Pros

Power is a company that is currently on the rise. For only being a 20 year old company that is still expanding, both internally and externally, the senior management has a well structured business model. The compensation has endless possibilities, as well as upward growth within the company.

Cons

The hours are long and the job can be stressful, but the compensation makes up for it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more transparent and don't throw money at every problem in the marketing department.

    Former Employee - Field Marketer in Marlborough, MA (US)

    Pros

    Ability to make good money
    Cool young atmosphere
    The job is a joke

    Cons

    You are told work 11-7, more like 10 - 830
    You are told $200 per estimate.....not told you need to get 5 before making money
    You are told you control your own destiny, but after a month or two easily noticible most go nowhere
    The way the office is run, if the boss tells you to be there for 930 plan on starting at 10
    3 managers have quit in the short time ive been there
    Turnover rate kills morale

    Pros

    There are SOME marketers that are doing good and making decent money. The rest are making $30k-$37k a year.
    If you get promoted to van manager or into sales, there is potential to make 50k+.
    No managers checking up on you every 5 minutes. You're out on your own all day.
    Young crew, could be cool sometimes. Some could be a little immature or annoying.

    Cons

    50+ hours a week for $500/wk? Do the math... Not worth it.
    You go in at 11am and don't start work until about 3ish. I'd rather be with my family instead of a bunch of dudes.

    The call center has some of the most unprofessional people I've ever worked with. And they will not schedule an appointment for very stupid reasons.

    Working on cold rainy/snowy days, risking pneumonia, frost bite, etc.

    A lot of LYING. They lead you to believe that you can make $60k+ as a marketer. If you can, you're the man but don't count on it. They tell you that everyone goes into marketing before they go into sales which is a lie. Some salesmen in there never did marketing for power.
    They say you'll work from 11a-7p. LIES! You head back to the office at 8pm on most days. Expect to be home at 9pm.

    Getting to the office at 11am and the meeting could start at 11:30 or noon. Wasted time and you don't get paid hourly.

    Van managers taking good territory for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shorten the hours. Start earlier and end earlier.
    Knocking on doors after 6pm when its dark out is mad creepy.
    Give marketers credit for any "call backs" or any leads that the MARKETER generated.

    Hire a completely brand new staff for the call center. Not only are they discouraging your marketers, they're costing you money by making potential customers NEVER want to deal with Power
