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.
Controls Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Warrendale, PA – March 25, 2018
A fair amount of autonomy is allowed however be careful of the type of manager you get. Up to 100% travel is required in this role. It can sometimes feel as if you have no support from anyone in this role. Management is virtually non existent or very aloof. You get the feeling they are waiting for you to fail.
After 16 years of service and positive career growth, Evoqua Water Tech. (AKA Siemens Water, US Filter, Arrowhead), has taken an fun and profitable work environment and layed off, fired, or retired many of the most talented people in the company. The people who are left are hanging on just to see if it will get better. the executive leaders appear to look at everything through "beer goggles". One example of this is while the company was letting 50% of the administration group go for reduction of force they have parties at the corporate headquarters for everyone with all the food and alcohol you can hold. While many current staff don't know when their positions will be cut. I loved this company and have and still want the best for them and the customers. However, the work environment has become more about profits and less about the customer and staff.
Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Waukesha, WI – March 5, 2018
Nice company to work for. Excellent place to work. Hours are long but time off is very reasonable. The work load is constant and consistent. The people are amazingly skilled and friendly. Great benefits but Management will throw you under the bus to hide they're own mistake.
Field Sales, Light Industry (Current Employee) – Roswell, GA – February 15, 2018
The company is large, but very segmented with lots of silos. The management doesn't know how to support new hires and cannot help with everyday job functions. The amount of support that has recently been cut, means you are asked to do a lot outside of your job role. Targets and sales goals are not based on actual performance. Pervasive good old boy culture with the older staff that have stuck around.

Unrealistic goals, too much turnover, no direction, no support
