    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.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work on all aspects of product design.

    Design and manufacture on site. (For now)

    Stable sales and company growth.

    Investment in training and technologies.

    The best team I’ve been a part of and some of the smartest people I’ve met.

    Cons

    Many levels of management within team. Managers don’t communicate well with each other, so you end up providing redundant updates and sometimes receiving different directions.

    Leadership values timeline over innovation.

    High turnover of manufacturing staff leads to lack of support.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to each other. Don’t blindly cut a year out of product development timelines. Hire operations staff.

    Keep supporting team environment. That’s what makes this a good place to work and a great place to learn.

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

    Pros

    Good pay. Good benefits. Good overall values.

    Cons

    Constant turnover at the executive level leads to regular change of philosophical direction. So, if you are not able to adjust your style as a manager, you will end up on the hot seat.

    Advice to Management

    Value skill rather than people that will tell you what you want to hear.
