I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 5 years)
Energetic People, Top Management Involvement with Plants, Pay and benefits are good (if you have leverage), Employee Stock Purchase program with 50% matching, and 50% of 3.5% 401k matching, 1.5% "retirement" 401K annual deposit, good bonuses (10%+), Brookfield plant still does monthly all employee meetings, team plays together.
Frequent Corporate Reorgs, Innovation flops, need to understand and expand global market presence, company split in half in 2017 (Small fortune 500 now), China competition eroding CM margins.
Advice to Management
Know your global market, talk to your employees and know what drives them, value employees who care to make the company better, consistency is needed at the plant level. Quality needs to be taken seriously (not lip service and bleeding warranty expense). Values look great on paper, make sure you reward the right behaviors and compensate people according to results as well as values (vs one or the other).
I applied online. I interviewed at Pentair in June 2017.
36 emails, half dozen phone calls, 4 in person interviews. One person cancelled and was rescheduled who did not call me, I had to track the person down.
