      Great long term company

      Aug 23, 2020 - Project Engineer in San Diego, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Company is employee owned and thus nice and steady. Yes, they are conservative, but its for the long-term benefits of those who stick around. Very relaxed environment and getting more flexible with time. They've adapted well to COVID (got sent to WFH early and not planning to return for quite a while) in part because they were already updating systems to allow more remote work before this all happened. Offices has remained available for essential activities, even if "essential" involves getting away from family for a bit. Miss seeing my coworkers while stuck at home, but still interact regularly online and looking forward to getting back.

      Cons

      Salaries are based on performance, so sometimes start a bit low. Bonuses and promotions make up for that with high performers.

      Pros

      Great Team to work with, very flexible compared to most companies, allows WFH and hybrid settings

      Cons

      Can be bureaucratic at times, some "pull back" from managers to avoid making mistakes. Overall it's not too bad though! Could use a bit more diversity. Lots of peer pressure to work more.

      Good Company, Terrible Onboarding

      Apr 30, 2021 - Senior Electrical Distribution Designer in Phoenix, AZ

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company itself is great company. They are employee owned, medical is good and affordable, they are good about sharing financials and very relaxed office environment.

      Cons

      The people!!!!! Onboarding process is terrible. You have to definitely hit the ground running. Distribution department is a bit snooty and not very helpful, you have to self teach a lot of things. That being said, I came in during covid, and feel that my experience was due to Power not knowing how we to adjust to remote onboarding.

      Culture Driven

      Feb 17, 2021 - Project Lead I in Fort Mill, SC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      POWER is employee-owned and employee-focused. POWER has figured out the delicate balance of putting its employees at the top of the priority list without neglecting clients. Do good work, make money, and have fun. That's the culture and it comes from the top, so it's never threatened by managerial decisions.

      Cons

      Offices are sometimes run differently and this can create confusion or lack of consistency regarding procedures and deliverables from time to time.
