Initially this started out as a great company to work for, however after several changes to the director of operations (4 in six years) and other upper management positions Xylem has become one of the worst places to work in my opinion. No Job security, constant layoffs, no integrity with regional managers and above. The management style is harassing, threatening, and has no focus. It is clear they do not know what they are doing and have no long term goals for sustaining a customer base. They push out people that are knowledgeable and successful and promote/maintain people they like. They micro manage and make personnel accountable for their bad decision yet upper management takes credit for every success and rarely gives credit to deserving staff. They have laid off a large portion of their work force, struggle to support their customer base, and the workload is unsustainable for everyone from branch managers to inside sales and service. They have lost their focus on the customer and are more concerned with internal image.
High work load, upper management harrasment, micromanaging, no job security
