I have been working at American Water

Pros

Very ethical Company.
Excellent Benefits
Good pay
Strong industry and more secure then others
Employees are treated with respect and dignity

Cons

Sometimes not as forward thinking and moves more slowly in that venue. Requires an idea to be put forward multiple times in some instances before it takes hold and moves forward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to move forward in our beliefs and values. While we are a regulaqted Company and do not have direct competion,we need to continue to act like a competitive organizaiton in order to be the best we can be.

    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.
