I worked at Panduit full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Location (If live in south suberbs)
Decent but expensive benifits

Cons

Location (Panduit is aware of it somewhat unique location and uses it to deter)
Worst political brown nosing I've ever seen
If in "click" crowd (do no wrong) or looked at as expendable (most emplyees)
Management looks out for themselves. "YES" men.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake Up!
Too many undeserving, awful, mid-term managers. They hide/massage truth from superiors. Offset blame, promote on perception not accomplishments.

Doesn't Recommend

No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits which include matching in the 401K and a clean work environment for the most part.

    Cons

    The employees that perform the actual manufacturing work are made to feel as they arent doing enough to make up for all the management mistakes and unneeded overheads in place.
    Off shoring has created delivery and quality problems that have eaten away at the market share to the point that they are now letting some good people go as management tries to figure out how to save their jobs through restructuring and cost reductions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your current managers that cant get along with each other and are creating more problems than they can solve. There is no trust in the current management!!!

    I have been working at Panduit

    Pros

    Clean office, free coffee, free parking, full company match to 3% and half match at 4 and 5% in your 401k, lots of nice people, still offer insurance, flex time is a very good benefit , and yes, it is far better to have a job ther than to have no job at all.

    Cons

    Lack of integrity by some managers, the company is trying to wring more and more productivity from the same people, lying and covering your own rear end are acceptable behaviors modeled by some managers, utter lack of respect by some managers for people on their own team, a toxic environment is some areas. In a word, the place is demoralizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be a huge disconnect between the reporting lately that claims most large company's earnings are up, housing is coming back slowly, unemployment is down, 1st time jobless claims are down, the stock market is soaring, the worst of the bad economy is over, etc. Contrast this with Panduit Management that is closing another plant and laying off (euphemism for firing) many more people. There are still plenty of loafers you could have axed but the politics is over-the-top so some good folks got canned this time. Let's realize it is not the workers who are messing up the company, it is Management that is making mistakes. They seriously need to fire a few of their own. Next time you get on the elevator from any floor to descend to the main floor you will hear the lady of the elevator say "Going down" ... that is a pretty sobering and accurate statement of the current situation.
