The laser seems to cut and engrave well in some locations but have less power in other spots. Is this normal?

No, the power output should be consistent across the work area.  More than likely this is a symptom of poor mirror alignment or not having the bed level.  This causes the laser to not be properly focused everywhere within the work area.
