I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Relatively stable company in most areas. Good benefits. Acquisitions can provide some opportunity.

Cons

Cost cutting may result in more facility closures like the one I worked for and there is limited movement among divisions so upward movement was uncommon while I was there.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    Great global reach so many opportunities to travel internationally and learn the business in different countries. The people overall are very experienced and excel at their jobs.

    Cons

    It is obvious management at the upper level of finance plays favorites - decisions about hiring/firing/retention seem more based on getting on upper finance's "good side" rather than true employee performance. As a result, there is a lack of trust in upper management's retention and personnel development decisions, especially if you have a direct or dotted-line reporting to the CFO. This has become increasingly obvious now that preparations for the merger are advancing.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job retaining talent, especially during the merger process. Make sure retention and development of talent is fair, not based on a single individual's opinions/views.

    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
