    Pros

    Good people in Europe. Core decisions made in the US. Sadly every day escalation requires senior leaders to support and push through

    Cons

    Lack of resources, slow to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make changes quicker, ensure all are bought into the strategy (grass root am's). Empower every employee rather than just senior management

    Pros

    Excellent and innovative product range and solutions. Has many talented people.

    Cons

    A leadership team which is ultra conservative and prehistoric in their management style. It operates a blame culture and, the CFO in particular, is very narrow minded in outlook and "rules" by fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for major changes at the top in order to bring the company into the 21st century.

    I worked at Panduit full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job and if you want to go nowhere in life, it's right for you. A very good place to learn what not to do in business.

    Cons

    Working here could damage your credibility. The worst customer service ever, lack of direction and weak middle management with no influence. It feels like a cult and is run like a large scale lifestyle business from the US. Unless a customer is what they class a strategic, they will constantly disappoint, very bad communication and even worse execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat customers and employees how you would like to be treated.

    Pros

    product what else is there to say ???

    Cons

    -bad management at customer service some uni kids leading this department
    -a test should show your skills? no way without on the job training
    -some people with bad attitudes towards new comers, try to exclude people as if they are it because they work there longer
    -it is not difficult to be friendly to new people you were in their shoes once as well !!
    -they think it is such a difficult job but it is the most boring job I have ever done
    -it is just like a call center emails and some phone calls

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not just listen to managers other people do the work
    HR you are not there for other employees only for management

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

    Pros

    Can't think of any. Quality of products perhaps.

    Cons

    Lack of competence in almost every department. Errors and missed deadlines are the standard. Senior Management completely away from real issues or not wanting to change the status quo. Feeling of lack lack of control over the business and even control over supply chain. Very old fashioned, no flexibility, no understanding of how to manage and retain employees. HR does not exist unless needing to execute senior management commands, mainly driven from US. Lack of a real culture and sense of belonging, several employees have an attitude problem for some unknown reason. Morale is very low and senior management too busy to get to pensionable age rather than taking ownership of problems. Nothing to learn, no career prospects just frustration if you are a professional who wants to drive results and be recognised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get proper, detailed feedback from employees and act upon the real issues without trying to cover up. Get advice from an external consultancy on how to implement radical changes. Too many divisions, too many silos, too many products without proper strategies, matrix structure not working, need to have someone driving in a cohesive manner across functions.
