    I worked at Power Design full-time


    - Wonderful looking corporate office

    - Young, diverse and dynamic work force

    - Several events throughout the year that break up the drudge

    - Many charitable events that help locally and nationally

    - Contests and giveaways with substantial prizes

    - Most complaints are echoed by other employees so you know it’s not just you.


    - The positive reviews seem to not mention any of the well-known issues and seem a bit suspicious, like they were written by PDI.

    - PDI is not the place for those looking for an actual career if you’re starting at the ground level, regardless of your level of experience.

    - Pay is only competitive in certain departments - Check out the salary scales on Glassdoor.

    - Money is wasted on frivolity, and then employees are told they cannot be paid a competitive salary.

    - Some employees come in at a very low pay and have to fight/threaten to quit in order to get anywhere near the typical base pay their job duties command at other companies throughout Florida.

    - Management power struggles make it hard to understand what the actual goal is for a department.
    - Nepotism (‘nuff said).

    - Office is becoming overcrowded.

    - Taking on more work than can be handled will mean more drastic layoffs when the construction lull hits again.

    - Pay cuts and furloughs during the recession which employees were not compensated for retroactively when the economy improved.

    - Working harder, not smarter.

    - Values and mission statement look great on paper, but don't match the inner workings of the office.

    - Hiring decisions sometimes based on superficial factors.

    - Highest turnover rate I've seen at any private company.

    - Some departments can't seem to hold employees past six months, sometimes past 24 hours!

    - Drastically different reward systems between departments.

    - Low morale in some departments.

    - Career goals are not taken seriously.

    - Favoritism that isn't well hidden.

    - Recruiting practices are not exactly ethical in some cases, making the staffing department seem more like a car salespeople rather than what you’d expect from a professional contractor.

    - Some employees are stuck in the same position because management refuses to let them grow, resulting in disgruntled and resentful workers.

    - Hard work, dedication, education and achievements are rewarded with little wooden statues and stickers instead of promotions and/or raises.

    - You either come in at the very top, or you're stuck in a low level position until you quit depending on the department you’re in.

    - A typical group of employees are usually chosen to go to award ceremonies.

    - Some managers take credit for the improvements employees initiated on their own.

    - Morale can get so low at points that management has to be reactive instead of proactive.

    - Though eye pleasing to some, the dress code is rarely enforced.

    - The tasks and duties performed each day far outweigh the starting pay.

    - Some people are allowed to work their two weeks, some are not.

    - A couple job descriptions have not evolved to accurately relay what is expected of the employee who fills that potion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management will continue to pretend to honor/praise their employees and never fix the true issues which lead to the high rate of turnover. The culture of PDI is so toxic that it will require a total overhaul in order to fix the issues.
