    I worked at Severn Trent Services (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Multi National company with various products, activities and services.

    Cons

    Weak management that is not connected with the lower level of managers and absent from the front line. Reserve top positions as luck and to enjoy expensive travelling and entertainment. Few of the directors especially the HR and others do not honor their promises, words and they hide from the truth. Internal politics plays major role in decision making and strategies especially in STWP. They let many go without giving them their true rights.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in place of the people that served you with loyalty and look around you for people that are not loyal and using a company for their own interest. Do investigate yourself rather than listening to lies and false reports of your recent top managers.

    Pros

    Supplied with new tools and trucks to do the job. Coworkers were great.

    Cons

    Management seemed to be disorganized. Fired qualified workers to replace with kids in high school.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing your qualified workers for lame excuses

    Pros

    Initial great experience before company began acquiring smaller manufacturing facilities around the US.

    Cons

    Management, both corporate and local, have a resistance to listen to the 'worker bees' and learn from past mistakes.

    Too far gone to make substantial change with current management.

    I have been working at Severn Trent Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and 401k. Nice equipment. Very safety minded. pay is ok but you will not break the bank

    Cons

    little to no management, no feedback on work quality, rules are wrote in pencil, extreme amount of turmoil, gossip and drama. be prepared when you turn in your notice to leave (Austin, TX office) to be regarded as worthless and a traitor.

    Advice to Management

    Austin, TX office---Quit and do the company a favor and get off the 3% raise BS and pay your people to stay instead of pocketing the bonus money that you tell the employees don't exsist

    I worked at Severn Trent Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friday breakfasts, pay is decent

    Cons

    Unprofessional environment, unorganized structure, employees are overworked and spread too thin. Management is there to cover their own ass and are ready and willing to throw anyone under the bus at the drop of a hat. The Houston office is dilapidated, old-style management is apparent everywhere and new talent is not embraced - conform, get out, or get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Embrace new talent and provide proper training for every employee.
