    Pros

    Excellent Executive leadership. Can learn a lot in short amount of time. Given significant responsibility quickly. Excellent benefits. People have a great "can do" attitude. Looking forward to new technology platform.

    Cons

    Limited training. Thrown in the deep end and must learn to swim fast. R&D has missed several dates for new products.

    Advice to Management

    Develop stronger training for new employees.

    I have been working at PowerPlan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great perks, casual attire in the office. Great snacks, and always free food around.

    Cons

    If you do not know SQL, and you don't have any accounting knowledge you will struggle, and be expected to "figure it out". The company has grown so fast that they do not have a training department that can train new employees. You are often assigned tasks that you are not qualified to perform and then frowned upon because you struggled to perform them as an expert.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your clients and your employees. They are both very unhappy.

    Pros

    Restrooms are nice; two kitchens.

    Cons

    Favoritism- They favor Georgia Tech/UGA/Vanderbilt grads. If you’ve graduated elsewhere, don’t be surprised if you’re placed in a role that doesn’t get paid as much, or treated as you’re not good enough—talent doesn’t really matter. PowerPlan expects a you to learn this difficult software in a short space of time and frown on you if you ask for help.

    I worked at PowerPlan full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, but not great. Accumulate travel points/miles quickly

    Cons

    Very passive-aggressive environment. This comes from hiring a lot of engineers who can't communicate effectively. No real structure on how to use the best skill sets of employees

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade technology, look for other growth avenues.

    I worked at PowerPlan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team members are excellent.

    Cons

    You will work 80 hours and travel Monday through Thursday. There is way too much work and not enough work life balance. If you leave, you will lose all vacation owed to you.

    Advice to Management

    Have better prices for insurance. Help to improve the employee satisfaction.

    I have been working at PowerPlan full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None come to mind. A few big name clients.

    Cons

    The interfaces look aged, the modules don’t function and when they do, new patches wipe older functionality. No clear direction on projects, the company and management company is feeling the burn of their incompetence slowly but surely. No work like balance depending on which department you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, work towards keeping your employees sane and happy, it might just improve every area of your organization. Stop trying to deflect and cover up everything and admit that the majority of the software is not in a functioning condition.
