    Pros

    I worked with a larger corporation for my first three years after college and have been with Power for just under a year now. To say I live a more financially free, comfortable, and happy life is an understatement. Since my time at Power I have grown professionally, and personally, and have developed an amazing set of skills and confidence. I don't see myself ever writing another resume again.

    Cons

    Almost no one comes to Power with any home remodeling experience. The first month is difficult learning a new sales style about a completely new topic. Once you get through this the opportunities are endless.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    Pros

    - Culture is amazing, everyone is actual friends and you become a family - Pay is great for those that perform well - Company values are in line with what a big successful companies should be

    Cons

    - Some favoritism is present (not company wide - but with some managers) - Growth from within is somewhat limited if you do not want to be in Sales for a long, long time - Commissions were changed in 2015 and many managers like myself took a huge pay cut

    Advice to Management

    - If someone wants to be something or create a position let them. Sometimes the best managers aren't necessarily the best salesman, but can still train, manage, and motivate better than top performers.

    Pros

    Fun, team oriented environment, and with the potential for growth. The opportunities are endless for a person who is willing to give up their life to work.

    Cons

    The hours are awful, and the pay you are told you will receive is grossly over stated. Expect to never be able to make plans. If you are interested in living to work this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites.

    Pros

    At Power, more than any other career I have had been given the tools and the leadership to grow into the professional and person you could be. Earning potential: The earning potential is extremely aggressive and uncapped. There are several ways in which you can increase your income including; commissions, monthly/quarterly/yearly volume bonuses, management incentives. It is expected for someone in their first 12 months to bring in anywhere from $70,000-$95,000. In the second year and moving forward that window jumps to $90,000-$130,000 and climbing depending on your position. Mentorship: The amount of managers and continual mentoring make sure you have any help when you need it. You will have your Regional Vice President (RVP) who oversees the entire department and is hands on with the staff. From there there are several mentors who focus on a smaller sect of the office allowing for more in depth training and guidance to cut down the learning curve early in your career. Culture: This is where power truly separates itself in the industry. As opposed to a typic sales role, where it can be cut throat or a "me vs you" mentality that makes breeds distrust and animosity in the office, Power is different. It is truly a "me WITH you" mentality. Everyone pushing each other to better themselves to reach a common goal. Coming from an athletic background, it can be likened to a cohesive team. The people where you work will soon become some of your best friends.

    Cons

    The only thing that can be taken as a "con" with this position would be the work schedule. It is an on call position with a relatively predictable window. It can be difficult initially, however once you get a feel for the schedule, it can be liberating. The time free throughout the day can allow you to enjoy your down time.

    Advice to Management

    The only advise I would give to the management staff at power is to keep challenging us to be better and to lead from the front.

    Pros

    The environment is like nothing I have ever experienced. Everyone there is always happy and more than willing to give time and training at a moments notice. Not once have I had to beg for help with anything like in previous companies I've worked for. Everyone is a phone call away including management. One thing that really stands out to me is how your compensation is directly correlated to the work you put in. The harder you work, the more you make. I don't have a company telling me I'm only worth $10 or $15 per hour. I decide what I'm worth. Lastly, there are plenty of opportunities for growth within the company which was a huge factor in taking the job.

    Cons

    The only con that I could say there is is how unpredictable the hours are but in joining the company you accept that and get used to it quickly. Everything they do is done for a reason and sometimes it's hard to understand that. Hint: ask questions on why things are done the way they are and the reasoning makes complete sense.

    Advice to Management

    In my eyes, not all of the mentors or leaders are made for their role. Some are better set for training than for motivating. However, there are a few that perfectly fit their role and I wouldn't change them for the world.

    Pros

    So there are so many reasons why working at power has been such a good experience. First off the earning potential is through the roof. Finally I found a company that you get rewarded for how hard you work and how much time you put in. The room for growth within the office is right in front of you. One doesn't have to be here for 5+ years to move up the ladder. Also the culture is second to none. To be at a company where anyone would happily miss there own opportunity to earn to help a fellow employee is absolutely unheard of, but at power its the norm. I cannot express enough how much this means as an employee, to have everyone willing to help you at any moment so you can get better at your job is amazing.

    Cons

    The hardest thing for me with working at power is initially finding the work-life balance. Its sometimes hard to stay disciplined and keep all your life in order while working. After some time you definitely get used to it once the job becomes more comfortable but it just takes some time.

    Pros

    Pay. If you follow training, work diligently, and are not socially bankrupt you can make more money at this company than with nearly any other entry level job. The top 10-15% of marketers make upwards of 60k, typically in their first year out of school. Top sales people see 70k and up, often after a year of experience in marketing. Experience. This is a great company to determine if you fit in sales or marketing; they have hiring, firing, and refining down to a science. The in-home sales pitch, door-to-door marketing pitch, and especially the hiring "pitch" is scripted to the last jot and tittle. Following these scripts allows relatively talented people to have success, find confidence, and refine both their intra and inter personal skills. New employees are given all the tools they need to succeed in a high-energy, competitive, and encouraging environment. Mobility. Lateral movement is possible but difficult to attain. Top performers can move to sales within 4 months; others move into operations to take on lower pressure roles after several years of hard work and dedication in marketing & sales. Annual Trip. PHRG does it big every December; so big that many burnt-out employees avoid quitting for a few extra months just to go on the trip. In 2013 they took the employees to Cancun, rented out an entire resort for 3 days, and even flew Snoop Lion in to perform. Very cool stuff.

    Cons

    Long awkward hours, mandatory unpaid( no base, all commission) Saturdays, Holidays; over all very poor quality of life. Pressure to perform at high levels consistently to maintain job certainty and favor with management. Long hours and high pressure result in burn out. Find a way to handle it or leave. Taking paid time off is discouraged. Using PTO days consecutively is extremely discouraged. Pay structure can vary between offices, for management in particular. This obviously creates jealously and dissension in the ranks. Top level bonuses can change or be eliminated all together; again, for management. Gas reimbursements are minimal, and cell phones are required for daily work use but are not reimbursed. Middle/Upper Management constantly preaches about the ability to be the next VP in an effort to retain talented go-getters who are looking for more challenges and rewards. In reality, it is very easy to be a sales or marketing manager but upward mobility beyond that is near nonexistent. Regional Director and VP roles are seldom available and candidates are often groomed for several years; not as readily available as the regional VP's would like you to believe. Favoritism is blatantly evident influencing employees' shift schedules, quality of marketing venue, quality of core team, and ability to take paid time off.

    Advice to Management

    Be more of an influence in individuals' career direction and far more realistic about career potential.
