    I worked at Pentair full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Top notch co-workers and products.

    Cons

    During transitions no thought was given to past performance, sadly it all came down to who you knew. The side taking leadership roles acted as conquerors which pushed good employees out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    This company is continually improving and expanding as it works to stay competitive in a growing market. I have had a very positive experience here.

    Cons

    This job can require longer work hours, and that can definitely be a negative for some. Lower paid jobs especially have less flexibility.

    Current Intern - Design Engineer in Stafford, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    Pentair does a good job of getting you work immediately.
    This is a lean company and has a lot of room for growth and opportunity.
    There is an open door policy and everyone is always so inclusive.
    Joining Pentair is like joining a family of people who have the same goal in mind.

    Cons

    There was a lack of training. It was almost as if they threw you into the pool and told you to swim before actually teaching you how to swim. There was not much preparation for a new employee. It took almost a week to get my laptop and even longer to get my phone and business cards.
