Not sure how it made the top places to work...it's still touted, even though that was many, many years ago.

Pros

The people are the best part. There are some very strong relationships that have been built and that make the company what it is today.

Cons

The company just went public but doesn't have leadership that is experienced implementing the necessary changes to move from a privately held company to a public company. Employees are very frustrated by both the lack of direction and constantly changing direction. Also, if you are looking for flexibility that allows for some work/life balance, do not come here. Benefits are so/so, vacation package is poor and you're told there is no negotiation, until you find out the person next to you was given 3 weeks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire leaders that are have experience in a public company and not the home grown leaders you currently have who only have their experience from Generac to pull from.

    Pros

    If you don't like to work too hard, you don't have to. But if you do, they will always expect you to.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible -- worst I've ever had. Upper management pushes their personal views on the employees. Many of the management team are elitist. If you don't have manager, vp, etc. in your title they will completely ignore you. Other depts love to scream and yell and don't see any problem in it. Pay scale is completly out of wack. There is no loyalty to people who have been there a long time....they will pay you less then someone coming in. You get strung along without any promotions or increases while the "big dogs" keep making more money. I used to love my job and have grown to not the more I work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees, all of them. Get out of the old mindset and move towards the future. And please, get better health care - it really is horrible.

    Pros

    Generac is a community . There are 2 types of people that work here: Individuals that strive and work to better themselves for their own reward and those who work here to better the company, the product and customers thus making themselves and their fellow employees better and succesful. Those individuals that are here for only their benefit will not be successful or enjoy their time here. This company is ever changing and in the last several years has made great strides in employee communication, career counseling, new product development and customer satisfaction. Generac is also heavily involved in the local communites where their plants are located.

    Cons

    If you're looking to be put on a pedastal and praised for doing a job that you earn a salary for you're in the wrong company for no one here is successful without the help of others. It's a team effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue evolving and changing with the times. Continue to listen to your employees and customers.
