    Initial great experience before company began acquiring smaller manufacturing facilities around the US.

    Management, both corporate and local, have a resistance to listen to the 'worker bees' and learn from past mistakes.

    Current Employee - Maintenance Electrician III in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Severn Trent Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and 401k. Nice equipment. Very safety minded. pay is ok but you will not break the bank

    Cons

    little to no management, no feedback on work quality, rules are wrote in pencil, extreme amount of turmoil, gossip and drama. be prepared when you turn in your notice to leave (Austin, TX office) to be regarded as worthless and a traitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Austin, TX office---Quit and do the company a favor and get off the 3% raise BS and pay your people to stay instead of pocketing the bonus money that you tell the employees don't exsist

    Very neutral views towards the management of the plant operations. They work to stay where they are.

    Current Employee - Wastewater Operator in Glen Cove, NY

    I have been working at Severn Trent Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They will spend thousands of dollars training and educating you for their needs.They will send you to college to become state certified operators . They will pay for books ,certifications, room and board while at school.

    Cons

    They will not spend the money on keeping you with the company. They give very small raises if any. When you complain about the cost of living. They say well its the Matrix of the company. To try and keep costs down and profits up. They will lose a worker to competitors then give a pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the workers, see what there needs are or complaints. Most management seldom leave their office.

    Former Employee - Water Operator  in  Carmel, NY
    Former Employee - Water Operator in Carmel, NY

    I worked at Severn Trent Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was very enjoyable work, tough, physical but rewarding and the type of work I enjoy. The people I worked with where friendly and made the work day go by quickly.

    Cons

    Have to be on call for holidays and weekends. Have to work every other weekend (great for the overtime, which is helpful) and have to work selected holidays. Only thing is you get to decide and split up the holidays with whoever else works at the same plant as you so least you get to split it up evenly and fairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Notice your workers more and the long tough hours that people put in for you. Just because you get to show up once a month at each plant doesn't mean all you should do is criticize your workers and tell them things that need to be done better. A good word here and there goes a long way in boosting company morale especially since your plant workers visit other plants for different work tasks in their local area so much, that all of the workers talk about those things with each other.

    Interesting work, good working conditions, very pleasant people.

    There is one department head that needs to how to supervise his employees, he believes that he is "delegating" when in fact he is dumping additional job duties on subordinate managers.

    Former Employee - Human Resources Administrator  in  Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Human Resources Administrator in Houston, TX

    I worked at Severn Trent Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friday breakfasts, pay is decent

    Cons

    Unprofessional environment, unorganized structure, employees are overworked and spread too thin. Management is there to cover their own ass and are ready and willing to throw anyone under the bus at the drop of a hat. The Houston office is dilapidated, old-style management is apparent everywhere and new talent is not embraced - conform, get out, or get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. Embrace new talent and provide proper training for every employee.
