    Pros

    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

    Agility isn’t strong, but is improving. Communication could be better.

    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free Ice
    Easy work on the off shifts (no supervision)

    Cons

    What do you call a company who gets a tax break in 1998 promising to hire DeKalb residents and NIU college students and years later tries to replace full time employees with temps employees not from the area?
    What do you call a company that moves the management team from Tinley Park to DeKalb and then gets rid of all of them by spreading lies and trying to ruin their reputations just because they are old and make too much money?
    What do you call a company that gets rid of their HR department and then treats people unethically?
    What do you call a company that has removed every Safety improvement in the name of being more efficient?
    I call it a workforce starving for a Union.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately you can’t turn back time. But, you can rid yourself of the mistake of replacing your current management team with humans, not people who sold their soul to a powerful midget and a bunch of others who will work for 40 percent of what former management worked for.

    I worked at Panduit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employees able to exist long term and collect paychecks if they avoid responsibilities.

    Strategy bound to change every 12 months resulting in re-organization and new targets before accountability sets in.

    New "employee" programs implemented annually to keep leadership team thinking that they are investing in their personnel.

    Cons

    An exercise in attrition. Anyone with knowledge or passion leaves out of frustration.

    US Manufacturing and Warehousing managed by autocrat through fear, bullying, and intimidation tactics.

    Increasing revenue while decreasing profits through lack of focus, increased complexity.

    Executive leadership team "going back to school" for Strategy training.

    Advice to Management

    Time to dust off the Bain report from a few years ago and execute. Need to stop thinking you are smarter than the recommendations made using market intelligence and data.
