I have been working at Powell Industries full-time
Great culture with a family feel
Opportunities to move up are limited
Advice to Management
Leverage the value in the people you have, promote based on merit and performance, not your buddy, and clean out the top tier to make room for new ways of thinking and high energy
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Powell Industries (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
The process took several months from when I first submitted my resume until I was contacted by Human Resources. Once contacted, the process went fairly quickly, but I already had other opportunities by that time as well. They were not open to meeting some of the benefits offered by other companies.
