Current Employee - Mechanical Design Engineer in South Houston, TX

I have been working at Powell Industries

Pros

The co-workers were nice I guess

Cons

Companies a mess,backbiting, too much politices.Lot of H1B's in company.
 the interviewers (Mech dept manager and supervisor) were confused since what they wanted and what was posted on the job board was different.

Manager expected that I know everything from day one even though I clearly stated during the interview I was a recent graduate.

Wanted extensive unpaid overtime.

Salary is abysmally low.

Manager did not bother to train.

Overall a crummy experience.

Weak technically. Little interest or priority given to distributing knowledge

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't come to conclusions without collecting the facts and managers & supervisors are not always right ,Keep an eye on them they are not being productive.
for mech dept supervisors----Value your employees. Open the lines of communication and be receptive to feedback. Don't be afraid to hire someone who knows more than you their performance can make you look good
