    Excellent place to work

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsExcellent policies to keep the employees satisfied and motivated. Gives employee a chance to have a diverse exposure under the same roof. Excellent company for a good career start.

    ConsLike any large company, process and decisions can be slow but the end result is is worth your patience. Company needs to work more on talent management in order to keep the employees motivated.

    Positive experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsIn 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."

    ConsLike 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 Senior ManagementContinue to promote the Win Right values and help foster greater collaboration across businesses.

    A positive, upbeat place to work.

    Graphic Designer (Current Employee)
    Apopka, FL

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

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

    never a dull moment...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWell run, good systems, strong on lean management and innovation, good teams, profitable company. Well diversified both from a business and geographic perspective. Strong product management company also. In high growth markets as well such as water.

    ConsSometimes too bureaucratic - too much control in corporate office. They are a strong manufacturing company - but not all of their GBUs are in the manufacturing business.

    Advice to Senior Managementdon't have so much control in corporate office - allow field offices and regions to be more autonomous to make decisions quicker

    Friendly working environment.

    Design Manager (Current Employee)
    Delavan, WI

    ProsI worked in the pump group in Wisconsin for 13 years in that time the pros I have seen are:
    friendly working environment.
    knowledgeable engineers
    realistic deadlines
    good management team

    Consdon't recognize good employees
    offshore sourcing so quality suffers
    frequently they let the wrong people go in the past
    no project management
    need to re-examine role of India engineering group

    Advice to Senior Managementyour strongest assets are your people, reward them for a job well done a 3% raise a year does not cut it. you are close enough to Milwaukee you must pay Milwaukee wages to find and keep employees

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
