    Pros

    Great benefits and people. Panduit is a stable job and management does their best to find a position for everyone instead of letting them go.

    Cons

    Lots of reorganization but always for the better. Panduit is not always as transparent as they could be. They need a better walking track.

    Advice to Management

    It feels like the strategy is always changing. They could do a better job of aligning the business units with the biz dev people.

    I have been working at Panduit full-time

    Pros

    I've been at Panduit now for almost half my life. One of the things that's been consistent about the company throughout all this time is the people. I've been very fortunate to work with a lot of good people over the years. Sure, there are jerks occasionally but you're going to find that anywhere you go to some extent. I also find that Panduit is really good about investing in its employees. Through programs like tuition assistance and mentoring, they have a good track record for helping employees evolve personally and professionally. Of course, you have to be realistic about your goals and requirements in order to make best use of this but for me personally, it has been really good. Don't be a jerk, and it's a pretty good place to work!

    Cons

    Cons? Well, the biggest con I see is that Panduit is slow to change. Some practices here are pretty anachronistic... but this is also a pro because Panduit is aware of it and making efforts to correct these outdated practices and policies. Another con is more around the people... like I stated earlier, some people just have unrealistic ideas about what they deserve, where they should be, what they should make, what other people should be doing. All of this is something you'll find at almost any company, so it's not like this is specific to Panduit, but it is a somewhat prevalent view. This can have an effect on newer employees or employees who don't know better and are seeking advice. I'd recommend you take everything with a grain of salt because people tend to color their story with their own point of view which doesn't apply to you. Get multiple points of view and make sure you look at all sides of a story.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive change. Don't change for the sake of change, but getting more up to date will be a good thing. This is a top-to-bottom approach too, everything from time & job practices to processes and procedures can have a look. You're doing great work so far, but keep it going.
