    Pros

    Fast paced environment with lots of work. The people, for the most part. New plant manager is nicer/more reasonable than the previous one (I have witnessed the previous guy standing outside office restrooms watching the clock to see how long people take to poop) I've seen a few cameras go away (less Big Brother going on?).

    Cons

    This goes for the Stafford Valves and Controls location: Low pay for the high amount of work when compared to industry standards. Low opportunity for internal advancement. Low morale amongst long-timers and hourly workers. Prepare to be tossed into the deep end and subject to unrealistic and/or unexplained expectations, see the lack of living up to those standards reflected in your abysmal performance reviews, work under constant threat of your job being axed, and get straight up run out of there. Micromanagement and manipulation. You are just a number to them. Prepare to be treated like one. You'll get pumped up by and indoctrinated into their Pentair values but in the end you'll still get worked bone-dry.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people, but that should go without saying.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. This is all they have, coming from someone who's other jobs have never had benefits.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, some supervisors here dont even have degrees, it's a place on who you know basis, new people teach new people, the procedures to build here are never followed, the safety aspect of our company is a joke, it's more on "oh yea we did this and this" people get injured so much now, it's a joke. Management never talks to each other, one tells you one thing and another tells you another, no one takes responsibility, if someone gets fired or leaves, they push the extra work on other employees. There hasn't been a new product in our line up in years, they made it a lean manufacturer and no one knows what there doing, people who work here are stuck here, there to old to leave or know they can't find another job. Management tells us everyday, "fine leave, no one else is hiring, scaring some people." they brought supervisors in who are yes men, the plant manager thinks ecerything is perfect and he's to bust to come check this place out. SAP (our new operating system) has slowed us down dramatically, we used to do 10x much work without it, but some idiot implanted that system, were spending billions on a new building for our warehouse. No one gets paid here, some people have been here 10 years and new hires are already making more than them. One guy gets paid $11 to paint, his average world wide is $16, he's been here 6 years I've heard. They don't listen to employees, there cheap on everything, no new tools, no new system processes, they let black belts make the decisions for your area in which they never worked in. Place is screwed up, no one takes an interest in there job, they just do the minimal and go home. Last note, the last few raises I've had, have been either nothing or under 10 cents, this is not a lie. Come and talk to the employees in stafford and find out for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    None can be given, if there just like the ones here, they already know what's going on but there going to avoid it like the plague and just let it keep on rolling how it has been.
