Summary
Assembler/Production (Current Employee) –  DuBois, PASeptember 16, 2018
Quite possibly the easiest, best paying work/wage in this town. The turnover is insanely high, where the work isn't difficult at all. Coworkers are nice.
Pros
Easy simple work. Leadership is approachable
Cons
15 minute lunch, 2 10 minute breaks. Last minute mandatory overtime notice.

Poorly structured
Customer Service/Order Entry (Former Employee) –  Morton Grove, ILSeptember 5, 2018
Xylem is poorly structured, management is too busy to assist with proper training and day to day running of the company. They allow sales rep to be disrespectful and rude to customer service reps. Management is catty and cut throat.

Godwin just might kill you
Sales (Former Employee) –  BridgeportSeptember 4, 2018
I can't speak for the work culture at the other business units of Xylem. Godwin is a bombastic mess, with probably the worst work-life balance of any company I've ever encountered.

Most of the employees fully expect to work between 50-65 hours a week. 24/7 contact is expected. The culture very time consuming and many of the processes outdated.
Pros
Decent wage, decent room for growth
Cons
You will kill yourself

the place is something else
Production Assembler (Former Employee) –  Auburn, NYAugust 29, 2018
While my time at Xylem it seemed like the place was kindergarten all over again. People there seemed to rat out other union members just because they didn't like them. One investigation in their terms leads you having to retake a drug test. Why? the place is a complete job and the union is as well
Pros
Family days
Cons
poor management all around

A good stepping stone
Database Administrator (Former Employee) –  New York StateJuly 24, 2018
Not bad, not your dream job. Most middle managers are women, most technical workers are men, so there's that dynamic. Some divisions have constant reorgs and turnover, but most are stable.
Pros
Training sessions and job security
Cons
IT people are viewed as janitors

high pace job
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAJuly 23, 2018
working at xylem was a learning experience, I job is not that hard but what creates a problem I believe is the organization of the warehouse and their inventory. most of the time we did not have all the parts available to complete building the orders, and when we got the parts management would rush us to build the costumers orders. most of the employees from the dept. did not like the manager because the way he manage the warehouse.
Pros
1 hour lunch
Cons
no room for advancement, the pay rate is low

Branch Manger (Current Employee) –  Edison, NJJuly 17, 2018
Good place to work, stable company. I've been here over 9 years. At times, this job is fast paced and other times it's stagnant. The rental industry is tough in any field.

No collaboration, no energy, everyone holed up in office or cubicle
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Brown Deer, WIJuly 2, 2018
When you enter the building you are immediately struck by the total silence. Most people sit in their offices with doors closed or in their cubicles and don't engage or speak with each other throughout the day. In fact, when there is an all-staff meeting, some people will sit in their office or cubicle and call in to the meeting rather than join in person in a conference room. The particular brand/division I worked at had 37% employee turnover in 2017. And while 2018 is seeing less turnover, there still is the underlying problem of people not collaborating nor engaging with each other.
It was a very depressed, unstimulating and tired environment sapped of vitality.

My job used to be a very good job.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSITANT (Current Employee) –  Bridgeport, NJMay 30, 2018
Xylem used to be a good job. It has turned into a major corporation with way too many upper management level employees. My major concern is how bad the benefits are becoming in January 2019. They won't even be worth having. People go to work to receive a paycheck and benefits. At that point, there will be no point in paying out of every paycheck to receive horrible quality benefits with a deductible so high that they will never kick in.
Pros
401K plan
Cons
Upcoming benefits will be horrible; more work with no compensation.
