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

Pros

Great product and brand recognition in the market. For an engineer you really get exposed to the full product rather than working on 1 part of the generator.

Cons

Stuck in your position.
EVERYTHING rolls downhill. They hire more and more management, but the responsibilities kept falling more and more on the lower level workers.
Sales dictates Engineering and they do not allow for enough time for testing.

Advice to Management

Promote from within!

    I have been working at Generac Power Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company gave me amazing personal development skills and assisted me in creating an amazing resume in sales and helped me land an amazing job elsewhere. The Benefits were outstanding. The employee picnics are wonderful because they have free beer so you can forget about work for once on there dime.

    Cons

    The pay was really poor especially since the sales departments are usually short staffed with absolutely no extra compensation but yes to extra stress. It feels like I was back in school with all of the extra non sense they throw at you every week from left field with due dates!! Any issues start with the sales rep. Then get passed to a department with one great lady in there. The company over works you and under pays you. Watch out for the "executive team" and the Many vp's they have. You have to thresten to leave to get a raise. Promotions are not handed out. No opportunities to move to outside sales as they claim "this is where it starts as an isr and then you get to outside sales" yeah, you get the amazing training and go make bank elsewhere by finding s great company and promoting yourself!! You don't matter but the company does. No hurricanes, no sales, no bonuses. Rename sales reps. To account executives or managers.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to do more team building activities with there employees more than once a year. They need to improve MANY processes which ultimately affects customers and end users then sales. Make this a commission job and drop the taxed 40% bonuses. In the world of sales- money motivates which drives sales.
