    I have been working at Panduit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, free coffee and from time to time free muffins

    Cons

    The plant Management doesn't care about the employees, there is no support from human resources or anyone. Your complains ideas and suggestions will be ignored. The treatment to the employees is very selective if you do not have a friend or relative in a higher position YOU ARE OUT OF LUCK.

    Advice to Management

    To the DeKalb management only: If you are wearing earplugs - please remove them. and please stop repeating the same "we are all equal" story you have being saying over and over we are SICK and TIRED of it. We no longer believe on you, we do not trust you.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay for the fairly relaxed environment, flex time, average vacation accrual. 401K. Never force overtime. Fairly easy to move between shifts because of the high turnover rate.

    Cons

    After some time almost everyone falls into this pit of hating your job. The warehouse does not have an upbeat environment/culture in any way shape or form. Many times you will ask your foreman a question and they will answer you in a condescending manner or give you the answer that will just get you out of your office, not fix the problem, it gets frustrating,

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

    Pros

    Very transparent management for even low level team members.

    Cons

    Shift changes or time off requests can sometimes be unpredictable.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have a more fleshed out internship/hire-within program. Panduit has always done very well hiring from within, but they could benefit from more of a tiered approach vs. "Hey we tend to hire from within… you should try to apply!"

    I have been working at Panduit part-time

    Pros

    At Panduit you get roughly 2 weeks vacation per year to start. 5 paid sick days and good health benefits. Overall very friendly atmosphere to work and great pay.

    Cons

    nature of work is rather boring and monotonous, depending on the shift, management tends to talk down to the employees. Otherwise overall there is not much that can be said about this company on the negative side.

    Pros

    The Pay is pretty good

    Cons

    most of management does not know what goes on in warehouse,
    Management doesnt care about anyone but themselves,
    a person to holds a production rate of 190% is treated no better than someone who holds a rate of 100% and receives the same raise.
    all promotions are given by senority, not experience. 180 employees, 11 2nd and 3rd level positions.

    Advice to Management

    none because they wouldnt listen.

    Pros

    co-workers are about the only thing that make it worth coming to work everyday.
    not a bad 401k package( as long as they don't take it away again)

    Cons

    management does what they want, when they want, for who they want.
     each shift does thing differently, each foreman does thing differently, but managenent
    wants things to be the same. there is no communcation between foreman and employees.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your people, i mean really listen!! the survey you have out right now does nothing to let you know how your employees really feel!!

    Pros

    The only good thing about Panduit is some of the people that work there - NOT upper management! Over 15 years with this company, and I can whole heartedly say this place is NOT the place I started. When 'daddy' Caveney ran it, a person was a person. Not true anymore, and getting worse by the day...

    Cons

    Every benefit we used to have has been taken away, or drastically cut so that they might as well have taken all of it. Hey guys, what happened to the statement "Panduit doesn't place blame" that's in the training material???? Thats all they do is look to blame someone for something. Moral is so low. Upper management only wants you to work faster, harder, meet that next goal... For what?? Throughout this whole economic crysis, Panduit has GROWN as a conpany - yet they have taken advantage of the situation by stripping its employees of their benefits. They even took away our EARNED vacation time, and are now making us re-earn it. What's that old saying about getting blood out of turnip??? Yet they turn around and spend millions upon millions on a new corp. headquarters - I don't get it. Its sad to say I dread coming into work every day. Its even worse to know its only getting worse as those days go by.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up - stop overthinking. Fix problems, stop creating more! Treat people like they matter - isn't that how YOU expect to be treated? Make rules that apply to everyone. Be human enough to know that there ARE situations that come up in people's lives that exceptions SHOULD be made. You catch more bees with honey - doesn't it stand to reason that if you create good working conditions, you'd get more work out of your workers???
