    I worked at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    They used to be really good with training and getting people involved. The senior leadership used to be engaged before they became too full of themselves.

    Cons

    Became a Short term finance and HR driven company. They talk about win-right which only applies if you are below a VP level. They are very poor at giving recognition to the people who truly deserve it. If you are a minority or woman you will be treated better and promoted faster.

    Advice to Management

    They are too arrogant to care about advice. They need to clean house on their HR at all levels. The companies who truly practice win-right don't need to talk about it all the time. Leaving was the best thing that happened to me.

    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.
