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

    I worked at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    Really good benefits-lots of paid days off.

    Cons

    Low pay, lots of management, disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of bringing in many temporary employees for low wage and expecting them to perform as if they are pentair employees, hire people at fair market value and get the loyal long term employees.

    "Lack of leadership or accountability"

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

    Pros

    Convenience for the career path I wanted to take

    Cons

    The pay is too low for the work load expected of you. The lack of leadership and communication leaves constant rumors and fear hanging over you every day of work. Being taken advantage of for your great work ethic and experience and being shown zero acknowledgment or career level progress for that will really get to you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who deserve to be managers and know how to empower their employees!

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

    Pros

    This job runs pretty smoothly with a nice environment. If I had a chance to go back I definitely would.

    There is a very strict attendance policy, even if you or your children get sick, they still don't care.

    Advice to Management

    You should be more compassionate to your employees shortcomings.

    Everyone at the Elkhart IN facility was great. Best boss I have ever worked under.

    Pros

    IT guys here are really nice when babes have nice butt.
    They will hang around chicks with nice butt like leeches.

    Cons

    IT department at this location is piece of crap. Support level work elementary grade level. Every time you need PC support, submit ticket then they closed without fix the problem. They are too scare to touch applications. Lack of knowledge, no confidence, blame.

    Advice to Management

    This help desk department need lot of improvement.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    People are great to work with. We have become a family just to survive.

    Cons

    Quit treating your people like dogs! They are what makes the company survive at the moment as we can't get out our own way - errors, late shipments, missed changes, etc. Management only cares about keeping their butts safe and everyone else is on their own. This is the most dysfunctional company I have ever worked for. I can't believe it is still in business. Getting rid of the people with the most knowledge won't solve the problems - just add to them.

    Advice to Management

    There are no words! The management "team" currently in place will drive the company into bankruptcy and the workers are the ones that will suffer. We don't have "separation" packages worth millions. Try living on unemployment for a while!!!!

    Get out if your own way
