I worked at Pentair as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Pentair has a number of processes that provide a good learning experience for any new engineer to the game. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a good job in manufacturing. All the people, from the factory operators all the way up to management, are nice approachable people, who are willing to help you and production in any way they can.

Cons

The downside to working in a plant that is definitely process advanced is that you will work at other places and realize how good you had it at Pentair. On the other side, it provides a good reference from systems and processes to implement anywhere you work forthcoming.

Advice to Management

Continue to involve all personnel in improvement projects.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pentair full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    After meging from Tyco retained job function.

    Cons

    Don't care for employees or expertise. Hostile enviroment. low class managers. Manage by Intimidation and Threats of closing the plant.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating people like objects and treat them with respect.
    Monitoring bathroom visit and removing acces to phones only shows lacks of enforcing unjustified policies. HR should look into fair treatment of employees and stop supporting unnecessary changes to policies that only affect the morale of the workrs that already been treated like slaves.
    Management is alway excemp themselves off any company policy and they should me measured the same way as production workers,

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

    Pros

    Compensation was competitive for management.

    Cons

    Began hiring executives that where overly assertive and did not understand the business. Continually espousing taking risks, without true data to make an informed risk analysis.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the true culture of lean, thinking in terms of adding value. Understand that it is through serving the customer that you serve the business, If you continue to fail to serve the customer, someone will. Look inward.
