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 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.

    Pros

    Global company, good brands, good people

    Cons

    Little to no training available, little budget money for any extras like travel, office supplies, advertising, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO Randy Hogan needs to look closer at the management of each facility to make sure they are actually following his philosophies. He believes in marketing, branding, advertising but each facility is not focused on those areas. Finance runs the show and does not promote the brands.
