    Pros

    Excellent 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.

    Cons

    Like 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.

    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.

    Pros

    good pay and better benefits, direct dposit with 24/7 computer access to payroll and benefits as well as employee discounts. well organized, worker safety policys followed, machines well maintained, and very nice tooling. Most gages and measuring instruments provided, full service tool crib. Steel Workers union. Very particular on hiring and do a good job of briniging in quality workers.

    Cons

    no AC in shop, so it gets hot in summer. Management changes gears often and sometimes that hurts production, but overall a good place to work.

    Pros

    This company is continually improving and expanding as it works to stay competitive in a growing market. I have had a very positive experience here.

    Cons

    This job can require longer work hours, and that can definitely be a negative for some. Lower paid jobs especially have less flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Pentair does a good job of getting you work immediately.
    This is a lean company and has a lot of room for growth and opportunity.
    There is an open door policy and everyone is always so inclusive.
    Joining Pentair is like joining a family of people who have the same goal in mind.

    Cons

    There was a lack of training. It was almost as if they threw you into the pool and told you to swim before actually teaching you how to swim. There was not much preparation for a new employee. It took almost a week to get my laptop and even longer to get my phone and business cards.
