    There has been some turnover at the leadership and plant level but this is to be expected with any recent acquisition.

    Stay the corse and keep hiring in strong leaders. The next few years will be very exciting but will also bring lots of change.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, descent pay, discounts on company products. Overall it's an okay company they're trying to make it better, it just seems to be disconnected.

    Cons

    Too much shake ups in management, only promote from HQ office, always in plant a seasoned watchdog at smaller satellite sites. Update your ERP systems don't wait untill it goes absolete to do something about it.

    Advice to Management

    There are talented people outside of Anoka, to the board of directors: get rid of the CEO he's wasting investors money, stop ripping the company apart and decide what you want to do. Don't make an acquisition just to split it up again it does not send a good signal to your employees. Instead of paying legal fees give people a bonus.
