    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours, friendly employees very open to helping/teaching

    Cons

    Easy to confuse products when I wasn't familiar with them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more standard method of teaching the basics of types of products (basic overview in the form of a digital handbook, PowerPoint slides, etc.)

    I worked at Panduit part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very transparent management for even low level team members.

    Cons

    Shift changes or time off requests can sometimes be unpredictable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have a more fleshed out internship/hire-within program. Panduit has always done very well hiring from within, but they could benefit from more of a tiered approach vs. "Hey we tend to hire from within… you should try to apply!"

    I have been working at Panduit part-time

    Pros

    At Panduit you get roughly 2 weeks vacation per year to start. 5 paid sick days and good health benefits. Overall very friendly atmosphere to work and great pay.

    Cons

    nature of work is rather boring and monotonous, depending on the shift, management tends to talk down to the employees. Otherwise overall there is not much that can be said about this company on the negative side.

    I have been working at Panduit

    Pros

    Panduit offers an excellent benefits package including continuing education program, and they offer a challenging work environment. They are a large company, yet small enough that the average employee can feel like they can make an impact.

    Cons

    There may be excessive focus on top talent as opposed to the growth and development of every employee. As is common with large corporations, any employee must be able to deal with change management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open with the intents of your actions, both short- and long-range. Your employees are intelligent and can see underlying motives.

    I have been working at Panduit

    Pros

    Has issues like any company, but cares about its employees and goes out of its way to ensure they are treated properly. Hard work is rewarded, poor performance is penalized.

    Panduit is very well run and is always thinking of the long-term.

    Cons

    Tends to hang onto poor performers too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going, you're doing the right things.
