    I have been working at San Antonio Water System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits (although they are getting more expensive); pensions completely funded by SAWS (recently changing); people are generally friendly; many people stay for years (very low turnover in corporate positions); tuition reimbursement very generous

    Cons

    Lack of development in lower level employees, leads to increased difficulty in upward mobility; managers in high positions do not leave; low ability for flex work schedule

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at San Antonio Water System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    SAWS offers competitive pay, solid benefits including a retirement system virtually unmatched in the private sector. I've found my coworkers to be intelligent and hardworking people. The primary headquarters complex is a modern building conveniently located just north of downtown.

    Cons

    The HR department does a terrible job weeding out problem employees. The running joke is that you can do pretty much anything you want, including assaulting a supervisor, but look at just one boobie on the Internet and you're out of here! There are known cases of repeat problem employees being put on paid administrative leave in excess of 16 weeks, then being allowed to return to work.
