    I have been working at Waters full-time (Less than a year)


    I've been here about 8 months, and I love it! Everyone was very welcoming right from the beginning. The company is structured, but the individual departments are flexible (at least the MarComm dept is). The work-life balance is fantastic and I'm never made to feel guilty if I need to take time off. Everyone is very knowledgable and is eager to share that knowledge. They also make it a point to be sure you're work load is not overwhelming you, which is great. Overall I've had an awesome experience so far!


    I don't really have any cons yet!

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Waters.


    Typical phone screening and full day interview. Offer stage immediately following the interviews. This is a typical process that ensure a good fit. This process is very typical from other employees I spoke with and it works very well.
