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

    Pros

    Collectively some of the nicest people. Competetive Pay for Southside company

    Cons

    Poor accountability.

    The personification of Groupthink.

    Track record of creating an environment where most of the best talent has come and gone due to frustation, disorganization, consistantly changing targets, or failed commitments of promisses that are often not delivered.

    Very much steeped in the buddy system and nepotism where employees that are liked or buddies of executives are given passes on poor performance in terms of the results that they deliver.

    Matrix leadership is so convoluted that change management is extremely slow and often ineffective.

    Turnover is VERY high for, at least at headquarters.

    There is a lot of “leadership” from people without the educational or professional experience to justify their standing in the roles they hold.

    Unwilling to make necessary investments in resources and people to achieved stated goals… not walking the walk. Expectations to drive $100M of results with fraction of necessary inputs to achieved stated goals thus resulting in many who are over worked and/or anxious about their job security.

    Resistance to align various organizations to assure proper strategic alignment of stated objectives…. Too many people self-interested in their own power centers.

    Lastly, this is a company that has collectively failed to acknowledge the commodization of its products and there is not enough differentiation of its products and offerings that justify its historic price premiums. This does not bode well for long term growth and sustainability of the company in its current structure which means that a major change in the business formation is inevitable with the current offerings.

    Pros

    Fringe Benefits @ least it's a job is all I can say

    Cons

    Stalker management/Liars, can't trust, looks down on employees

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking down on people/workers with skills, they are feeding you and paying your bills, be honest, stop lying, deceitful, downsize managers, too many chiefs, no indians, keep getting rid of workers, who is going to do the work? Managers can't. they think their too good.

    I worked at Panduit full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - great benefits, 401K etc.
    - lower rank coworkers are very nice, very Midwestern
    - headquarter building is beautiful

    Cons

    - if you aren't in the "in-crowd" cliques you get overlooked for promotion or civility, just like back in high school
    - management fills open positions with anyone internally just to fill the position because they don't have time to look for qualified people. People are getting positions and working on projects that know nothing about the subject or position they have just been re-assigned/promoted
    - Many employees despite recognition program are terribly negative.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your director and VP level managers and review their people skills. Cliques are absolutely horrible and are killing morale. Culture of accountability is not working as employees are doing it just because they have to, to managements faces, behind your back they think its a joke. Employee attitudes are absolutely horrible!

    Pros

    Good benefits. Love their products. Well respected company.

    Cons

    Have to be in the in-crowd to go anywhere. Worst in iT then anywhere else. Colleagues worked hard with little to no recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Start assessing IT management, who are mostly unqualified to be in their positions. They use fear to manage their staff and if you are in the in-crowd, get promoted.
