    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which had been provided for many decades and made the company an enjoyable to place to work have been systematically rescinded.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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at United Water (New Jersey) as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    All of my coworkers were helpful and had a genuine desire to see you be successful. The company also participated in community service with their employees, which was admirable.

    Cons

    The job itself was not challenging and was not very interesting which resulted in days moving very slow. But some people would see not challenging as a good thing. I prefer a faster pace environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my time there I saw/interacted with no more than two of them.

    Stop micromanaging and do some work. Set examples of what and how to do.
