I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Was excellent when started. Common direction and goals.

Cons

Top Management either wants certain aspects to fail or they are oblivious. Either way direction is on a quick downward slope. Lots of higher management that don't add value while cutting the mid to low level of employees that actually do the work.
Bottom line is all this company cares about, employees are tools to be cut whenever possible.

Advice to Management

Fire your upper management or pay attention.

    I worked at Pentair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was OK, but workload excessive

    Cons

    "Old boy's club" where, if you are not buddies with people there for decades, you will be used and spit out. Watch out for back stabbers and an HR dept that works to help their friends and relatives get jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Get the senior HR doing some work; get junior HR out of major decision making.
