    Pros

    This company is continually improving and expanding as it works to stay competitive in a growing market. I have had a very positive experience here.

    Cons

    This job can require longer work hours, and that can definitely be a negative for some. Lower paid jobs especially have less flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.

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

    Pros

    Pentair does a good job of getting you work immediately.
    This is a lean company and has a lot of room for growth and opportunity.
    There is an open door policy and everyone is always so inclusive.
    Joining Pentair is like joining a family of people who have the same goal in mind.

    Cons

    There was a lack of training. It was almost as if they threw you into the pool and told you to swim before actually teaching you how to swim. There was not much preparation for a new employee. It took almost a week to get my laptop and even longer to get my phone and business cards.

    I worked at Pentair

    Pros

    Pentair really seemed to care about growth for the benefits of its employees and stockholders, but had a good way of making its associates feel valued even though they were in the midst of evolving into a large corporation during the time I was there.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was a challenge, there seemed to be an unwritten rule about hours worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage movement internally instead of hiring outside so often.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Well run, good systems, strong on lean management and innovation, good teams, profitable company. Well diversified both from a business and geographic perspective. Strong product management company also. In high growth markets as well such as water.

    Cons

    Sometimes too bureaucratic - too much control in corporate office. They are a strong manufacturing company - but not all of their GBUs are in the manufacturing business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't have so much control in corporate office - allow field offices and regions to be more autonomous to make decisions quicker

    I worked at Pentair as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pentair has a number of processes that provide a good learning experience for any new engineer to the game. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a good job in manufacturing. All the people, from the factory operators all the way up to management, are nice approachable people, who are willing to help you and production in any way they can.

    Cons

    The downside to working in a plant that is definitely process advanced is that you will work at other places and realize how good you had it at Pentair. On the other side, it provides a good reference from systems and processes to implement anywhere you work forthcoming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to involve all personnel in improvement projects.
