    I have been working at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    GREAT work life balance
    Leaders are focused on coaching/teaching instead of delegating
    Good visibility with the c-suite
    The new Pentair is based on our win right values and focuses on balancing accountability with empathy for others.

    Really great place to start off your career. I've never experienced the coaching and opportunity Pentair offers at other companies.

    Cons

    We are a lean organization, sometimes we run VERY lean.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in coaching/teaching programs for your employee. Developing employees at a young age for long careers at Pentair.

    Pros

    Best part of my job is to know all top managers of most of the unit as I work their unit now and then. Meeting international unit's employees, when you travel or at your own unit, I like most. Flexibility is key here. Just focus on completion of your project and deal with everyone with respect, you will be star. Thanks!

    Cons

    Lack of training in my area, which is NOT a huge negative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees trained so they can excel and company can too.

    I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pentair does lean better than some companies. Learn some techniques and take them with you. Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    There is no stability in plant leadership. Site leaders last just over a year. Consider it a temp job. Nobody is promoted out of Hanover Park. it is a place where careers go to die.

    Advice to Management

    Chaotic leadership starts from the corporate level. Start there to establish stability at the plants.
