I have been working at Xylem

Pros

Great benefits but costs have increased this year so it's gotten expensive

Cons

Most major decisions require several approvals and can take months implement. I've seen a lot of turnover in the last couple of years and the process for replacing these roles takes so long.

    I have been working at Xylem full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    there is plenty of opportunity here for those who are motivated and willing to dig in; water will be a hugely important industry for the country and the planet over the next several decades

    Cons

    overly process-oriented, can be slow; difficult to navigate the organization, some resistance to change. many pine for "the good old days" vs seeing out the new frontiers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    enable employees to focus on what's really important and say no to the rest

    I worked at Xylem full-time

    Pros

    Excellent rep sales organization. Good product portfolio and brand recognition. Global opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Rep sales organization has a stronger influence on the company than the management team. Lack of accountability in the work culture. Poor global vision. Management does not seem to have a good grip on how things get done and how the organization should be structured to do work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not going to drive the organization, then hire good folks and get out of the way. Don't bite off more than you can chew. Understand your organizational limitations, work within its capability, and then focus on improving that capability
