I have been working at Pentair full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

A legacy of good people being reduced rapidly. Older employees try to give knowledge transfer

Cons

Once every product was through the QC. One in a thousand now. Internal market and product knowledge is sliding. Upper management going for image not reality. With a first to market first to fail (regularly), Luckily a lot of legacy people (retiring or going to other companies now) are still in place but are being replaced with short term youth who see the issues and also are leaving once a good CV is in place

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The CEO needs to reevaluate the management below. Or, if that does not work then the board need to reevaluate the CEO. The buck stops here.
Do not blame the union or employees. Which is the current process

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

    Pros

    Lots of different projects, experienced management, great intern program making sure you are comfortable and asking about your experience. Not to mention free lunches quite often and got paid to go to a Twins game

    Cons

    Beginning was a little slow, not many projects when first starting, some assemblers on the floor don't treat the young interns with much respect
