    I have been working at Powell Industries full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I love working for Powell Delta/Unibus. During my time here I have seen many changes and I must admit it is for the better. HR at Delta are top notch, I have not ever worked for a company that HR is so involved in trying to make this a better place. They do what many HR people I worked for don't, they listen.
    Aggressive growth, management seems to really be trying to make us competitive in the market.

    Cons

    If your not part Houston or Canada you are forgotten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember there are other divisions outside of Houston and Canada. We also need your help to grow.
