I have been working at American Water

Pros

Fantastic Benefits packages, great job security, good advancement opportunities.

Cons

Company is antiquated in the way it is organized and in technology use and information sharing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in company specific, cross-program relationship database of all assets (people, places, permits, assets, real-time data, GPS information, etc). Invest in future technologies and alternative energies and energy efficiencies (solar, wind, wave, biodiesel, biogas, etc.).
