    I have been working at Power Design full-time

    Pros

    - Awesome corporate headquarters
    - The company organizes "parties" during office hours with free alcohol and tons of food, really for any reason they can think of .. also "Power Outages" "Fun Friday" etc.
    - Almost everyone in the office looks like they stepped out of GQ

    Cons

    Let me start off with - All of the "5 star" and "seemingly perfect" ratings are obviously not accurate and fictitiously written to try to smooth over the perception of PDI - which is well known in the area and all recruiters
    - HIGH TURNOVER - even people who work there have made comments "it wouldn't surprise me if they fired me tomorrow" You literally do not know who will be there each day, the company is a revolving door. Don't fall in love with your job or the company atmosphere, most people are gone in 6 months.
    -PTO - I have never seen a system such as this, you have a set amount of PTO days but all general holidays (I.E. Memorial Day, July 4th, Christmas Eve, etc) get taken out of your PTO.. after all of the holidays I am left with 3 days I would be able to take off or be sick. Everyone stays in the negative with time off - so when you inevitably get fired, they will take the time out of your paycheck I assume.
    - Training - There is none. It's sink or swim with an extremely confusing system. Don't try to ask questions- depending on your boss, you will get snapped at
     - Very cut throat and no where to expand. If your management gets the hint you want to expand your knowledge, skills, or your position - you will be gone the next day and someone a little more naive and content will take your place.
    - Low salaries in comparison to the job market. Money is spent elsewhere - parties, beer, a private jet that takes the owners, their children, and whoever has managed to mingle their way in with them, to their beach house in Cabo. (but don't hold your breath at being one of these lucky few, it takes years of brown nosing - if you can manage to hang on to your job that long)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Almost all of Tampa and St Pete areas are well aware of your business practices now and recruiters are being very candid. The corporate culture is nice, but maybe you should try to hang on to your employees a little longer - they could end up being assets, instead of wasting money continuously training a new batch of employees. Be more respectful of people
