    Pros

    Pays higher-than-average salaries, offers terrific benefits, insurance & retirement plans, including pension & longevity bonuses. Many opportunities for training & skill development.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic/political environment. Because of low turnover, few opportunities for advancement (but longevity is rewarded). Somewhat slow-moving, both in operation and technological adoption.

    Pros

    Very good benefits; competitive salaries

    Cons

    If you're an employee in your mid- to late fifties, you'd better start looking over your shoulder

    Advice to Management

    Purge from within and start with the numerous individuals in senior management who are in their positions as a result of favoritism

    Pros

    I have never worked for a better employer in my 60+ years. Employees are respected and afforded many promotional opportunities. Senior Staff listens to employees needs and concerns and they respond quickly to resolve all issues. Employee Pay and benefits are excellent and the tools and equipment used by staff members are top of the line. Safety is number One priority and Customer satisfaction is the companies main business focus. You could not ask for a better place to work.

    Cons

    As an employee, The public often takes there frustrations of higher water bills out on us. I wish they knew how hard we work to keep costs down. I also wish they would partner with us by understanding the water crisis and how important it is to continue with plans to secure other options for our valleys water resources. Years down the road we will all benefit from the great leadership that got us through these trying times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Most of your employees are appreciative and proud to work for such a fine organization.

    Pros

    Good money to be made. 4 - 10 schedule. Onsite child care.

    Cons

    Sometimes has a "it's-who-you-know" feel when it comes to promotions and information.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up on your employees questions, suggestions, issues and requests. We are told to inquire about things but it seems that there's no action / reaction from management. Also, management doesn't seem to get to know us - even after years of employment. Reach out to the people you don't know, even if its uncomfortable for you to do so.

    Pros

    Good Benefits and a 3 day weekend. The pay is competitive to other companies. Vacation leave, holiday leave, sick days and personal days.

    Cons

    Too much internal politics. Management does not respect others and is very secretive. Coworker incompetency. People don't get fired, instead are promoted (or moved) to get the person off the team. Moving people does not address the issue.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some respect and treat us "underlings" like we know something. There are nothing in the matters of national security that can not be conveyed to the teams, after all, we're just in the business of delivering water.
