    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Waters full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment for the most part. If you are a high performer, you will be recognized, and allowed to work on projects that most interest you. Good culture and general positive attitude.

    Cons

    Pay is mediocre even with high performance. Very corporate structure (upward mobility is based on years experience and "politics"). Systems & processes are very outdated and there is a resistance to change with an aging workforce. Lack of "new-age" benefits like unlimited PTO, flexible hours, and working from home.

    Waters is commitment to its Customers and Employees in measurable and action oriented ways. There is a lot of opportunity to innovate and champion change.
