I have been working at Power Design full-time (More than 5 years)
There is opportunity everywhere if you are willing to go after it. This is an amazing fit for individuals seeking a career vs. just another job. It has a very, "work hard; play hard" atmosphere. Management takes notice of employees who go the extra mile. The company seems to consider what they can do or provide to help the employees produce quality results vs. cutting costs and squeezing everything out of each person. This includes a very extensive training department, many support departments for project management, and provide the latest technology. More on the less important side, the office environment is aesthetically appealing, coffee is provided, frequent breakfast deliveries, regular parties that can compete with a wedding or gala, regular team outings, car wash & dry cleaning services on site and many more.
PTO could be much better but managers tend to be lenient and will work with you. It's fast paced and continually changing; not for those who become complacent in their job. High performance standards, although, for the most part I believe this is a chance to rise to the occasion and like stated above, will go noticed by management.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Power Design (Clearwater, FL) in September 2015.
Lengthy phone interview with opportunities to really show your personal style and experience. Took about 1 hour with an company HR Recruiter on the other side of the line. At the end I was tasked with designing a business plan for a potential project with very little guidelines and a 48 hour turnaround time. Got it done and then was offered a face to face interview with key managers. Impressive facilities, very modern look accompanied with a classic "work hard, play hard" company policy to which everyone seemed to buy into. I got the notion that work/life balance was not something on their radar and that everything was rewarded with cash, gifts and experiences rather than actually promoting balance. This may not matter to engineer types that make up a large part of their workforce, but to people with families and better balance in their lives this may be an issue. Again, this is all from spending just about 2 hours at headquarters, given a tour and an panel interview, so take it for what it is worth. Again and again during the process, the "GO BIG or GO HOME" type of mantra was repeated, not to say this is a negative but should be considered a factor when making a career decision.
