Pros

They got 2-1 retirement. Layed back most part friendly. Great benifits free clinic and gym. You can build your time off. Lots of holidays. Supervisors tend to work with you. You feel good when you help the city not run out of water.

Cons

Very low pay. 12-18hr in the low end jobs such as I&E tech or maintiance or plant operator.. Management has tends to support themselfs. Passed up twice for supervisor. Been there 5 yr. My new supervisors got fired for not knowing job. But if you get in good with the supervisors they will promote you. They recently didnt promote a 25 yr employee and chose to hire a employee that only been there 6 months. He later left 2 yr later. Most all the Veterns were basically force to retired due to no promotion. Management doesnt acknowledge your work. Promised training when started never sent or given any training. Some jobs perform are very dangerous. Lack of ppe.

Advice to Management

Invest in the people that been there longer. Provide better training. Reduce micromanagment. Listen to your employees. Reduce hostile work enviroment. Better pay. Hire more people . Treat employees like there human.
