    I have been working at Waters full-time (more than 3 years)


    Waters makes strategic and carefully calculated moves in order to retain its workforce = no layoffs = job security. Each individual or contributor at least what I've seen is treated with respect and is encouraged to develop and grow within the company. Many people retire from Waters, people who have been here a long time and that's a great sign!! Also, plenty of corporate discounts (some free)offered by Waters on movie tickets, several amusement parks, museums, the aquarium!!! In addition, I have seen others receive and been a recipient myself of "outstanding achievement awards" which just adds to the incentive to work hard and smart and you will be recognized.


    Because of fiscal conservativeness the yearly increase isn't always optimal especially when the cost of living and medical benefit costs go up, but Waters does its best to offer great benefits at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the innovations coming and continue your support of your employees both past and present.
