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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve, Strive for excellence

    I have been working at Panduit full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Tinley Park, IL

    I worked at Panduit full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get to
    Nice Building
    Decent Cafeteria
    Decent Pay and Benefits
    Flexible start and end times
    Extensive online and classroom training

    Cons

    If you are a woman, don't expect to be treated seriously or treated as an equal. Old Boys club is alive and well.
    HR exists to protect poor upper management, ethics line is a joke, inadequate onboarding, hiding of unethical behavior
    No work at home concessions in certain departments but allowed in others
    If a mistake is made your reputation is tarnished for years, even after performance progress has been made.
    Among the worst management I have ever experienced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start by looking up the word diversity and the role it plays in a successful company. Screen applicants better. Don't pretend your about employees when your ethics like is only there to protect the company instead of the employee. Encourage your managers to have candid dialogs with their people before performance ratings are given. Take a look at the employees you have and get rid of the ineffective ones even though they have many years of service. Give opportunities to others besides the "chosen" ones.
