    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.

    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 Management

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

  9. Decent place of employment - good people, poor management.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity if you are looking for it. Good benefits. Middle management and below are great to work with. Excellent company to start with.

    Cons

    Revolving door at all levels. Lack of all foundational processes. Complete disconnect between management and the rest of the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn to understand the middle and bottom levels of the workforce. Simply saying "we want your input" and ignoring that input does not fair well when moving to a better culture.
