Generac's Management blows major chunks

Dealer Acquisitions (Current Employee) Whitewater, WI

ProsThe best reason to work at Generac is if you are interested in the generator market and need experience.

ConsManagement doesn't know anything. They can't communicate to save their lives. We learn about job critical information a day before the public does. We, the employees, have to constantly make excuses for upper management. I don't think management isn't from the same planet as the rest of us. Turn over in our department is more than 50%. My report to doesn't know the product and her report to is even worse - and she reports to the president of the company! Some of her great lines are:
1) We are make 360 degree changes from what we used to do.
2) Double $150 is $250!
3) I really can see people having on average $46,000.00 in disposable income.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think the biggest thing for senior management is to stop playing intra office politic's games. It seems like all they are trying to do is keep their jobs as they fire people below them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Every company has its good points and bad - Generac is no exception.

    I worked at Generac Power Systems

    Pros: Generac depends heavily on the individual efforts of its workers (read tribal knowledge). You also get exposure to a large variety of manufacturing methods.… Cons: First, be aware that Generac has a very old school culture. If you work for Generac, your going to wear a tie. Second,… Advice to Senior Management: You need to stop the revolving door. I've never had a problem… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
