    I have been working at American Water full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Union Plant Operator. Strong union presence. Good working relationship with management. Good pay, benefits are ok, 401k is good as well.

    Cons

    Communication is a issue. A lot of "I dont knows" and empty knowledge base in general. Very little to no "field experts" to fall back on.

    Advice to Management

    The left had does not know what the right is doing. Better communication from all parties involved would go a long way. Like a football team, everyone has to be on the same page.

    Education and field expertise should be a top priority.
