    I have been working at Pentair as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    There are very few. Pentair Water India is a subsidiary plant of the Pentair Ltd. The main company has a respectable brand name, however the Goa operations do not live up to it.

    Cons

    Poor working conditions, especially for engineering graduates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to focus on the people, on training and work conditions.

    Former Employee - Webmaster in Delavan, WI (US)

    I worked at Pentair full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Being a very large corporation, they are able to pay relatively well. They're also able to weather economic storms without worry about collapsing.

    Cons

    Pentair's "go-to" solution in poor economic times seems to be to cut head count. When the economy dips and Pentair has a bad quarter or two, you can bet good employees will start to disappear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on making better products, thereby cutting warranty. The savings there would allow you to keep good people employed during temporary down-turns.
