Power-one is a company that could really grow & help a lot of people with their products but their management team needs to go. They have no clue of what they are doing from one week to the next. I have never seen so many meetings with management in my life. Their meeting all day long over every little thing. They all have cell phones, e-mail but they still meet at least 3-5 times a day to discuss problems & come up with solutions. Employees walk on egg shells there due to them putting a scare in everyone that they'll be let go. You have to have a relationship with the people who are doing all the work for you. Power-one makes a great product, they have intelligent people there but management is a major problem & they need to treat people equally & quit having favorites. They also need to quit bringing on people from Jabil, the two members of management who came from there almost put that company in the ground & now their doing the same with power-one. Good luck guys, hope things work out for you. Former employee who was let go

Power-One was a great place to advance in learning new skills to add to my job description. However, the company being "NEW" as that is all you ever hear, has a very long way to go. It has been up and running here in Arizona for about three years and the poor management will be the down fall of what could be a very prosperous company if they incorporated the "RIGHT" management team. Reading some of the comments, I would have to totally agree on the long hours, not caring for their employees, not giving any thought on how the "BIG PICTURE" looks. Instead, it is ran daily and therefore no one ever knows if they have a job from one day to the next. I had felt that it was all about numbers and NOT about QUALITY which is why it's in the shape it's in. Just ask any employee that is still fortunate to still have a position there. I enjoyed my work there and the co-workers were great. The training there is about NONE if that makes sense. I sincerely hope that Power-One whom ever is in charge takes a look at the overall problems that exist there. This can and should be a "BIG DEAL" for the economy here in Arizona.
