I worked at Power Costs full-time (More than 3 years)
Very friendly and helpful people, decent learning curve and product suite, team outings and team activities on a regular basis, great work hours (Never had to work over 50-55 hours a week at the most)
Very poor pay, lack of incentives, bonuses, and a HORRIBLE and POOR review system. They do have an annual employee review system, which is great..However, the way its conducted is horrible - Most likely the bad things are discussed..The good things are hardly brought up (atleast in my case that's how it was). The most pathetic thing I faced was nitpicking on the most minute mistakes / errors (Seriously??? True!). One time I was almost yelled at for a spelling error in my synopsis - Great Example!! Total lack of innovation ..Wonder if there are any at all. No focus on learning of the product / Application, And last but not the least a very flat upper management structure. A good analogy - Too many cooks in the same kitchen. Weak HR process.
Advice to Management
Honestly, first respect your employees and what they have done for you. IMPROVE your review system and the way its conducted. Every coin has two sides and one suggestion is to listen to both sides of the story (boss and employee) and then evaluate / analyze before making a decision. Anyone can make mistakes and no one is born knowing everything in this world. The employee's concerns matter as much as anyone in the company. And when you let go people, atleast learn to say calming words like "I'm sorry! But there might be a better opportunity waiting for you" or "You would be better off somewhere else". Layoff is a pain and understand that! These are simple things that do not have to be taught. HR should be more involved in the review process - Try to get a group meeting setup with the employee, boss and whoever, listen & analyze the circumstances carefully before making a decision. Treat everyone as a valued asset and not like a doormat. Oh and one important thing - In a review learn to talk about good achievements and bad things (not just the mistakes committed). That helps motivate employees to achieve better. Take this advise or not - Your choice!!! This is only for the company's growth in the right direction.
