    Pros

    It's a product that everyone needs

    Cons

    They are always looking to fire their people instead of developing them. Gestapo mentality. Their management just flat out lies to people. The site I was at had a whole new cycle of people in just two years. HR is really poor and thrives on screwing people. Unsafe working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ivory tower in Tennessee and the do nothing inhabitants if you really want to save money. Hopefully the new CEO will clean house. I thought they were on the right path with good leadership hires but they have all found out their number and left.

    I have been working at Mueller Water Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company overall makes a lot of money without having to work hard for it. The profit margins are substantial enough offset and hide the poor operations. Management is compensated well and the company offers solid benefits.

    Cons

    Very poor daily operations. The inability to adequately schedule and plan production results in absurd amounts of overtime for production employees and supervisors. A complete disregard for improving current processes while focusing resources on new product lines or arbitrary changes which are often poorly executed. Poor performance at the management level is frequently overlooked and sometimes rewarded based on false merit.
