Pros

The company generally pays better than most local employers. They have a swimming pool. Their office building is very upscale, with fountains inside, some of which have fish. Executives get big offices and are treated like royalty, with bonuses and stock options.

Cons

The company relies heavily on nepotism. Family members and friends of the executives are hired regularly and placed in poitions without regard to skills, education or qualifications. The majority of the executives have no understanding of how to manage and deal with people. The human resources department openly operates with bias and manages through intimidation and manipulation. Many years ago the company was thought to be a great place to work. Former employees now seem to generally agree that the firm lost its way. Rank and file employees are generally treated like dirt unless they are family members.

    I worked at Artesian Resources (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very good, pay is on par and fair. Workout room and swimming pool to be used by employees and their families

    Cons

    Nepotism runs rampant. Friends and Family are brought in and are unqualified to do the jobs. Turn around is very high in a lot of departments

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be respected and treated equal, instead of by the double standard that is the norm. Sr. management needs to listen to everyone not just their friends from their inner circle.
