    I worked at XP Power full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, lots of socializing in most departments, usually sounds like a party going on. Only manufacturing and warehouse work hard. Many good people work there.

    Cons

    Very low pay, low morale, run like a mom and pop operation. There is one blatantly highly favored department (sales), everyone else is expendable. Hardest workers are paid the least. Poor management, very poor working environment. I would not recommend XP to anyone. I worked there several years and left on my own. This review applies to Sunnyvale location only, I've had no experience at other locations.
