    Great people and able to contribute to work that is making an impact. Flexible schedules allow for a decent work-life balance. Like working at a place where quality matters.

    Cons

    Pros

    Great co-worker, pay, benefits and work life balance for most people.

    Cons

    From 2014-2017 this division of Panduit was on a meteoric rise. Projects were getting implemented and very close to completed. In 2018 this came to a screeching halt or at least minimal progress. In 2017 managers and employees were on the same page and moving in the same direction, there was a bond and trust between the managers and employees developing that hadn't been there in previous years. In 2018 the trust and bond has been completely fractured and is getting worse. We are returning to the non-transparent cronyism days of old. The situation that some employees are being forced into in order to help or please one of the chosen few is unacceptable. The craziest thing is this group of managers has no idea or would care if they had an idea of how infuriating this is to a large group of employees. Someone above the divisions management level or HR needs to look into what is going on here and start asking some questions. If that is not done soon this divisions moral and trust may not be recoverable. There is a real problem here and it starts at the top of this divisions food chain.
     In early 2018 employees were being pulled aside in groups to give their opinions and input on how we could make the division and company better. We really felt like we were turning another corner and building on 2017. The people chosen to recieve and relay the information could be trusted to keep the contributors names confidential and keep the group in the loop. There were actions taken on the suggestions and it was appreciated by the employees. Well both the group input sessions and the actions that had been taking place have stopped completely since sometime this past summer. There was a forced change in the personnel of the engagement group and that seemed to be the end of it. The juggling of managers has created chaos. We feel sorry for those that were left to try and make things work and deal with all the issues. Upper management in the division has to be blind and/or just don't care if they can't see the negative impact this has had on employees and especially the managers that were left to try and clean up the mess. High energy upbeat managers with positive outlooks have been worn down and look as if they are just hanging by a thread. It's sad to watch it happen. For their own good I hope they move on to something that won't have this effect on their spirit or health.

    Advice to Management

    I am not an employee who complains and love this company. Please take this review very serious and act on it. I hope it is not too late. In 2017 I would have went to my manager with these concerns if I had them at that time. Today, unfortunately I'm far more comfortable using this platform. I believe most employees have again begun to clam up in fear of retaliation or being seen as disgruntled when it is really just concern.
     Lockport is in trouble and the real issues start at the top of the food chain here. I can't believe we have headed so far off track from the positives that were taking place. I wish we could rewind to 2017 and erase 2018.

    Pros

    Free Ice - just have to remove the carbon
    Private bathrooms - good place to sleep

    Cons

    Many companies are copying the same business model, replacing full time workers with temporary employees, ridding themselves of older and higher cost employees. This is the American way now and that is why Unions will be more prominent in the future.
    What separates Panduit from other companies is the Classless way they handle themselves. Target who you want to get rid of. Find an HR person who will do your dirty work. Clean house by spreading lies and creating falsehoods. when the job is done, get rid of that HR person. Do this in all divisions and then get rid of senior HR people. I recently read a review comparing Panduit to the Mob . This was very accurate. They are dirty and its not isolated to one division. It is company wide. Like most companies , it all about profit. The new style is getting the desired results. Doesn't matter how unethical it is.
    There is not one person I communicate with that has a positive attitude about being employed here.

    Advice to Management

    Too late. Instead of acting like you care about your Engagement Survey, starting doing something that is in line with you advertised Core Values.

    Pros

    - Fun Work Environment
    - Great Products
    - Wonderful Customer Service and Technical Support
    - Great Benefits

    Cons

    - Strategy changes drastically every 6 months
    - They promise things like visiablity into sales but never or partially deliver it which you are rated upon.
    - No longer is being a faithful employee worth anything to them.

    Advice to Management

    Quit making promises that you don't deliver on and just make excuses on why it wasn't done. Re-evaluate your strategy on who is dedicated to making you successful.

    Also the family needs to come back into managing the day to day business.

    I have been working at Panduit full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I speak only for the Georgia facility. I have heard that Panduit did suffer from narrow minded cultural issues in the past and built a siloed environment but in my couple of years here I have never seen a company try harder to shift/promote its focus on the a positive working culture. The employee engagement is off the charts. The working conditions are friendly and accommodating. The people are like family. The company must be performing well as the profit sharing has been near record highs recently. I am enjoying my career (finally). I no longer dread going to work like I did in decades past. I met the CEO and he is down to Earth and genuinely likable with the deep passion for Panduit’s success. I can’t name a time someone here complained about being treated poorly or unfairly. It’s a wonderful place to work. (Ga)

    Cons

    Very dated facility, budgets are tight and finance department seems to be the ones managing growth and manufacturing strategies, HR is offsite and not always helpful, cafe is being shutdown at end of year, some quirky spouse insurance rules, etc. so it’s not perfect but still a great place to work

    Advice to Management

    In Ga, no advice needed. Great work!
    In HQ-consider automakers (Toyota/Lexus)create another offering, crank up production (24-7) step off the premium train and grab that high output/low cost market. Oh and send us one of those Pizza vending machines. Really!!
