    Pros

    Great experience working at Panduit. Started as an intern and have been learning more and more each day. Great support, good group of co-workers and managers.

    Cons

    Technical products in an evolving industry. It is essential to keep an eye on industry trends and to also understand the markets that affect our business.

    Pros

    Awesome tuition program and development opportunities. They are paying for me to get an advanced degree and I never even see a bill. New, state of the art world headquarters is being built and will be fantastic. Good ideas. Recruitment program is good, seeks to hire the best employees.

    Cons

    Bogged down in procedure. Focus is on process improvement but senior management ties your hands behind your back. The process improvement department overall is a joke. They put the focus on the process rather than the result. What a waste. They have a lot of good ideas. But their focus is so muddy, they get so mired down in buzzwords, that nothing gets done EFFECTIVELY. It can be frustrating. Performance management needs refocusing. The great recruitment plan ensures that we hire the best employees, but then I am only allowed to rate 5% of them as top performers at the end of the year. This impacts morale. If we're hiring top candidates, wouldn't it stand to reason that we would have more top performers? We let good people get away by not rewarding them. No flexibility for exempt employees...no work from home, no telecommuting at all.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people, trust in the talent you have. Better vacation/sick/time off policies. Don't make exempt employees badge in and out.

    Pros

    Panduit products are innovative and highly respected in the industry. Pleasure to promote and sell in the market place. Known for enabling sales to have the tools necessary to be successful. District management open to innovative thinking and positively rewards forward thinking. I am a better sales person for having worked for Panduit and look to grow and prosper as our company does.

    Cons

    As compared with other companies its size, no real down sides worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management could spend more time in the field. It helps to reintroduce your selves to our customers

    Pros

    Panduit is a business that is able to adapt to economic and industry changes. The company has continued to grow eventhough most manufacturing based companies in US have decreased. The business shares it's profits with employees and reinvests a large portion back into the business thru expanding into new product offerings, infrastructure(systems/buildings) and its employees. I've been with Panduit 18 years and have been promoted numerous times. The company has a fantastic training and employee support programs.

    Cons

    The company is believes in continuous improvement which also means continuous changes. This can be challenging at times, but also means that the business is not afraid to make the decisions and risks that it will take to survive in a competetive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with the strategy, it's definitely working. Please continue to share information to employees in Annual Quality presentation, Quarterly State of business webinar, Weekly employee news. The Lean program is also very beneficial in terms of allowing employees to communicate their suggestions and ideas to improve processes.

    Cons

    No cons - a large global manufacturer and don't have to take the trip downtown.

    Pros

    Has issues like any company, but cares about its employees and goes out of its way to ensure they are treated properly. Hard work is rewarded, poor performance is penalized. Panduit is very well run and is always thinking of the long-term.

    Cons

    Tends to hang onto poor performers too long.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, you're doing the right things.

    Pros

    Panduit 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.

    Cons

    There 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 Management

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

    Pros

    SynapSense provides a compelling and stimulating work environment. As a small, rapidly growing company, each of us can see the impact of our efforts on a daily basis. Teamwork is very clearly part of the culture. Senior management conducts business with a focus on ethics, integrity and transparency. As shareholders we all understand clearly the goals of the company and in my experience, each person is highly invested in our success. Our disciplined approach to work is balanced by a "family first" core value. It truly is a great place to work....Really!

    Cons

    There is always risk in a small company but that is also part of the reward, as we have grown so much over the past years. We can see our successes as we look back and are proud of how far we have come. It is a unique opportunity to be a part of something from the ground floor.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to staff for success
