    I worked at American Water

    Pros

    American water provides excelent benifits and compenstation is nearly on par with the levels in other industries and employers while providing a work enviroment that is not hostile by showing respect to it's employees.

    Cons

    At American Water some positions, specifically in technology positions, are only available in certain regions of the country; if you live in New Jersey you will be OK.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One thing I disliked about working at American Water was the review and goal setting process, it was difficult to understand and was argumentative since experice with it indicated you had to be ready to defend yourself and you should expect to have to "sell" you good points.

    I have been working at American Water

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits package and reasonable pay increases. American Water also has a good tuition reembursement program, and it is fairly easy to get approved by Management.

    Cons

    American Water does not offer many advancement opportunities for its employees. The employee appraisal review process is ridiculous. You rarely feel valued and appreciated by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee retention should become a priority for the company. There aren't many job advancement opportunities within the company. The company continues to lose good people even in this economy.
