A Joke Of A Company

I worked at Pentair

Pros

None, I do not believe there are any Pros.

Cons

Beware of this company. They will tell you that you are great to your face and behind your back they will backstab you and sell you out to save their own job. How can you treat your employees that way. It is no wonder no one trusts in this company. The GM will do and say anything to save his own behind. Eventually, things will catch up and people will realize what a joke this division is. I would not recommend this company to anyone. If you want to die or a heart attack and have no family time this is the company for you. I can't see this division staying around to long unless there are BIG changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire yourselves and start over.

    Pros

    Smart people
    Good products
    Ability to drive change and make improvements
    Interesting project work
    Performance driven culture
    Good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Minimal recognition given
    Company seemed to be going through an identity crisis: Are we a (decentralized) holding company or a (centralized) operating company?
    Lots of process inefficiencies and waste
    Leadership could be short-sighted at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think bigger picture. Invest in long-term solutions that yield strong ROI over time, rather than favoring short-term band-aid fixes that have a more immediate impact on bottom line, but aren't fixing the root cause.

    Pros

    Small group, work loads come in waves. Get a chance to mingle and work with the engineers.

    Cons

    Since the recession, they have been doing away with many benefits, but I expect them to bring them back.
