Customer Care AKA the Forgotten Ones (Former Employee)
Alton, IL

I worked at American Water

ProsThe benefits were great,and it was close to my home at the time.

ConsNo chance for advancement, unless you were the chosen few. The same people were the only ones getting promoted.
It didn't matter how qualified or educated and professional your were. I've seen folks with MBA's get passed up by "others" who barley had GED's. They were in the loop.

Advice to Senior ManagementWatch your back!!!! American Water has been known to promote you right out the door. I've seen it happen twice. Also,they have changed presidents 6 times in 5 years...hint,hint. Not a good sign.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
