    Pros

    When looking for a career, it's always fair to ask a set of questions to gauge the company fit, growth opportunity, compensation, etc. You can be certain that Power offers an opportunity for immense earning potential, and given the nature of the business (on-call, one call close environment) your rewards are directly correlated to the amount of effort and dedication that you put into the position. You quickly find that those who fully immerse themselves into the company culture, in training sessions and boot-camps, are the ones who rise to the managerial positions and typically stay there. Regarding the culture, you have to understand that you are on-call 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday) within this role, so your work friends are your only real source of support and provides a unique cultural environment. A real work-hard/play hard mentality exists here, from weekly hangouts to an all inclusive yearly trip to Cancun in December.

    In summary: you get out what you put in, and how far you go within the ranks is how much of the kool-aid you're willing to drink.

    Cons

    This position is 100% commission based, so if you are not in a financially stable position, prepare to struggle for the first few months. You will receive $2000 over the first 4 weeks, which constitutes the advertised 'base salary,' but after that you're on your own. While there is no cold-calling required for the sales position (the marketing department knocks door to door, works trade shows to generate the appointments), you will be on-call from 7:30am to 7:30/8pm every day and have to leave at the drop of a hat to reach the appointment on time. You also won't be compensated for your gas/mileage, so if you are not performing you are essentially paying to be a part of the company. Finally, this is a one call close environment, so if you uncomfortable with a passive but high-pressure sales approach, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    You certainly have a winning formula in your business model, and you can clearly prove that with your rate of growth over the past years. I would, however, recommend that in choosing leaders within the organization that more factors are considered than solely Dollar Per Lead Issued; just because someone is a great salesman does not guarantee they will be a great leader. You have lost too many solid employees because of this line in the sand and would benefit greatly if you can find a way to improve upon a 5-6 month average employee turnover.

    Pros

    Power provides an environment for consistent and rapid growth challenging a persons comfort zone and current abilities. Power has given the young professional and the sales industry a true place to have a career. Those with little direction and untapped potential can find a home here.

    There is a clear blueprint/ formula that makes this company tick and that has made me found success.

    -The company is completely merit based. How hard you work is how much you are worth. The intangibles of true hard work, communication, drive and teamwork that may not fully be instilled at college are certainly added to the persons character at Power. With this focus rapid growth tends to occur if you want it.

    -This is not a cut-throat sales position. Everyone can eat, in fact its encouraged to help those to the left and right. The atmosphere is pumped with this untouched energy and enthusiasm to be the best. The idea of work hard play hard really holds True at power. A people first attitude breeds fun and incentives.

    Power people have an edge on other remodeling companies. If you are looking for the best tools and innovation, Power is cutting edge with products and instruments for presenting information. They are constantly looking for ways to differentiate from a troubled industry. A different product or method is usually presented to the employees every quarter.

    Earning potential is very good. Many ways to make money and grows with time. Commissions are high for the industry from what Ive seen

    Managers are home-grown. They know the business from the ground up. More importantly players are made coaches. The managers have been in every single problem and scenario a sales consultant will face and therefore can provide precise and rapid advice.

    It is hard not to develop as a person when every day you are being challenged and forced to learn from failure and success.

    Cons

    the hours can be challenging but then again anyone making 6 figures works more than most
