    I have been working at Pentair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong brands; global footprint; good people at the mid-manager level and below.

    Cons

    Highly dysfunctional leadership team at the platform/corporate level; functional groups seem to be running the business (HR, marketing); recent "cost out" activities may have long-lasting negative effects on the business.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication; more focus on people as opposed to process; look at long-term strategic vision and not just day-to-day profits.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We represent great products. Some of the employees in this company are great at mentoring.

    Cons

    Benefits seem below average. Lower than average pay. HR doesn't reveal what hay level we are at and what salary range our hay level has.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up-front about pay range. Offer career ladder options. Without that, it seems like we are expected to stay in the same job indefinitely.

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

    Pros

    There is no "good" reason to work here except for a paycheck

    Cons

    morale has gone out the door since Pentair took over operations.
    company needs to get a grip on reality.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the talent you have on the manufacturing floor. There are REALLY HARD & DEDICATED WORKERS feeling like they are being bullied to quit so they can hire cheaper help
