Pros

Good brand (at least in the past)
Great for people in the 20's

Cons

New leadership is damaging the customer loyalty
Very poor integration with acquired brands
What the leader says is different what comes out as a decision
Performance review is based on if you are buddy with your boss
Pentair is losing the edge and brand of the acquired companies

Advice to Management

Care about your employees

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Still the leader in Water Treatment manufacturing and the industry is growing globally though down in Residential filtration. Work environment is generally flexible.

    Cons

    The mismanage the business at a higher level making decisions that cost the company great losses and the employees a lot of extra work, stress and embarrassment in front of customers when product quality and delivery are degraded. Each year of the past 4 they let go several employees to cut costs and when they don't re-hire those people left are piled with more work and no additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making decisions to move products off-shore before you are prepared with enough stock of product. Stick to schedules for delivery and be honest and realistic with the OEM customers that suffer due to Pentair's incompetence.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Interesting products, and brands are well known. The locations are spread out across the region and offer lateral movement within the organization.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of product development to production. Need for FMEA process to avoid rush to production, which only creates waste.

    Advice to Management

    You need to stop letting customers run your business. Of course the customer is king, but transparency should not mean the customer taking over.
