    Great company, Quality focused

    Warehouse Technician I (Former Employee) DeKalb, IL

    ProsVery transparent management for even low level team members.

    ConsShift changes or time off requests can sometimes be unpredictable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt 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!"

    Awesome Family atmosphere

    Warehouse Technician I (Current Employee) DeKalb, IL

    ProsAt 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.

    Consnature 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Panduit is a good company to work for with good benefits and an engaging, challenging work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tinley Park, IL

    ProsPanduit 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.

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