    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

    I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I would recommend working here if your kids are hungry and the bank is going to foreclose on your house.

    Cons

    This has been one of the worst places I have ever worked. You are promised the moon to get you in the door, but they haven't changed in 40 years! Any training or skills you have had will atrophy at this place. If you are a professional don't stay here too long, you will be working on 20 year old software and become unmarketable. Co-workers are more interested in blaming some one for problems than working with you to solve them. This is promoted by management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing politics, listen to your employees. Work with other departments instead of looking for ways to backstab fellow managers.
