Pros – In my first year, I was pleased to find Pentair to be a very helpful and collaborative culture. Never have I heard the phrase "that's not my job/problem." I feel good working for a company that not only promotes "Win Right" values, but "walks the talk."
Cons – Like any large corporation, process and decisions can be slow. The company is very diversified, so it can take a while to fully grasp the business and navigate channels.
Advice to Senior Management – Continue to promote the Win Right values and help foster greater collaboration across businesses.

Pros – Great global reach so many opportunities to travel internationally and learn the business in different countries. The people overall are very experienced and excel at their jobs.
Cons – It is obvious management at the upper level of finance plays favorites - decisions about hiring/firing/retention seem more based on getting on upper finance's "good side" rather than true employee performance. As a result, there is a lack of trust in upper management's retention and personnel development decisions, especially if you have a direct or dotted-line reporting to the CFO. This has become increasingly obvious now that preparations for the merger are advancing.
Advice to Senior Management – Do a better job retaining talent, especially during the merger process. Make sure retention and development of talent is fair, not based on a single individual's opinions/views.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pros – Smart people
Ability to drive change and make improvements
Interesting project work
Performance driven culture
Good pay and benefits
Cons – Minimal recognition given
Company seemed to be going through an identity crisis: Are we a (decentralized) holding company or a (centralized) operating company?
Lots of process inefficiencies and waste
Leadership could be short-sighted at times.
Advice to Senior Management – Think bigger picture. Invest in long-term solutions that yield strong ROI over time, rather than favoring short-term band-aid fixes that have a more immediate impact on bottom line, but aren't fixing the root cause.

Pros – documentation to capture data or other information
Cons – very inefficient, tools that used corporate-wide are designed by people who don't have to use it daily
