    I have been working at Liberty Power Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job freedom. I'm able to do my job with reasonable flexibility to be able to have a good life balance. Allowed me and other peers to be able to grow with the company. Reasonable benefits (used to be really great), good pay.
    There are some good people in the company that are working hard to keep it competitive, senior management has matured and is better aligned than before.
    No dress code, cafetería and good company sponsored parties. CEO and CFO do care about the company and employees and treat them with respect

    Cons

    There used to be free massages, not anymore. Company is still relatively young so it is still learning to mature and delegate responsibilities. Some bureocracy and politics still exist

    Advice to Management

    Trust your partners and team, allow them the opportunity to have independence and release them from micromanaging their activities. Listen to your team more closely

    I have been working at Liberty Power Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There use to be a lot of good people who worked here. Many good people left for good reasons or they just got laid off.

    Cons

    No leadership, always changing direction of what is important. Management is not consistent. Family member involved in every department. This way the can put their own spin on things. No upward movement for long term employees. They do not move people up from within , Salaries are not competitive with others they bring in from large companies. They interview people from other companies just to get information and have no intention of hiring you.

    Advice to Management

    I would have some, but they don't listen or really care. They say they do but don't, Their say they have core values but maybe the management team should really understand them first as it all starts at the top with the owners. They need to trust their employees.

    I have been working at Liberty Power Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None at this time I am very disappointed.

    Cons

    I am so sadden to see employees that have been part of this company for years moving on because of no direction from upper management. They don't care about their employees or families.

    Advice to Management

    You will loose a lot more team members, because company owners are no longer part of or care of the hard working employees that have been their for them for a long time.. Direction that comes from VP's that are rude, and inconsiderate. Ask questions to current employees and you will be totally upset on what is going on with some of us. There is no confidentiality at all. SAD to say am looking to move on to a company that cares and offers me more stability and respect.

    You get a weekly paycheck and bennifits

    Cons

    Very Corrupt company. Managers feed their friends the big accounts, and there is a lot of unethical things going on.

    Advice to Management

    Fire employee's doing fraud and being fed deals and hire honest people.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Your success depends entirely on who you work for. If you land on the right team, you can have great success. Coworkers are mostly amazing, and they want to work together to take care of the team and fix the problems.

    The occasional morale-boosting event, like holiday lunches, chair massages, annual picnic.

    Easy access to the highway and tri-rail.

    Cons

    If you get hired on to one of the more fickle teams, good luck. Some of the management (and management wanna-be's) have excellent gaslighting skills and will change the job description, expectations, and responsibilities without telling you, and then blame you for not being up to date.

    Same management team likes to hire replacements before they let the replacee go so that the new person can get trained before they fire the original employee. They will tell the new-hire (and other members of the team) what the plan is, and then tell them not to let the existing employee know. Lots of rumor-mongering and back-stabbing within those teams.

    Upper management does not understand how IT works, and sets unrealistic expectations for how the teams should operate, interfering with process or asking to change direction on no notice.

    If they try to extend your "contract-to-hire" contract, take that as an immediate sign that they are preparing to replace you, and start looking for something new.

    Advice to Management

    You have a 29-point treatise on "The Liberty Power Way" that you like to remind everyone of. However, the teams could use a refresher. Have everyone go back and re-read 3, 5, 6, 11 (!), 21, and 28.

    Pay attention to the teams with high turnover... it may not be a staff problem. And when multiple employees come to you with concerns or complaints about one specific person or team, take them seriously.

    Pros

    Hard working people with great attitude across the board. Your ideas are heard and plenty of growth opportunity within the company.

    Cons

    Unless you come from the outside, company won't pay your worth. It is only after you show desire to leave the company where they will counter offer, but more often than not, it is already too late.

    Advice to Management

    Allow mid level managers to make decisions. Plenty of times the big decisions are controlled by Senior Leadership Team, causing delays on implementation.

    I worked at Liberty Power Corp full-time

    Pros

    Started out as one of the BEST companies in Florida to work for.

    Cons

    Use to be a corporation with a mom and pop environment. Then they became corporate, only metric driven company, totally forgetting it wasn't metrics that kept them afloat when the banks crashed and their competition died out but investing and cross-training their dedicated, hard working people

    Advice to Management

    Degrees are good to have but it should NEVER outweigh dedication. Stop to listen to your staff, they work and encounter things you and your metric don't. You made intelligent people who LOVED truly loved the company become work monkeys. Never listening..just metric driven. I grew personally and professionally there. I will never have a bad thing say. The Hernandez family is an awesome group of people and great businessmen, just got away from what made them special & different.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit, great colleagues, opportunity to learn on the job. This can be a great opportunity if you want it to be, particularly for mid-management. This is not a place for everyone, but if you like a fast-paced environment it can be rewarding.

    Cons

    Competing and constantly changing priorities. Tough environment for all retails suppliers right now - Liberty Power has felt the impact like its competitors, which is taking time and resources away from employee engagement. Suffering from a threadbare People Team doing the best they can.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and reward employees when the business is able. Live the Liberty Power Way every day. Rebuild the People Team ASAP.
