    I have been working at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    If you need to get away with anything, you can. If you need insurance it is fairly good through the company.

    Cons

    If you value hard work ethic and a strong community this is not the place. Management is not strong, leaders do nothing besides give non-answers and avoid problems. Kind words are said but action rarely follows.

    Advice to Management

    Cut and dry; do your job. If people need to be reprimanded do it. If people need to be fired do it. If people want to earn more responsibilities and add to the company listen to them. Folks who do their job and do it well are going to see people screwing around and see that their value will be recognized far better somewhere else.
