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

    Pros

    The location in Solon Ohio has great products and even greater people. This location has been thriving for over 100 years.

    Pentair is in the process of impimenting Lean and has upgraded many of the machines and technology across all three plants.

    The brands manufactured in Solon are word renown and their diversity is what has lead to this site being so successful.

    Cons

    There has been some turnover at the leadership and plant level but this is to be expected with any recent acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the corse and keep hiring in strong leaders. The next few years will be very exciting but will also bring lots of change.

    I worked at Pentair as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cooperative and helpful coworkers, laid-back atmosphere, meaningful and structured work projects

    Cons

    ERP and PDM adds several hours to short projects, sometimes quadrupling the time it takes to get through projects and increasing the margin of error drastically

    Advice to Management

    Do a complete rework of the data management system of the company to make it more common-sense and user-friendly
