    Several branches in Chicago suburbs. Some business connections with the big IT companies. Internationally recognized brand name in the industry.

    Pros

    I like working at Panduit.
    Pay is better than surrounding companies.
    Benefits are fair.
    Work is not that hard.
    Bosses leave me alone. I am trusted to do my job.
    Atmosphere is clean, quiet, and climate controlled.

    Cons

    Midnight shift does the best job in the department.
    The supervisors are actually working with employees to get the job done.
    We get along with our bosses and each other.
    They are getting rid of our shift and it does not make sense.
    Our most important customer - Graybar - their orders arrive on our shift.
    They are "moving the employees" where the work is.
    The most important orders arrive on our shift.
    I am being forced to leave my shift that works perfectly with my family.
    The majority of the people on my shift feel the same way.
    We are having record sales and they are trying to save pennies on shift bonuses.
    If they want to shut down the warehouse for a few hours a day how about closing at 7pm.
    No orders come in.
    No orders leave.
    No trucks come in.
    They didn't even ask the management that works in our building before making a huge move.
    Some of them actually know what is going on. Might want to ask them.
    People on midnight shift like working where they work.
    How is this good for the customers?
    How is this good for engagement?
    Does not seem to make sense.

    They have been planning on shutting our shift down for a year now and everyone is afraid for their job.
    Maybe they will rethink this and do what is best for their customers, employees, and future.

    Advice to Management

    Do what is right for your customers and employees.
    Your customers and your employees are your future.

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, location, and mostly good people. Many employees know how good of a company we have been in the past, so trying to hang on until we change back.

    Cons

    Not a lot of trust of employees. Have not focused on the profitable business in years.

    Advice to Management

    Trust, trust, and make decisions in a timely fashion.

    Benefits, although they have evolved and decreased over the years.

    Job security, used to be a company concerned for the people, but now it seems like they just want to get manufacturing out of the country.

    Pros

    Decent pay for the fairly relaxed environment, flex time, average vacation accrual. 401K. Never force overtime. Fairly easy to move between shifts because of the high turnover rate.

    Cons

    After some time almost everyone falls into this pit of hating your job. The warehouse does not have an upbeat environment/culture in any way shape or form. Many times you will ask your foreman a question and they will answer you in a condescending manner or give you the answer that will just get you out of your office, not fix the problem, it gets frustrating,

    Pros

    Good benefits, 401K match, New corporate headquarters.

    Cons

    Lots of inner circles which most of the times work against them selves. Within the last 5 years the company has changed from a family owned company that cared about its employees and products to a company that was more concerned with following the industry standard and volume of products sold.. Quality of products tanked once production was sent over seas.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to practice what they preach. Promote from within stop passing up internal qualified talent.
