    Current Employee - Project Engineer in Meridian, ID
    Current Employee - Project Engineer in Meridian, ID

    I have been working at POWER Engineers full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed culture where having a beer at lunch and wearing shorts are not frowned upon.

    Senior management is more visible and approachable as compared to senior management at similar sized companies.

    Company is doing great financially and growing rapidly.

    IT network and applications are far superior to other companies of this size and even larger.

    Meridian office is modern looking and comfortable.

    Benefits, 401k, and bonus programs are well run.

    Cons

    Project Managers get too much credit and compensation. Meanwhile the engineers, drafters, and even department managers are under-compensated. This results in high turnover in those areas.

    Company ownership is based on the good old boy network and who you know. Ownership has little to do with actual accomplishments or work performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose your company culture during this fast paced period of growth. Address the over-compensation of project managers. Fix the ownership issue by rewarding strategic thinkers and leaders and not by using the current popularity contest.

    Great for learning experience. Poor salary and hint of favoritism

    Pros

    Gives ample opportunities to learn new projects. Got to dabble in various different aspects of power systems like protection, stability, grounding etc.

    Cons

    Give too much importance to internal processes which at times "dums down" one's creativity. Following processes is almost a pressure while performing the job and the "fun" aspect of learning something new is lost in trying to cope with the so called "quality" aspect.
