    For responsible individuals who desire to work in the water and wastewater industry the company is growing and provides an excellent platform for development as well as job security. The diversity of job skills and potential to grow is remarkable.

    The company operates efficiently which means it drives costs which are passed to consumers in rate cases. Expect a lean go-getter culture.

    None.

    Pros

    I am able to work Monday - Friday with out having to work on week-ends and they never have mandatory overtime. Love the ability to do special projects and some time am able to travel to other states to visit with the customer face to face.

    Cons

    the area i work in is not fair when it comes to attendance. the supervisor comes in late and so it makes it hard to say something to others when the person that should be there on time does not. also those that work, they work harder and those that do not they let slide. really unfair in that respect. that includes promotions.

    Advice to Management

    everyone including the supervisor should have to log into the system to show what time they come in if ever. this includes the lead customer service rep and supervisor and i am sure they will be surprised at what they find.

    Pros

    The company allows great company vehicles that we are allowed to take home. The company also has a benefit package that is outstanding including med, dental, and vision. There is a program for buying company stocks at whatever rate you would like. The company also give good dividends.

    Cons

    The problem with aqua is if you want extra money than you need an extra job. The goal of aqua is for everything to work the way it should and when it does you only receive 40 hours a week. It is their goal to keep work at a minimum. Another issue is in the smaller divisions job positons do not change frequently so if you want to advance you need to move and change divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Make things easier for operators not for the company checkbook
