Former Employee - Territory Development Manager in Houston, TX

I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Learned a tremendous amount about stand-by power generation. Most sales positions are field based, company supplied vehicle, laptop, cell phone, gas card and company credit card for business expenses

Cons

Company cars now have GPS trackers for "insurance purposes" but in reality its used to track your movements. Bonus formula at that time were based on several factors that as a Territory Manager you had no control over and formula was undecipherable. Compensation was average for outside sales, inside sales compensation was horrible, less than 30K.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your Territory Managers more authority to address customer service issues with major accounts, especially regarding equipment failures and end user warranty issues.

    Great at the start, OK through the middle and then draining at the end.

    Former Employee - Manager in Waukesha, WI

    I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Plenty of good opportunities while company was private. Pay good for well qualified employees, and regular bonuses. Improving the work environment by refurbishing HQ building (new lunchroom - finally).

    Cons

    Lack of ideas on preparing employees for promotion, dysfunctional internal posting. Losing cohesive vision by creating intra-divisional rivalry - could lead to loss of optimal decision making

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees to advance them rather than continuously hire outside. This will breed loyalty and maintain the culture which made Generac successful.
