Current Employee - Manager in Voorhees, NJ

I have been working at American Water full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are awesome - health care costs reasonable w/good coverage, great 401K match and no vesting period, stock purchase plan, sick leave, and other nice benefits.

Cons

The IT department had really turned around until the recent leadership change. Now it's not a fun place to work and there is no access to the CIO. We used to be listened to and now we're not. All the good talent is looking for options outside AW.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There were reasons we became on of the best places to work. Perhaps the organization should reflect on those things and work to go back to that culture and value and respect for people.
