I lead talent management efforts at Palladium Energy. I talk with potential candidates (a lot of engineers—as we are always looking for talented people in this function) all day, every day. The question I get asked the most is: What is it REALLY like to work at Palladium? In order to answer this, I want to walk you through my personal job-seeking experience to share some best practices AND let you hear it from the horse’s mouth (well, an engineer’s mouth really) …
When I was looking for my next career move, I spent lots of time customizing my resume, networking and doing company research. I wanted to be ready when I landed an interview and made sure that I walked away with a clear idea of what would be waiting for me if received and accepted the job offer.
In order to be super prepared, one of the first things I asked myself was: Who do I know there? As you can imagine, having someone on “the inside” was extremely valuable in order to gain insight into the company, its culture and what it’s like day-in and day-out. This “inside” person was a current or ex-employee, a friend or relative, or anyone else who was in a position to have good information on what it was really like to be a part of the organization. Of course, I didn’t always have an “inside” person but when I did the information they provided was beyond insightful.
Consider me your “inside” person when it comes to answering: What is it REALLY like to work at Palladium? I put on my reporter hat (us HR types really do wear many different hats) to do a bit of snooping in our engineering department to get the real deal just for you. And don’t worry…you can thank me later!
Here is some verbatim feedback from Palladium’s own engineering team…
“It’s pretty cool to do “hard core” custom design work and own it from concept to production.”
“We get to work on a variety of projects across multiple markets (medical, military and consumer) and that’s huge as it broadens our skillset and expertise (we don’t work in silos!!!).”
”We are intentional about creating a vibrant culture where we REALLY do work as a team. You are never left out there to figure things out all by your lonesome.”
“We are a talented and fun group (we work in a secluded engineering and technology center that has a relaxed, but energetic and innovation-focused atmosphere) that works hard to give our customers what they want to give them the competitive edge to power their devices.”
Well, there you have it…working at Palladium in the engineering department is centered around working with a great team that’s willing to support you while you work on a variety of power solutions to deepen your skillset that really makes a difference in the world! Not many folks are able to do that.
