    Focused on the short term - stock price and dividend growth. Unpleasant culture.

    I have been working at American Water full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are fair. It is a good place for someone looking gain experience in the water industry.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is terrible. The company is solely focused on inflating the stock price and dividend growth. They are reducing head counts and budgets. The remaining employees are left to pick up the slack and work harder. The company discourages overtime unless you're a salaried employee. Then they don't care how late you have to work as long as your work is completed.
    It is becoming very difficult to meet our financial goals because they are constantly changing. It is hard to hit a moving target. Our bonuses and increases are shrinking, while the executive team reaps enormous rewards in salary, bonuses, and stock options.
    The culture in Indiana is very bad. The feeling of job security does not exist. The vice-president has exhibited clear nepotism in his hiring practices. He uses intimidation as his management style.
    The leadership constantly talks about safety but they commit no resources towards it.
    There are many behavior/ethics/conduct/human resources policies in place but the company routinely disregards their own written policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recent culture survey was a very weak method to gauge employee attitudes. If you really are concerned, then create an anonymous way for employees to share their thoughts. The majority will not share their concerns because they feel like their jobs will be in jeopardy.
    Recruit more qualified managers.
