    Pros

    Overall good place to work good pay great benefits. Can be very calm environment to be such a large manufacturing company

    Cons

    Segregated discipline for employees. Some employees are treated as favorites and allowed to lay up while others are treated like rented Millie’s on the last day of planting season

    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.

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You are given a company vehicle, decent base pay, solid benefits, and an expense report.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no possibility for advancement; promotions can only be made through the sudden death of a manager or immediate resignation.
