I worked at Generac Power Systems

Pros

Low stress and not demanding in terms of amount of hours worked. No accountability by mgmt for any work done so free to create own job description

Cons

No recognition for work completed. No input on career direction. No accountability by mgmt allowing other employees to coast and doing no real work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is no advice I have for mgmt since there is no team environment that would allow them to listen to advice.

    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.

    I have been working at Generac Power Systems full-time (less than a year)

    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.
