Pros

Was a good place to work when work was available. Pentair lost many jobs due to poor quality/personel turnover

Cons

Very poor management, no clear vision of where they need to go or what markets to attack...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to find talented people to get the company back in line. QC needs to improve dramatically

    Upper finance management seems more interested in playing favorites than true people development

    Pros

    Great global reach so many opportunities to travel internationally and learn the business in different countries. The people overall are very experienced and excel at their jobs.

    Cons

    It is obvious management at the upper level of finance plays favorites - decisions about hiring/firing/retention seem more based on getting on upper finance's "good side" rather than true employee performance. As a result, there is a lack of trust in upper management's retention and personnel development decisions, especially if you have a direct or dotted-line reporting to the CFO. This has become increasingly obvious now that preparations for the merger are advancing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job retaining talent, especially during the merger process. Make sure retention and development of talent is fair, not based on a single individual's opinions/views.
