    Pros

    Great experience working at Panduit. Started as an intern and have been learning more and more each day. Great support, good group of co-workers and managers.

    Cons

    Technical products in an evolving industry. It is essential to keep an eye on industry trends and to also understand the markets that affect our business.

    I have been working at Panduit (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I interfaced with on a daily basis either external and internal customers were very nice and great team players to get the job done. Panduit is a good company and treats the employees well, also good benefits

    Cons

    I would say slow advancement, promotion opportunities happen mostly in WHQ but in general it is a good company

    I have been working at Panduit full-time

    Pros

    Great management, wonderful co-workers, and very clean! I enjoy working at Panduit because of the people who work along side me every day, without them I do not know what I would do.

    Cons

    Lean projects are more time consuming and non-beneficial to customer than anything. The company supports quantity over quality at times.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to overwork the people under you. If someone leaves the company, it is unfair to dump all their tasks onto another worker and still pay that worker the same. They are now doing the job of two people for one salary. This leads to exhaustion and unhappy workers.

    I have been working at Panduit as an intern

    Pros

    They pay me $20/hour, and they gave me $500/month as housing compensation for the summer. As an intern in the fiber optics lab, I get to see some of the most impressive equipment in the world. The lab really is one of a kind. They occasionally have me doing typical "female dog work" as an intern, but most of the time I am doing what an actual researcher would do.

    Cons

    They recently layed off a large number of employees at the center for research and development. And there really aren't many exciting things going on in the building.

    Advice to Management

    It does not seem like the higher up business people are willing to do what the scientist tell them is crucial to the company, because they only see in terms of cost and profit. Companies that do not listen to their researchers and engineers always end up faulting.

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

    Pros

    I've worked at Panduit for 30 years, and change was admittedly rather slow in the past, but I've seen tremendous positive, rapid change over the last few years. Elimination of exempt employee time tracking; increased communication and transparency; big investments in R&D; a new world headquarters building close to I80; lots of modern workspace upgrades; increased employee engagement; clearly communicated business strategies; acquisitions; and more. I have no reason to think about working somewhere else at this point, and I am confident in our leadership's ability to keep the company strong no matter what the economy throws at us.

    Cons

    The rapid change is causing stress for some employees, and reorganization efforts have resulted in some necessary reductions in force and employee movement. Not all employees readily embrace the rapid change, while those that do tend to thrive and "go for the ride".

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving change to encourage rapid growth in sales and opportunities, while at the same time continue to improve the employee experience, since the employees are the lifeblood of the company. Improvement is definitely noticeable, while there are always more opportunities.
