    Decent place to work -- but how long will you be there?

    Customer Support - General (Former Employee) Delavan, WI (US)

    ProsWhile working there, they provided training relevant to my current job, as well as providing training that would allow me to be promoted.
    The pay and benefits package was very adequate for the position and amount of work required.
    Working conditions were good. The co-workers and supervisors always ready to help out if needed.

    ConsWhen economic conditions got tough, Pentair's go-to plan was to cut the head count. If there was a poor quarter, everyone was on edge wondering how long they may have a job.
    It was also sometimes difficult to get things done because of bureaucratic red tape. Managers had budgets to keep, had to report to corporate HQ, etc.
    In several cases, not enough time/energy was spent on product improvement. There were products with known issues that simply never got fixed.

    Advice to Senior Management1) Figure out a better way to properly staff for seasonal peaks and valleys.
    2) Try other means of cutting costs rather than sudden (and seemingly random) cuts of head count.
    3) Spend more time and resources improving product quality!
