    I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of good opportunities while company was private. Pay good for well qualified employees, and regular bonuses. Improving the work environment by refurbishing HQ building (new lunchroom - finally).

    Cons

    Lack of ideas on preparing employees for promotion, dysfunctional internal posting. Losing cohesive vision by creating intra-divisional rivalry - could lead to loss of optimal decision making

    Advice to Management

    Train employees to advance them rather than continuously hire outside. This will breed loyalty and maintain the culture which made Generac successful.

    I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Field based, visit corporate once per quarter

    Cons

    gPS tracker on company vehicles Nd they use it constantly

    Advice to Management

    Trust the people you hire. Stock benefits , opened at 14 about 4 years ago, now trading in the $50 dollar range. Stock options for executives, all became millionaires overnight. Employees had to buy through their personal broker at the public price
