    Pros

    My last 5 years have been my best ever! I left with close to $200,000....plus 6 months pay....and unemployment for 158 weeks! Hope everybody gets a package as I did. It's not all about the $$$ you make....but how much you leave with!

    Cons

    Love the people....was able to play "grab-ass" at times during my 43 years. Lots of hard work also...luckily I had many people who would "carry-me!"

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the workers!

    I have been working at Panduit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Clean environment. Finally moving in the right direction with technological advances and equipment upgrades in the factory. People all striving for the same vision.

    Cons

    Same as most companies, trying to do more with less creates some additional stress. It's hard to meet deadlines when there is no wiggle room.

    Advice to Management

    Continue communicating the vision and mission. Help create easy to understand goal linkage for all levels of employees. Specific examples of how each employee fits into the big picture will help build more trust and engagement.

    I have been working at Panduit as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some interesting and difficult projects are given to co-ops. Given a fair amount of breathing room and leeway. Given constructive and useful feedback from others.

    Cons

    Some menial and mind-numbing tasks. Learning the systems and the format of things was difficult and confusing at first.

    I worked at Panduit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair compensation, hard work paid off for personal growth, fair time off policies. Many times i heard women had no opportunity for growth. Since I make my own judgement, I experienced outstanding growth opportunity and offered the same to all employees as management.

    Cons

    bring back 100% pay for fmla and get rid of abusers,

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve, Strive for excellence

    I have been working at Panduit full-time

    Pros

    No weekends, latest shift ends at 6:30pm, able to flex a bit in a call center environment, variety of work within the call center. There are times where the calls do come non-stop but not the norm. Able to multi-task between calls keeps your mind fresh and not the same mind numbing questions and answers in a typical call center environment. Generous 401k plan, health, dental and vision insurance. Very diverse workforce. Free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and free women hygiene products in bathroom.

    Cons

    The pay is low for the amount of knowledge expected to learn and retain. When trying to inform management of how something may not work, it has to be seen before management believes. Managers not consistent among themselves on how things should be done or offered.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the flexibility in scheduling and working with your employees. Has really increased morale since this has been done. Ask why we think something will not work and then explain to us why it has to be done the way you are requesting it to be done. Be consistent among each other.

    I have been working at Panduit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for over 10 years and have moved into several positions along the way, each of them a promotion opportunity. Company offers tuition reimbursement which is a huge benefit. Flex time is great, good benefits and friendly people.

    Cons

    Over importance placed on an Engineering Degree Experience is taken into account more than skills at times Executive Leadership isn't always visible/accessible

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate your employees for opportunities for advancement, a lot of good talent within the organization.
