A great job for making good money and having amazing benefits.
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Auburn, NYMarch 2, 2019
Xylem is a great place to work if all you are looking for is really good pay and benefits. Thats about where the benefits stop.

The culture is broken at Xylem in Auburn. They run three shifts and each shift blames each other for everything going on. Grown men and women acting like they're in Kindergarten. No one owns up and takes responsibility for their actions. There is no teamwork between the shifts. Its sad, because there is potential for it to be a really amazing work place.

Lazy workers stay for way too long causing factories to be on overtime because not as much work gets done. They have trouble finding people and getting them to stay.

They claim safety is the most important issue, and they have to tendency to go overboard on small issues while ignoring the bigger issues.

The Union seems to only ever care about what happens with one shift and never seems to listen to anything the other shifts say.
Pros
Pay, Benefits
Cons
Culture, management, organization, favoritism

Which Xylem company are you working for?
Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaFebruary 22, 2019
Xylem has several companies, and the culture of each company is different but when working remotely you don't have any factory support. Management is in a different world, the stock world and your are alone with your goals, make magic to make it happen.

Normal every day employees just trying to make it.
Foreman (Current Employee) –  Lubbock TX , Slaton TxFebruary 15, 2019
This place is full of over achievers that are not qualified to manage themselves. It's a meaningful job with the ability to make a good quality product but is ill managed. The HR department is a joke and shows favortism to its "star" employees. There is a huge lack of communication between shifts and especially management to production employees.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Short breaks, ill managed, favortism

An unpleasant, unethical company to work for.
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Auburn, NYFebruary 12, 2019
The union protects members that it would like to protect, whilst leaving other members out to dry, fighting their own conflicts. The company lies to new hires promising them specific grades/classifications after set time periods and then fails to do so, the company fights the union for reduction of benefits and lower wages, and demands a quick pace with no rewards. The environment is not safe as you are working with steel, iron, brass, chemicals, forklifts, constant materials laying in aisle ways. The company is unethical and takes advantage of any opportunity that they can to lie to their own work force.
Pros
Health Insurance, Dental Insurance, 401K
Cons
Short Breaks, Poor Management, Poor Morale of Workers, Mandatory Overtime, Work Weekends, Dangerous Work Environment

Customer Master Administrator (Current Employee) –  Seneca Falls, NYJanuary 21, 2019
I've enjoyed working at Xylem. It was a very nice atmosphere to work in and my boss is excellent. The hardest part of the job is teaching people from another country to take my job as our jobs have been given to India.

Very intense and fair company.
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 2, 2019
My position at Xylem was very technical and gratifying. Managers left a lot to be desired. I am not sure I was ever managed with a style like I was at Xylem. The division of Xylem that I was employed in needs to evaluate their performance criteria.

Poor Benefits
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) –  Freedom, PAOctober 2, 2018
Benefits are very costly. If you are young it may be OK. The company has gotten large and the management is confusing at best. Directions can come from any direction.
