I have been working at Pentair full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Tyco Thermal Controls was an acquisition of Pentair in October 2012. TTC was an amazing work-place that didn't micromanage for efficiency and people were happy to come to work.

Cons

I was not among those laid off, but Pentair is *not* a loyal company to long term employees in their acquisitions. Micromanaging has begun (all employees are now required to email their boss upon logging in and out each day) and the previous environment is lost. Employees with 15-25 years of experience in our niche field were unceremoniously laid-off to hire less expensive, inexperienced foreigners who will work for a pittance and a visa. It's truly unfortunate what has become of this formerly amazing workplace. Advancement is slow or nonexistent.

    I worked at Pentair full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Was excellent when started. Common direction and goals.

    Cons

    Top Management either wants certain aspects to fail or they are oblivious. Either way direction is on a quick downward slope. Lots of higher management that don't add value while cutting the mid to low level of employees that actually do the work.
    Bottom line is all this company cares about, employees are tools to be cut whenever possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your upper management or pay attention.
