    I worked at Xylem full-time

    Pros

    Great job. Hard work and contractors can be challenging but it is worth the time spent cultivating relationships.

    Cons

    Working with sewage is not for the faint of heart. You can get involved with some heavy labor if you get a big project and help is not readily available. Customers will respect you for seeing you on the sight so it does have some positives.

    Advice to Management

    Management tries to work with you but should remember that it is challenging being out there alone and should be more available for support.

    I have been working at Xylem full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kind and respectful employees and great office atmosphere. Management has respect for work-life balance. Very good pay for the area.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance. Inexperienced candidates will be chosen for management roles over internal employees with several years experience.

    Constant change in processes on multiple software packages; redundancy.

    Cons

    But one needs to know where to look and who to ask for help

    Advice to Management

    Improved training for managers (new and old) on how to help employees grow. This was launched last year and it will be interesting to see once it makes it way down to the lower levels

    I have been working at Xylem full-time

    Pros

    Great corporate mission: Responsibly manage the world's water. Who can't get behind that? This attracts top talent from around the world. I get to work with a lot of really smart, motivated people. Also, we work hard, but there is an expectation of work/life balance, and leadership generally walks the talk.

    Cons

    Not many. However, I will say that Xylem started off very large ($4B) and fragmented, as it was put together through a lot of separate companies, many of whom were competitors with one another, formerly. As Xylem has matured, it is putting organization-wide policies and tools in place, and is centralizing many of its shared services. This can cause a little bit of chaos in the immediate, but it's the right thing to do, long-run.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on growth.

    Sensus acquisition and Analytics focus makes Xylem well positioned for being a leader in smart water infrastructure. Strong CEO.
