    Pros

    They offer a wide range of software and hardware projects from embedded systems to wireless communications.

    Cons

    One of the senior engineers is difficult to get along with. It'll make you want to quit your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach staff to stop being negative towards others.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In my first year, I was pleased to find Pentair to be a very helpful and collaborative culture. Never have I heard the phrase "that's not my job/problem." I feel good working for a company that not only promotes "Win Right" values, but "walks the talk."

    Cons

    Like any large corporation, process and decisions can be slow. The company is very diversified, so it can take a while to fully grasp the business and navigate channels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote the Win Right values and help foster greater collaboration across businesses.

    I have been working at Pentair as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, comfortable environment. I have enjoyed working at Pentair. There is a real positive, upbeat, team atmosphere. The aquatics life-support industry is fascinating.

    Cons

    I was hired under temporary contract to work on the catalog and enjoyed my time here thoroughly. I just wish they could hire me permanently!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe hiring two people, part time, to share the designer/photographer position would be a good idea.
