    Current Employee - Worker Bee  in  Houston, TX

    I have been working at Severn Trent Services full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too far gone to make substantial change with current management.

    Current Employee - Maintenance Electrician III  in  Austin, TX
    Current Employee - Maintenance Electrician III in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Severn Trent Services full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Former Employee - Human Resources Administrator  in  Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Human Resources Administrator in Houston, TX

    I worked at Severn Trent Services full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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