    Pros

    Some very good people working there. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Very Engineering centric, extremely high turnover especially of Value Stream Managers and very poor Safety controls in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a manager in place that drives Operations, Sales and Engineering... not just listen to Engineering.

    I worked at Pentair full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management has changed again. Maybe these people are more professional and are waking up to how to run a large company like this one. Communication is opening up on what the company is doing as a whole. That hasn't filtered down to local management yet. Old habits are hard to break.

    Cons

    There is no chance for advancement there. Not one person was promoted in the four years I worked there. People are considered expendable. Benefits are not good. The location I where I was working was very cheap. Even let the receptionist go to save money. Even though we met or exceeded booking projections consistently. Processes in my department were not well documented. Which leads to too much tribal knowledge and confusion for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing the department name every year or so. Employees don't even know how to answer the phone. Update your website/websites. There are several. And all of them are difficult to navigate. How do you expect your customers to find out what location to contact for the product they need if the employees find it hard to do? Promote people internally instead of firing existing people and hiring new ones to replace them.
