    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.

    Pros

    Fair compensation, hard work paid off for personal growth, fair time off policies. Many times i heard women had no opportunity for growth. Since I make my own judgement, I experienced outstanding growth opportunity and offered the same to all employees as management.

    Cons

    bring back 100% pay for fmla and get rid of abusers,

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve, Strive for excellence

    Pros

    Hard work pays off here - if you put in the effort and bring good ideas to the table you will get noticed and rewarded.
    Good opportunities for women - it's about what you get done, not your gender
    Fair pay, good benefits
    Company has always been fair to me when I needed family time

    Cons

    Expected to put in hours - face time is valued but not really any different at other companies I have worked for

    Advice to Management

    More formal program for ideas and innovation - it can be tricky to navigate
