    I have been working at Pentair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my first year, I was pleased to find Pentair to be a very helpful and collaborative culture. Never have I heard the phrase "that's not my job/problem." I feel good working for a company that not only promotes "Win Right" values, but "walks the talk."

    Cons

    Like any large corporation, process and decisions can be slow. The company is very diversified, so it can take a while to fully grasp the business and navigate channels.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote the Win Right values and help foster greater collaboration across businesses.
