Porous Media Reviews
Pros – Love the freedom to improve the manufacturing process. I don't think they laid any off at all. People just found positions somewhere else and moved on. There are some people who worked there forever. Most of my co-workers are very smart and business oriented
Cons – Wasn't there long enough to see how the annual raises turn out. Initial salary could be a bit higher, but I didn't know how to negotiate when I was out of college, so it was my fault.
Advice to Senior Management – None
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Great technology and a lot of opportunities to make improvements. The company takes safety, quality, and lean manufacturing seriously. Most of the people are really nice and willing to try new things. Non-union environment.
Cons – Communication regarding changes and performance not so good. People expected to work a lot of overtime. Goals are sometimes unclear.
Advice to Senior Management – Provide better mentoring to people and improve communication. Try and be more respectful to the workers.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Free lunch and good team atmosphere
Cons – Lack of information and communication from the management
Advice to Senior Management – Be more pragmatic
Pros – Great small-company atmosphere in the beginning
Co-workers who are dedicated and passionate
Freedom to explore personal interests
Recongnition of accomplishment and contribution through regular compensation reviews
Cons – Pentair takeover has created a stifling big-company environment
Many long-term employees are seeking other opportunities because of existing or impending changes
It it my opinion that PM was purchased by Pentair for their technology rather than their manufacturing/engineering capabilities and resources
Advice to Senior Management – Push to return to what made the company great, if there are any of you left. PM still has tremendous potential, but it will be difficult to realize in a bureaucratic corporate environment.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
