    Too many chiefs, not enough braves.

    I have been working at Xylem full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Steady, varying work. Good benefits package including tuition reimbursement and career development. A high degree of industry leading technology at your disposal. Highly technical business to become involved with.

    Cons

    Opportunities to advance are drying up. When it used to be a part of ITT, you got out of it what you put in. Now that it is a pure water play company with new Senior Executives, share holder wishes take precedence and profit is the only goal. Greedily jumped at the "Emerging Markets" without any notion of what obstacles lay ahead. Ethics become blurred when dealing in the Emerging Market arena. Organization has become top-heavy to the tune of 60% greater work force than before--mostly new management and "idea guy" positions. The increase in employees has NOT resulted in increased business or market share. Company has only grown inorganically through acquisition of other water industry companies. Twice the amount of revenue used to be achieved with about half of the current work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop throwing away the old guard of experienced (usually 30+ years) technically adept workers. Stop falling for the sales pitch of millennials who have oversold their resume. Invest in the already present employees who have shown initiative and quit wishing that some "perfect candidate" will just show up on our doorstep. Be more judicious about trying something "new" just for the sake of it being "new." Educate everyone on the fundamental aspects of their duties rather than how it specifically applies to a single task. Find a sales force with at least a basic understanding of the technical aspects of the product--not just know: "ours is better than the competitor." Stop tracking data that will provide no benefit once analyzed; further more properly quantify--not qualify--the data collected.
