I have been working at Waters full-time for more than 10 yearsPros
Waters is an innovative company which generally hires motivated and knowledgeable people. Many of the company employees are long tenured employees, which makes it easier to build on the technological innovation, and overall knowledge base. It's relatively easy to find an expert in many areas to consult with on projects or issues.Cons
Most recently it appears the tenured people are less valued and there seems to be a movement to reduce the average tenure from it's present 13 years mean.
Waters can be a difficult place to institute change. Once on a specific direction the management doesn't like to change even if the path seems incorrect.
Employees with low performance are rarely addressed and this issue is sometimes management's fault but worse yet HR are less likely to assist.
There are continual reduction of benefits, most recently the healthcare plan was changed to Cigna which is a subpar provider.Advice to ManagementAdvice
