on a typical day of work. i would walk in with a smile on my face and tell everyone I see good moring! As i start getting my work area checklist done and begin to start my producer that I will be working on making sure my PPE is wore at all time! so i know my coworker will be safe and I'm safe to work around them! i learn everything everyday because keep my ears open and eyes to communcate with my co workers!

No job security even for talented, hard working and committed employees
Middle management (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 24, 2018
As a former employee whose position was eliminated, it's probably tempting for you to dismiss this review but....Evoqua pays you well but you are a hired mercenary not a valued asset. Evoqua will hire people with specific skills for a specific task and then your position will be eliminated. They will then move on to hiring another person with a different skill set for the next management whim. Employee committment to the company and the quality of task completion are irrelevant factors in maintaining a job here. Do not leave a long term position for a job at Evoqua but if you are starving to death and need a job - they will pay you as long as it lasts.
Worker bee (Former Employee) – South Windsor, CT – September 27, 2018
Don't believe the promises. Safety is a priority until you get hurt then its employees fault. Like being on call, great. Upper management from CEO and just below are oblivious to day to day work. Too many chiefs not enough indians. Evoqua could and should have been able to take over the world market in water purification. Due to poor management, outdated equipment and poor work practices have not. Middle management is good. Unfortunately because they fear for there jobs due to the numbers game, they cant help worker bees much. Not much room for advancement due to hiring outside, rather than premoting from within. Giving too many job responsibilities to hard workers and allowing lazy workers to continue to do nothing. If you need a job with good benefits, go for it. But be ready to sacrifice your personal life and health.
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Bartow, FL – September 8, 2018
12 hour days for FST’s. If you are new to the industry it is a lot to learn right away but rewarding when you pick it all up. Some days are easy and don’t have much to do. Other days are very hard with a full day of hard work. Evoqua is building a good culture that seems to be getting better daily.
Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 24, 2018
People are stay in their own crowd, extremely busy, then there are others who sit on their cell phone all day and are the favorites. People quit the same position because of 1 manager, nothing done to the 1 manager. Try to prove yourself, no one takes notice. Very frustrating environment to work in. Ever since they went public it has been downhill.
IT Consultant (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 21, 2018
In IT, many people are hired in to do one job, but end up doing another. Most of IT is being outsourced to India. Many IT people have quit or been let go. Not a good learning environment, but basically just testing the work done off shore. Very tedious and stressful. No hands on experience, just checking other's work.
Technician ll (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 26, 2018
The company ignores the lack of good leadership at this facility. The Good Ol' Boys really get away with anything they want. They have been covering for each other for over two decades. If you don't kiss up. They will make you look bad. They continue to promote the people they like. Not the people with the job skills necessary. This is a very toxic place to work. If you don't believe my review go work at the Colorado Springs Location for one day. There is some very deep secrets at this facility. They say overtime is mandatory most of the year. They imply if you don't participate in OT it could lead to a write up. If this place got better unbiased leadership the profits would sky rocket.

Lack of training, safety, materials, tools, good resources
The organization provides a fantastic product and the individuals in the company do care about the customer experience. However, there is not a clear cut path to operational excellence set for by the management team.

Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 8, 2018
Managers spending too much time in meetings and behind closed doors. Instead of doing reports and pushing paper they should be finding out what is really happening from their sales force and people in the field. This would better serve the customer and ultimately the company. This would truly meet their mission statement.
Contract Renewal Specialist (Former Employee) – Metairie, LA – April 30, 2018
There is a serious lack of communication within the company, there are more exceptions to the rules than rules so everyday was changeling. There is a lack of support from management and that was a serious downfall.
