    I have been working at Panduit as a contractor

    Pros

    I'm impressed with the cohesiveness of this global company. It's a refreshing corporate environment with strong goals and values -- something you don't always find in the southwest suburbs.

    Cons

    Upper management can become a little bubbled in on the top floors, but it's always nice to see company execs eating with employees in the cafeteria and making themselves as accessible as they can.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make yourselves available to your employees and be as transparent as you possibly can.

    Pros

    Excellent company. Professional, dedicated to training, dedicated to excellence. Good pay package, insurance and 401K

    Cons

    My experience with management overall was excellent. However in 2008 they had a new national sales manager whom I found hard to work with. He is no longer with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good people and get out of their way.

    I have been working at Panduit as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Panduit is a global brand manufacturing good, useful products and value-added solutions. The Tinley World Headquarters is located in a beautiful LEED property which is pristinely maintained. Family friendly employer with competitive benefits. You hear of people moving around internally fairly frequently. People are friendly. A business transformation has been underway since 2014/2015 and I see positive cultural changes incrementally happening along with increased strategic focus on achieving results by the leadership team. They are building an internal office of change management to support strategic programs signaling their commitment to doing things better and differently. Panduit is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Looking at areas such as organizational change management and enterprise project management from a capability maturity model, Panduit is at the low end but making focused effort to improve. If you like to contribute to process improvement and share ideas to improve things - you may appreciate finding opportunities to contribute. If you need to walk into an environment where the capability maturity is already very high, you may find it frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep sharing the monthly financial updates. Embrace a more iterative approach to delivering enhancements and celebrate the little wins along the way because they all add up. Offer more targeted opportunities to help people really learn and understand the Panduit business operating model.

    I have been working at Panduit full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people who work here are great. Most have been here for a significant amount of time which, to me, means it's a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Company is going through a transitional/growth period and there are many things that can be construed as "up in the air". However, I think everything is moving in a positive direction.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Panduit conducts a lot of employee surveys but I'm not convinced that they always interpret them correctly.

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

    Pros

    Very large, global corporation, supporting a high growth market with a diverse and sophisticated customer base. Amazing benefits, world class work environment with really smart people!

    Cons

    There are very few if any Cons at Panduit, I can see. Having worked elsewhere for nearly 25 years, I so appreciate the environment and culture here. Panduit is transitioning from a family run to a family owned company, which may cause some long term employees anxiety as change is difficult. However the intent is to grow the business, which is uniquely positioned for success in an expanding market. I applaud management for their devotion to the Founders' principles, as they adapt to the needs of a growing business.

    Advice to Management

    Growing pains might result from the changes you are making, but continue to be bold and stay the course! New ideas and fresh thinking will energize the company.
