Pros

Great benefits but costs have increased this year so it's gotten expensive

Cons

Most major decisions require several approvals and can take months implement. I've seen a lot of turnover in the last couple of years and the process for replacing these roles takes so long.

    I worked at Xylem full-time

    Pros

    Excellent rep sales organization. Good product portfolio and brand recognition. Global opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Rep sales organization has a stronger influence on the company than the management team. Lack of accountability in the work culture. Poor global vision. Management does not seem to have a good grip on how things get done and how the organization should be structured to do work.

    Advice to Management

    If you are not going to drive the organization, then hire good folks and get out of the way. Don't bite off more than you can chew. Understand your organizational limitations, work within its capability, and then focus on improving that capability

    I have been working at Xylem full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive for certain positions. The people are also great to work with and committed to growing the business.

    Cons

    Top management is aloof, and somewhat indifferent to the needs of mid management. The company also tends to be more focused on quarterly results than long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to mid-management. Invest more in resources that are essential for long-term growth, such as people and IT. The interim CEO needs to be keenly aware of this.
