A company with tremendous potential, but only average performance due to bad management and politics

Current Employee - Senior Manager

I have been working at Pentair full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Mostly nice colleagues, a lot of freedom to pursue own ideas, great team work, fair compensation, working in a growing sector (water)

Cons

Silo thinking, too much politics, no recognition of high or low performance, knowing the right people or being in the right network most relevant, NO business strategy, only short term performance orientation, top management without any clue about the business/industry

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Act mor as entrepreneurs than investment bankers, enable lower management , stop celebrating Randy more than your customers

    Current Employee - Intern/Trainee in Goa Velha (India)

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

    Pros

    There are very few. Pentair Water India is a subsidiary plant of the Pentair Ltd. The main company has a respectable brand name, however the Goa operations do not live up to it.

    Cons

    Poor working conditions, especially for engineering graduates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to focus on the people, on training and work conditions.
