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

    Pros

    Well financed company with a brand that grabs your attention. The owner has a great 401K program.

    Cons

    Executive Management is changing direction constantly. The communication with upper level management is based on putting out fires rather than obtaining and executing successful opportunities. They portray to their customers that they self perform the work being provided to their customers however they outsource over 95% of the work to subcontractors. The company is EXCESSIVELY SLOW to make a decision and tend to be focused on the negative and tear down an employee rather than give them the tools to succeed and build their knowledge base.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees and communicate in a way that adds value rather than looking for the negative potential in all opportunities.
