I have been working at Pentair

Pros

Good pay and benefits. Many locations and opportunities for advancement. Good corporate support from a manufacturing perspective. Solid financial positions.

Cons

No issues that you would not experience anywhere else. Market planning is weak and forecasting production volumes can be a challenge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Focus on profit margins and market forecast. Stabalize a culture and environment that does not change with leadership.

    I worked at Pentair

    Pros

    The benefits package is very competitve. My particular manager gave me great latitude in order to achieve my goals. By and large, most personnel were friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    HR and Benefits administration are horrendous. Due to the longevity of some employees, there is no sense of urgency within the organization. Integration of the Pentair group and GE group has created a dysfunctional mess! Upper management carries the arrogance of GE without the competence of GE. I cannot recommend Pentair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The continual "re-sizing" of the sales divisions is not only confusing for employees but has created great uncertainty with the clients.

    Eine Firma mit unheimlich viel Potenzial aber nur durchschnittlicher Performanz durch schlechtes Management und Machtkämpfe A company with tremendous potential, but only average performance due to bad management and politics

    Pros

    Überwiegend nette Kollegen, viel Freiraum für eigene Ideen, tolle Teamarbeit, faire Bezahlung, Arbeit in Wachstumssektor (Wasser)

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

    Cons

    Silo-Denken, zu viele Machtkämpfe, keine Anerkennung von mehr oder weniger Leistung; die richtigen Leute zu kennen oder zum richtigen Netzwerk zu gehören, ist das Wichtigste; KEINE Geschäftsstrategie, alles nur an kurzfristigem Erfolg ausgerichtet, Top-Management hat keine Ahnung von Unternehmen und Branche

    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

    Verhaltet euch mehr wie Unternehmer als wie Investment-Banker, gebt der unteren Leitungsebene mehr Freiraum, hört auf, Randy mehr als eure Kunden zu feiern

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