    Pros

    Working independently for the most part.

    Cons

    Your job is ALWAYS in jeopardy of relocation. Management (mostly in North Carolina) could care less about you or your passion for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians. Go back to 1st grade and learn to treat others the way you would like to be treated.

    I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid legacy products, brand recognition & market position. Good people in functional roles. Plenty of growth opportunity if you're young and 'up for it', just soak up the skills, try to get some things done, and be prepared to look elsewhere to capitalize on your growth.

    Cons

    Had trouble interpreting long-term vision for direction of the core business due to a somewhat scattered acquisition record and the resultant diversion of resources from projects in progress. Restructuring cycle and turnover shorter than most initiatives, which is extremely disruptive and has resulted in some stagnation.

    Advice to Management

    You are dealing with people; support them. Finish things. Say what you mean, mean what you say, and do what you say you're going to do.
