    I worked at Panduit (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at Panduit full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None. This is a family run company that imposes their voting choice (Republican), their governmental beliefs with carefully choice words, and conservative practices. All illegal.

    Cons

    They've started a massive campaign to get their Glassdoor score up. Note the canned reviews littered all over this page. They were around 1.8 to 2.1 all of the last 2 to 3 years with over 900 reviews. True workin employees don't provide honest reviews of a company with resume bullet type reviews i.e. "Great company", "Great work environment", "Bright future" then lay out consistently between 3 to5 positive bullet statements every single time. Notice these little short concise 5-star reviews with glowing positive and zero Cons littered up and down Panduit's review page. They are lying through their teeth. This is an awful place to work. Employees on the floor and in the offices are on lock down. Every internet account must be reported to Panduit before Your hire date (email, twitter, Facebook, link-in, etc.). They don't tell you why but here it is. You can't talk anywhere except the bathrooms without worrying if a camera recording and security and/or HR watching and lip reading. They have internet scan ware for the word "Panduit" or any of their trademark name products so they can ease drop on your account (which I believe is illegal without a court order. A high school graduate friend I worked with on the floor told of their ease dropping capabilities. He was was communicating with his classmate in another state via the internet and told his friend he worked at Panduit and what kind of work he did. That Monday morning he was summoned to the HR and security office with threats of termination if he said anything about Panduit again. The question was ask was how did Panduit know this? How's that for a great company. That's the tip of the iceberg as to how bad, illegal, and ugly this company is. Work at Panduit at your own risk. You've been warn.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't listen and they are too corrupt, untrustworthy, shallow minded, and paranoid.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience as one will most certainly have exposure to various aspects of manufacturing industry. Company is growing and have tons of potential.

    Cons

    Lacking young talent - thus no after work activities.

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

    Pros

    Panduit invests heavily into its R&D department to ensure technical leadership in the industry and so that Panduit products always outperform the competitors. There is a lot of hands on work and different teams collaborate frequently to get the job done. The culture is such that new ideas are usually welcome too, so creativity and initiative are rewarded.

    Cons

    Panduit is just under an hour (driving) outside of downtown Chicago, without traffic. If you want to live in the city and commute it can be rough. The compensation could also be higher in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Panduit's biggest weakness is in name recognition outside of the industry I think. To attract the best new talent and biggest contracts I think a marketing campaign may be necessary.

    I have been working at Panduit full-time

    Pros

    The people at Panduit are a highly motivated, close-knit team with a passion for quality and process. The company offers a good environment in which team members can contribute in meaningful ways and develop their career goals.

    Cons

    The company has some "catch-up" to do in the marketplace. While it's committed to making the changes necessary to drive its desired results, sometimes the pace of change and lack of sufficient change management steps cause less-than-best outcomes. Nonetheless, the company has the right goals in place and is on the right track to achieve those goals.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with efforts to institutionalize the desired culture with all team members. Drive integration of business teams and functional organizations throughout the company.

    Pros

    Continually growing at a better than market pace. Gaining share from competition, earning customer preferences and remaining competitive in a difficult market

    Cons

    Sometimes this growth comes at the expense of good people that have given their entire careers to the company. The Quality of some products have suffered due to globalization

    Advice to Management

    Get back to your roots when the employee truly felt like the company's greatest asset.

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

    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.

    I worked at Panduit full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, good pay, good opportunities for training.

    Cons

    Very, very political, super-conservative, yes-man friendly. Performance is rarely recognized if not accompanied by correct political moves. Management/supervisor protection is mandatory. Stepping on toes is deadly.

    Advice to Management

    Clear the deck and bring in outside people. Welcome unique ideas and thinkers. Encourage innovation. Create much more diversity it upper management; minorities and women. Values are given air-time but not followed in practice.
