    Pros

    People are great - smart, hard working, team players. CADDY product line is strong, with incredible brand loyalty. Although we've had many corporate changes lately, it's a positive culture with healthy work/life balance. Innovation, creativity, collaboration and hard work are the legacy of this company, and continue today.

    Cons

    Systems are older. Many tasks are manual that could be automated.

    Advice to Management

    The Pentair Cultural Training has made a positive impact. Please continue the program in both companies moving forward.

    Pros

    Great and supportive people to worth with and flexible when it comes to work/life balance.

    Cons

    About every year, there are mass company changes and reorganization, which leads to layoffs or terminations.

    Advice to Management

    Before you decide to institute a new change, wait a couple years to see the results. Your not going to see immediate results and are basing future changes on results that are not fully backed.

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

    Pros

    I really can't think of any pros to working for Pentair, except that the pay was good. I've never felt so defeated working for a company in my life.

    Cons

    This company does not care about its employees. You will never have a voice, but rather you are just expected to follow procedures, even if they are not in the best interest of the company. The bosses are all too scared to stand up for the employees. The company can't make up its mind and it changing monthly. They do monthly 5s audits of your office and you are only allowed 5 personal items, plus have to have EVERYTHING labelled and alphabetized. Its just strange. There is not standard rules- so what you are allowed to do changes depending on your boss' opinion of you. The HR department is basically invisible and the IT department wont respond to anything. The expectation is that you will be connected 24/7, even on paid time off or company shut down.
