    I have been working at Generac Power Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generac is investing a lot in its welding departments and doing a good job at getting employee feedback on any type of issue in the workplace

    Cons

    It’s impossible to get fired from this place over lack of productivity unless you’re really trying and they hire shady people with checkered backgrounds. Being a motivated employee this is challenging to work around. As gratifying as a honest days work is it’s really demotivating to see someone get laid the same to do a third as much work.

    Worked for a great VP, decent pay.

    Don't expect a long term career as many will undermine you if they don't like you personally. Forced to sell inferior products with little backend support.
