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

Pros

Was excellent when started. Common direction and goals.

Cons

Top Management either wants certain aspects to fail or they are oblivious. Either way direction is on a quick downward slope. Lots of higher management that don't add value while cutting the mid to low level of employees that actually do the work.
Bottom line is all this company cares about, employees are tools to be cut whenever possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire your upper management or pay attention.

    I have been working at Pentair full-time

    Pros

    Good People to work with and good products ensure you the ability to sell materials. The product portfolio is large and recognized world wide for its quality.

    Cons

    Operationally a nightmare, the company is disconnected internally and lacks focus. The distribution channel is fragmented and massive increases in Inside Sales support is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have Operations report to the Sales Management team and combine thier efforts so that they are working together to achieve the same goals.
