Chaotic collection of operations. Undergoing organizational change unleashing wave after wave of disruption.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at American Water

ProsBig company recognized as a leader in the utility vertical. National presence with operations in different states. Leadership seeking to drive on efficiencies

ConsHighly dysfunctional organization with a toxic culture. Currently focusing on implementing a business transformation program without truly understanding the nature of their current operations. Clear disconnect between executive management, middle management, and employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a step back and seriously review the current course of the business transformation program and how to achieve the vision. Assess the situation honestly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
