I worked at Generac Power Systems

Pros

Leader in power generation. The company has respected products in their market and a great history. High potential for growth if changes are made to improve relations with employees and pay scale.

Cons

Management is very ignorant of employees and respect they give. Very sub standard pay scales for area in technical help. Turnover is very high because of work environment and no attempt to improve it. There is a lack of a coordinated plan to manage projects to complete on time. Very vertically managed company with old school employees at odds with new innovative thinkers that could move this company into a higher class.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start to address poor reputation as an employer in the area. Most people either get stung by this company and leave or stay away because of its reputation. Remove old school work environment office rules and become flexible and respect diversity.

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunities for those willing to work hard. Promotions from within encourage employees at all levels to make the most of their opportunity at the company.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment can be too much pressure for some. But for those that put high energy into it, they are rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work - continue to communicate your strategy with all levels of the organization and people will continue to work hard for the company!

    I have been working at Generac Power Systems

    Pros

    Definitely a growing company and has been for years. If you are an individual who likes to be challenged, has an open mind and can think outside the box, is adaptable to change and wants to be recognized then come to Generac. You can be an individual player but with a team atmosphere. I do believe that there is a reason why Generac was voted as one fo the best places to work!

    Cons

    Generac started in a barn so if you are coming here for glamour and a company that offers ammenities- not the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give management more ownership of their departments and stop dictating. It is a work in progress-but slow.
