    Pros

    Great team work support. Dedicated employees.

    Cons

    People team needs improvement and more experience managing HR overall. They always seem so cold and upset no one feels comfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management be respectful and treat everyone like you would like to be treaded. Very dissapointing to see upper management raising their voice and treating some so bad very sad.

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Having the opportunity to work, as compared to not work.

    Cons

    Getting rid of employees, cut back on salaries due to outsourcing. All the managers and the director who interviewed me, to hire me. All got fired. The job security is always on the tight rope depending your position. The 5th floor is considered a lower class than the 6th floor.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you save your money for that rainy day, because when you get that pat on the back from human resources. Everybody in that company is REPLACEABLE, except for David Hernandez.

    Advice to Management

    Make the customer first as success will follow.

    I worked at Liberty Power Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of talented and hard-working people at all levels. Healthy on-campus dining option which the company subsidizes. No dress code. Better than average benefits package. Job autonomy. Interesting, challenging, competitive industry. Competitive pay. Leadership takes care of friends and family. They don't actually kill your mom or rape your dad. Young, dynamic CIO is trying to update processes and architecture.

    Cons

    IT product owners are reluctant to adopt best practices either in process or architecture. Severe negative attitude of the Business towards IT is prohibitive to progress. Always trying to sell, sell, sell to mitigate problems instead of addressing fundamentals and building core competencies. Shady Legal department drafts ridiculous contracts (like agreeing to job termination if you quit using tobacco) which the company forces the employees to sign, even if the contract is not applicable to the employee. No sex in the champagne room.

    Advice to Management

    Take your list of 23 "values" and pick the 7 at which you think as a company you can actually excel so you don't come off as hypocrites to your employees (you can always add more later).
    Accept change. Accept goddam change.
    Since your sales are handled largely by third parties, Marketing and Forecasting are the two core competencies that allow you to differentiate from the competition, so focus on those: market to improve your brand reputation and stop using off-the-shelf solutions for forecasting.

    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
