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

    Pros

    good pay and better benefits, direct dposit with 24/7 computer access to payroll and benefits as well as employee discounts. well organized, worker safety policys followed, machines well maintained, and very nice tooling. Most gages and measuring instruments provided, full service tool crib. Steel Workers union. Very particular on hiring and do a good job of briniging in quality workers.

    Cons

    no AC in shop, so it gets hot in summer. Management changes gears often and sometimes that hurts production, but overall a good place to work.

    I have been working at Pentair as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, comfortable environment. I have enjoyed working at Pentair. There is a real positive, upbeat, team atmosphere. The aquatics life-support industry is fascinating.

    Cons

    I was hired under temporary contract to work on the catalog and enjoyed my time here thoroughly. I just wish they could hire me permanently!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hiring two people, part time, to share the designer/photographer position would be a good idea.

    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.

    As with ever company they could improve the overall definitions/communication of each group's metrics...one departments good metric can cause another department to have a bad result.
