    I worked at Powell Industries

    Pros

    Not a whole lot. The insurance is ok.

    Cons

    The reviews were always bad. The managers were told to redo the reviews if the score was too high so they wouldn't have to give out 30 cent raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people better and you will get better workers

    I have been working at Powell Industries full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I love working for Powell Delta/Unibus. During my time here I have seen many changes and I must admit it is for the better. HR at Delta are top notch, I have not ever worked for a company that HR is so involved in trying to make this a better place. They do what many HR people I worked for don't, they listen.
    Aggressive growth, management seems to really be trying to make us competitive in the market.

    Cons

    If your not part Houston or Canada you are forgotten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember there are other divisions outside of Houston and Canada. We also need your help to grow.
