OK, but Managers have too much power/control over employees

Former Employee - Business Development Manager

I worked at Panduit full-time

Pros

Pretty good work/life balance-- stable for the most part if you work hard, and dont ruffle feathers...

Cons

Need to shake things up at the top--- think their empowering creativity/technology but its very controlled-- most upper managers are super political as they have been raised that way at Panduit.
and the micro-management -- its so hierarchical its not motivational at all..
The control factor limits creativity and empowerment--

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, clean work environment, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Way too many layers of management!!! No respect for hard working long term employees. Corporate management treats employees as a "number on their books" and base personnel decisions on $$$. No career advancement unless you are in with the right "clique"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your good employees with respect! Managers need to learn people management and communication skills!

    I have been working at Panduit full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Private company
    Owns manufacturing
    They invest in training
    Lots of long term employees

    Cons

    Stagnant in new products
    Resistant to change
    Reluctant to move into new markets and channels
    Very cautious about spending money on new product development
    Lots of talk, lots of meetings, not enough risk taking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When hiring people, make it clear what they should expect.
    Don't hire engineers to do the job of marketing or sales.
    Give people a vision and strategy for the future.
    Allow for risks to be taken.
    Create incubators for new business opportunities that are separate from existing business processes.
    Incentivize creative thinking by rewarding people who are successful after taking risks.
