    I worked at Pentair full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The type of industry Pentair plays in

    Cons

    Acquisitions are made with a holding mentality. There is no common MRP system, some GBU´s (Global Business Units) overlaps each other and way too much politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending money on employee training in winning right and take yourselves a deep class in it

    I worked at Pentair

    Pros

    Pentair really seemed to care about growth for the benefits of its employees and stockholders, but had a good way of making its associates feel valued even though they were in the midst of evolving into a large corporation during the time I was there.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was a challenge, there seemed to be an unwritten rule about hours worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage movement internally instead of hiring outside so often.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In my first year, I was pleased to find Pentair to be a very helpful and collaborative culture. Never have I heard the phrase "that's not my job/problem." I feel good working for a company that not only promotes "Win Right" values, but "walks the talk."

    Cons

    Like any large corporation, process and decisions can be slow. The company is very diversified, so it can take a while to fully grasp the business and navigate channels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote the Win Right values and help foster greater collaboration across businesses.
