    I worked at Generac Power Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    New office facilities
    Reasonable pay with bonus potential
    Knowledgable, young, and intelligent CEO
    Good working hours and work/life balance

    Cons

    Huge emphasis on cost reductions - not just cost-effective, but cheap
    Not much room for advancement despite being very top-heavy with VP's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working to change the culture to one of providing "value" and not simply "cheap" products.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Generac Power Systems.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email a few weeks later to set up a phone interview with the recruiter. The questions were pretty typical interview questions, nothing too unexpected. At the end of the call, I was offered an on-site interview, which we set up for the next week. The on-site interview included 3 separate one-on-one interviews with people I would be working with, mostly reviewing my resume and talking about the position and the recruiter told me to expect to hear back by the end of the week. I was offered the position later that day.
