    Pros

    Big company, loads of responsibility early on. Thrown into it all. Great to be part of a company on the up. Keeping tap water tasty and safe. Love being able to say I'm part of that.

    Cons

    Massive companies take time to change. There's also a lot of layers of management which can dilute messages from the top down or bottom up.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and into the field as often as possible.


  2. Need to get the basics right

    Advice to Management
