    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 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.

    Pros

    Overall a good company to work for and moving in the right direction. Restructuring their business strategy have created a culture of accountability, which it needed

    Too many cooks in the kitchen and many upper management conflicts that need to be resolved. Moving too fast as a company for where they would like to be in 5 years

    I worked at Panduit (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The building is nice

    Cons

    The leadership team has no interpersonal skills. They seem to be frightened of people.
    The HR team is a disaster and highly incompetent
    The company lacks any innovation spirit
    Safety in their manufacturing plants is really not a priority

    Advice to Management

    Start questioning the HR leadership team : why is there so much turn over in the HR team? Maybe Managing people like in the 70s is not the most appropriate anymore.

    Pros

    Nice building, cool cafeteria, opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    EXTREMELY micro-managed. Like, monitor how much time you are taking on your bathroom break, mico-managed. They are always pulling you into a room to review your recorded phone calls. "You need to say MAY I", etc. Would genuinely get nervous pulling into work every morning. CEO sent out random email about not liking Obama? It was weird.....

    Pros

    Great leadership.

    Good benefits and work/life balance is above average.

    Full cafeteria, like I was back in College!

    Cons

    Low pay.

    I have a college degree and 6 years professional work experience but make less then a college graduate would coming into their first job.

    Advice to Management

    I would say pay your employees better but no one cares.
