I worked at Mueller Water Products full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The work life balance depending on the department you work in is fair. The segment headquarters (i.e., Mueller, Anvil, and US Pipe) are filled with intelligent individuals that know how to get things done. Compensation is way way above average for a company of this size.

Cons

However, the same cannot be said for the corporate management team in Atlanta. Based on my experience, the less intelligent you are the higher you can rise through the ranks. Promotions are purely based on politics. If you dare acknowledge that the emperor has no clothes, you will be shown the door. The CEO is not very dynamic, and they have been running the company without a real CFO for at least six years, which was exposed by MWP receiving two consecutive material weaknesses over its financial reporting controls. This place is a mess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire a real CEO and CFO. Reward honesty and integrity, and stop sweeping problems under the rug.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are about average for the current economy. Company is great about giving time off to take care of personal business.

    Cons

    Virtually no room for growth in . Management talks about change to improve company but little is done because company lacks personnel and funding to make changes. Manufacturing is all contracted out to other companies in Mexico and China for the most part. This poses a problem controlling quality and cost for a company that makes mostly custom products. Some past/current employees like to stretch the truth and are less than ethical in their business practices. Past employees thought that by not sharing knowledge they were ensuring their position, that did not work out well for them or the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need to make major changes. Most of the changes that need to be made are in the hands of Hydro Gates sister company and parent company. Major investment in competent personnel and a manufacturing facility are needed to become the leader in a broken sub-par industry.
