    Do not think you have potential growth. It's not happening no time soon. No matter how many times you put in for an internal position you will be over looked!

    Give better pay and bonus to lower level employees.

    Pros

    Very good within the water industry. Pay and benefits are average. New contracts and future growth should open up new oppurtunities.

    Cons

    Culture is improving but many still have out dated management views.

    Pros

    Good Management and Staff Up to date technology Free coffee, tea and water (yes, this is a perk as some companies don't offer this) Nice time off compensation

    Some of the more tenured staff not as positive. Have to motivate some employees to stay focused and boost the mentality.

    Pros

    Still provides plenty of holidays that had been negotiated many years ago.

    Cons

    This company was purchased in 2000 by a foreign multinational and has since been deteriorating. In recent years there have been many layoffs with many employees forced to re-apply for their current jobs. Everyone clearly recognizes what has been the pattern: layoff or force to resign the older, experienced and higher paid employees nearing retirement and replace them with low paid and temporary help. Employee morale is awful. With the severe level of layoffs and forced "resignations" the workload has shifted onto the shoulders of those remaining. Long hours of unpaid overtime including working on weekends and holidays has contributed to the very low morale in the NJ Headquarters. Perks which had been provided for many decades and made the company an enjoyable to place to work have been systematically rescinded.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees as just another tool to be used up and discarded and try rebuilding trust and loyalty and you will be surprised how much more productivity you can achieve.
