I have been working at Power Design full-time for less than a year

Pros

• There’s always something to do, never time to watch the clock.
• The company does fun events for its team members.
• Power Design takes pride in our office and enjoys giving company tours.
• The company hires from within so there’s always room for growth.

Cons

• Since we’re understaffed there’s not enough time in the day to do all of the expected work.
• The PTO structure is very different from what I feel other companies are doing today.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

• Consider not having forced PTO days like Presidents Day, Good Friday, etc.
• Consider giving bereavement to utilize for immediate family members.

    A solid full service electrical contractor, but not a good choice for a stable career

    I worked at Power Design full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work load is reasonable, compensation is fair enough in today's employment market. Intelligent innovative younger workforce. Very aesthetically pleasing building and grounds. They spent a lot of money to build a very nice home office. Power Design is good at what they do and is one of the larger privately held electrical contractors. Nice company events and beautiful women everywhere.

    Cons

    The CEO Mitch Permuy has the biggest ego of any person you will ever meet in life.... millionaires and billionaires included. He has an extremely hot temper, is rude and unprofessional. This somewhat sets the tone of the overall company because others appear to be afraid of disagreeing with him. You could literally hear him cursing and yelling from 100 feet away with his door closed. This is not a pleasant environment to be around. Turnover is extremely high, you never know who will be gone the next day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing things the way you have. I believe they've made sound business and financial decisions which will ensure stable operations and growth if the construction market picks up. Having a younger workforce and limiting the number of years an employee has with a company probably keeps health insurance and payroll cost down... smart move. Being a hard--- has undoubtedly served Mitch and the company well in the long run. A stable company doesn't always equate to a stable career.

    Immense in house training and supports external as well
    Executives work hard to keep improving process
    Truly care about their employees and retention
    Company is growing providing a lot of opportunity for their employees

    Cons

    The company is growing and so is the workload. The hours and management can be demanding but it is usually rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have seen a lot of improvement with on boarding and training new personnel as well as increased appreciation for current employees. Keep it up!
