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

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementHire 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
