I have been working at Pentair

Pros

Interesting products, and brands are well known. The locations are spread out across the region and offer lateral movement within the organization.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations of product development to production. Need for FMEA process to avoid rush to production, which only creates waste.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to stop letting customers run your business. Of course the customer is king, but transparency should not mean the customer taking over.

    I worked at Pentair

    Pros

    Still the leader in Water Treatment manufacturing and the industry is growing globally though down in Residential filtration. Work environment is generally flexible.

    Cons

    The mismanage the business at a higher level making decisions that cost the company great losses and the employees a lot of extra work, stress and embarrassment in front of customers when product quality and delivery are degraded. Each year of the past 4 they let go several employees to cut costs and when they don't re-hire those people left are piled with more work and no additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making decisions to move products off-shore before you are prepared with enough stock of product. Stick to schedules for delivery and be honest and realistic with the OEM customers that suffer due to Pentair's incompetence.

    I have been working at Pentair

    Pros

    Good experience for an intern. Was allowed to experience product engineering department and get a feel for if I liked it.

    Cons

    Could have been more engineering related. Boss was kind of full of himself but that could be an isolated incident

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make dialogue more open between lower levels and upper levels. Communicate decisions more with engineers. Give engineers more input in decision making.
