I worked at Mueller Water Products full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The work life balance depending on the department you work in is fair. The segment headquarters (i.e., Mueller, Anvil, and US Pipe) are filled with intelligent individuals that know how to get things done. Compensation is way way above average for a company of this size.

Cons

However, the same cannot be said for the corporate management team in Atlanta. Based on my experience, the less intelligent you are the higher you can rise through the ranks. Promotions are purely based on politics. If you dare acknowledge that the emperor has no clothes, you will be shown the door. The CEO is not very dynamic, and they have been running the company without a real CFO for at least six years, which was exposed by MWP receiving two consecutive material weaknesses over its financial reporting controls. This place is a mess.

Advice to Management

Hire a real CEO and CFO. Reward honesty and integrity, and stop sweeping problems under the rug.
