I have been working at Power Design full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

• There’s always something to do, never time to watch the clock.
• The company does fun events for its team members.
• Power Design takes pride in our office and enjoys giving company tours.
• The company hires from within so there’s always room for growth.

Cons

• Since we’re understaffed there’s not enough time in the day to do all of the expected work.
• The PTO structure is very different from what I feel other companies are doing today.

Advice to Management

• Consider not having forced PTO days like Presidents Day, Good Friday, etc.
• Consider giving bereavement to utilize for immediate family members.

    Beautiful facility
    Immense in house training and supports external as well
    Executives work hard to keep improving process
    Truly care about their employees and retention
    Company is growing providing a lot of opportunity for their employees

    Cons

    The company is growing and so is the workload. The hours and management can be demanding but it is usually rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    I have seen a lot of improvement with on boarding and training new personnel as well as increased appreciation for current employees. Keep it up!

    I worked at Power Design full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office, gorgeous girls all around, some opportunities for promotion.
    I can't complain too much, everything they promised to do for me they did. But I did see an incredible amount of people getting fired while I was there. You literally don't know who will be in the cubicle next to you by the end of the day.

    Cons

    Very high turnover. CEO hires people based on their looks not qualifications. I had two Bucs cheerleaders sit next to me working as project engineers with education that had nothing to do with the job. Nice girls but dumb as rocks.
    People are promoted or fired based on looks and character, not abilities.
    The pay was pathetic. They did give me a raise three times during first year. But you have to push for it hard.
    CEO has a very short temper. Can fire people on the spot if you get an argument with him on a bad day. Saw a few senior managers fired that way.
    Overall, ok company for a quick 1-2 year stint out of college. You get experience, they get a low wage worker. Keep in mind, they are a SUB, not GC, for all those college grads, this is a step down.

    Advice to Management

    Stop caring about money so much. We get it that CEO drives a maserati and makes a ton of money. But share something with your employees. A 401K match would be nice for example. Stop hiring girls based on their bra size. I was sick of dealing with dumb blonds who have never been out in the field.
