    Pros

    Fast paced environment with lots of work. The people, for the most part. New plant manager is nicer/more reasonable than the previous one (I have witnessed the previous guy standing outside office restrooms watching the clock to see how long people take to poop) I've seen a few cameras go away (less Big Brother going on?).

    Cons

    This goes for the Stafford Valves and Controls location: Low pay for the high amount of work when compared to industry standards. Low opportunity for internal advancement. Low morale amongst long-timers and hourly workers. Prepare to be tossed into the deep end and subject to unrealistic and/or unexplained expectations, see the lack of living up to those standards reflected in your abysmal performance reviews, work under constant threat of your job being axed, and get straight up run out of there. Micromanagement and manipulation. You are just a number to them. Prepare to be treated like one. You'll get pumped up by and indoctrinated into their Pentair values but in the end you'll still get worked bone-dry.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people, but that should go without saying.
