    I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time


    People - Some of the best people around. Many have left recently which is sad. Hope - Change (positive) is needed. Everyone knows it. There is still hope it might happen someday.


    Upper management - Still trying to run the company like it is a $300M HWY 59 company vs. the $2B global company it is now. Hopelessness - Positive change will not occur until there are changes with top management. Giving incompetent people more power and influence is not a good business plan. I'll stop here.
