    Pros

    As a Product Manager, you are the product owner. You are responsible for the growth of the product. You are surrounded with knowledgeable resources that can guide you along the way.

    Cons

    There are a lot of procedures in place, but on a positive note the company is working on improving this.

    Pros

    Good Salad Bar and Bread Sticks

    Cons

    Racist place to work, at one occasion personally heard the person responsible for cleaning the floor in the cafeteria " BOY". The person is you guessed correctly is an African heritage and he is my friend.

    Advice to Management

    If you are lost in a wilderness a map is of no value, you need a compass. A compass which always points to the NORTH. A company which is not principle centered is always lost. By having meaningless managerial training and hoping for better bottom up, and doubling up the effort is still lost.

    I have been working at Panduit full-time

    Pros

    Free parking, clean work environment, close to I-80 so convenient for folks in Indiana too, flex-time which is great for kids doctor appointments.

    Cons

    Eliminating so many jobs in across many departments even though economy continues to improve. These are not layoffs but job eliminations and a lot of those that were walked out took a lot of valuable industry, company, and product knowledge with them (many were older and likely more expensive which makes one wonder of the company is getting ready to be sold). Culture of fear (of being the next person to be eliminated) is the reality, despite claims of open communication and respect. If you are unlucky enough to be ruled by one of the many poor managers (or Directors or VPs that have multiplied in recent years) your days can range from barely tolerable to worse.

    Advice to Management

    I gave my ideas, suggestions, advice many times on areas that Panduit could and should improve in; mostly it was ignored but a couple gems I presented were used by management and I was given no credit. Since Panduit would not accept my advice, I offer this to any job seekers---look elsewhere.

    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

    Overtime was there if in need of extra money, excessive overtime is not a sign of a good company

    Cons

    Lack of appreciation, high expectations, way too high, managers lack of knowledge, selfishness, manager arrogance, snobby, brutal way of treating employees no one there is happy trust me, whip style management

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate workers, downsize managers, you only need one, not a army of overpaid high priced managers, stop cracking the whip, a happy employee is a productive employee, y'all gon learn! After your managers fail to adequately do what employees do. Appreciate those willing to give up their lifestyle to ensure Panduit's success!
