    Pros

    The peaks are not very high and the valleys are very low. I read a recent review of another company in the same industry and the quote was "no one knows what they are doing or what the direction of the company is" . The same can be said about Aqua. It is not run like a $5B market cap business. It is run by one man who wont let go and even when he "retires" he will still be around. It is run like his own little toy and micro managed down to the light bulbs in the building.

    Cons

    id say see above. I am thankful to have a job. the CEO has rewarded himself greatly over the last few years knowing he is going to retire yet over the life of his tenure his employees have been paid an ABYSMAL salary. Its a joke. So far under the standard across the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the fluff, stop with the "we are a cutting edge high tech company....One Company philosophy"....all BS. You are a Water Utility. You will only grow when someone wants to sell at or below rate base. which means you are not going to grow by purchasing municipalities that do not want sell and you cannot afford even if they wanted to sell. Pay according to industry standards. Stop the bullying of employees. Morale is so low already. Its obvious and apparent. You have an HR issue ready to explode.
