I worked at Generac Power Systems

Pros

Great opportunity to get into the power generation industry if that is what interests you. The company really is world-class in terms of leading the industry. The benefits package is very fair. The new CEO is younger and could potentially change some of the company's old ways.

Cons

The company is very "old boys club". Most of the upper managers have worked their way up in the company since it's early days (the company is only 50 years old) It is hard for young people to gain respect of managers, coworkers and company "lifers". The company is/was very very very antiquated in terms of work/life balance.
At the time I left, there was no "flex-time". Meaning as a salaried employee you had to work until 5 every day no matter what or take vacation time. You couldn't for example, work 7-4:30 on a day if you had to make it to the kids' soccer games by 5.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management certainly needs to respect and value education. They also should rapidly modernize the culture if they want to retain employees for the long term.

    Pros

    Your ideas are valued and wanted. This is a company that pays for performance not just fancy ideas. The work pace is fast and results oriented. A great place to work if you being engaged and active.

    Cons

    If you like to think things over and over and then think on it a little more you will not like this environment. Company is behind on providing all the advanced tools people think they need to get the job done but management is looking into ways to correct that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping talking about and reinforcing the end result. There are a lot of great people here that give it their all and would most likely give even more if management entertained some flexibility around work schedule.

    Pros

    Absolutely love the companies drive to win in the market! It's an intense place to work for sure because it is very results driven. Wall Street loves the financial performance. The office is completely renovated and conference rooms have modern technology for meetings. Getting into new product categories is only going to mean continual growth. I'm in sales and love being the leader in the generator market because it gives us strength in customer meetings.

    Cons

    Definately not a place for mediocre people that want to work 8-5 and turn everything off. This place is for career minded people that can handle a company that is aggressively growing organically and through acquisition. A place for hard working people.
