    I have been working at Pentair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, descent pay, discounts on company products. Overall it's an okay company they're trying to make it better, it just seems to be disconnected.

    Cons

    Too much shake ups in management, only promote from HQ office, always in plant a seasoned watchdog at smaller satellite sites. Update your ERP systems don't wait untill it goes absolete to do something about it.

    Advice to Management

    There are talented people outside of Anoka, to the board of directors: get rid of the CEO he's wasting investors money, stop ripping the company apart and decide what you want to do. Don't make an acquisition just to split it up again it does not send a good signal to your employees. Instead of paying legal fees give people a bonus.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    Benefits package isn't terrible. (medical and dental and such)

    Cons

    Absolutely no incentive to try and work to your best or put in to provide work you can be proud of. "We appreciate you is thrown around" but never is anything done to reflect that. Workers that put out subpar product are not held accountable. The business is full of nothing but empty promises and kind words.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Every decision I personally have seen either doesn't make a big enough difference or steps backward or is illogical. Respect workers because there is NONE for those who ultimately bring the money into the business
