    Pros

    Information is not suppressed or distorted, so people can find out what they need to know to do their work.
    Individuals are given meaningful chances to grow, becoming more valuable to the organization in the process.

    Cons

    People’s day to day work makes sense to them, and they understand how their own jobs fit in with everyone else’s.
    And they are not hindered by stupid rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    proper training to the employees

    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.

    I worked at Pentair as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked there as an engineering intern, and there was never a shortage of work for me to do. It was a bit hectic at times trying to get everything done, but that's better in my mind than not having enough to do. The people I worked with were awesome as well.

    Cons

    There were a few projects that were relatively unclear to me for a while, and it was hard to get more details from my manager due to how busy he also was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constantly changing plant management makes it very difficult for a plant to actually get traction towards improving. Each new manager may have new ideas, but if those ideas aren't given time to be realized, it leads to wasted time on many projects which never reach their full potential.
