Stock benefits , opened at 14 about 4 years ago, now trading in the $50 dollar range. Stock options for executives, all became millionaires overnight. Employees had to buy through their personal broker at the public price

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great at the start, OK through the middle and then draining at the end.

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Waukesha, WI

    ProsPlenty of good opportunities while company was private. Pay good for well qualified employees, and regular bonuses. Improving the work environment by refurbishing HQ building (new lunchroom - finally).

    ConsLack of ideas on preparing employees for promotion, dysfunctional internal posting. Losing cohesive vision by creating intra-divisional rivalry - could lead to loss of optimal decision making

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain employees to advance them rather than continuously hire outside. This will breed loyalty and maintain the culture which made Generac successful.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Chaotic environment with no accountability

    Supervisor (Former Employee)

    ProsLow stress and not demanding in terms of amount of hours worked. No accountability by mgmt for any work done so free to create own job description

    ConsNo recognition for work completed. No input on career direction. No accountability by mgmt allowing other employees to coast and doing no real work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no advice I have for mgmt since there is no team environment that would allow them to listen to advice.
