Strengths coupled with many internal challenges
Web Content Manager (Former Employee) –  Tinley Park, IL6 November 2016
Still make a lot of great, high quality products, albeit increasingly offshore, strong engineering and research. Many great co-workers that struggle under poor and ever-changing management and directives. Company aspiring to a culture of "no silos" and "earn trust" but has a long way to go in executing on both.
Pros
Clean work environment, free parking, still offer healthcare insurance, 401k
Cons
Poor communication, far suburban location with no public transportation within walking distance

Be Cautious
EDI Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Tinley Park, IL21 September 2016
Management should include management skilss and people skills and shouldn't be based on seniority. Many have been there for 20-40 years and lack the knowledge of how things work outside of the company.

Some of the people are very kind and helpful. There is definite effort to change the culture and environment.

Great People Who Create a Great Company
Trade Show Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Tinley Park, IL12 May 2016
A typical day at work consists of daily interactions with great team players and a company belief that we will succeed.
I have learned that you can advance and become more knowledgeable through an open dialogue.
Management is a very straight forward and open team. They relay top level initiatives in a very organized and honest manner.
Coworkers at Panduit are some of the most honest and willing to work as a team as I have seen before.
The hardest part of the job is the organization of the business units for trade shows they would like to attend. This part of the job is also manageable through great organizing and open dialogue.
The most enjoyable part of this job is the versatility and the wide array of different tasks that are to be done every day.
Pros
Great insurance and great advancement training.
Cons
NA

It was a great place to work when I first started
Warehouse Tech (Former Employee) –  DeKalb, IL1 March 2016
Great place to work when I first started but the last 2 years it has gone down hill drastically. New management is extremely inexperienced and untrustworthy. The benefits have been cut a lot.

Fun place to work at, awesome team work, great location.
EMEA SALES SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Guadalajara, Mexico14 February 2016
This job was very enjoyable. I would start at five in the morning and finish at one in the afternoon, so I had time to workout, or have a second job. It made my computer skills better, it was nice being part of a fun team, my customer service abilities increased, and I made several friends. I also took leadership in some of the projects increasing my communication skills in different levels of the company. The hardest part of the job probably was, waking up at four in the morning, but you get used it pretty quick. The most enjoyable part was that the company is easy going and my teammates were amazing, friendly and we all helped each other out.

Pros
great work hours
Cons
no job promotions

Kind of OK organization
System Architect (Former Employee) –  Tinley Park23 September 2015
Good organization for work/life balance perspective.
However, found management is struggling to steer to the right direction. May be due to some of the culture that they married to.
Can move forward, need very strong and focused management and
an appropriate organization structure and methodology.

Panduit Summary
Manager of Global Technical Support (Former Employee) –  Tinley Park, IL12 August 2015
Panduit is a world wide leader and provider of Network hardware components and Software Products for the Enterprise, Data Center and Industrial automation arenas.

Managed the Global Technical Support team for the Intelligent Management Systems (IMS) Worldwide.

Review outstanding critical customer issues. Provide detailed reports to the Software and Hardware groups for Software Bugs and Firmware issues. Managed Change Management process and developed Process Workflows. Supported the Professional Services Implementation Teams with critical issues related to installations, configurations and problems at customer locations around the world.

Co-workers were very dedicated to their roles and responsibilities.

The hardest part of the job was trying to make sure 24/7/365 support was available with a very small team of Engineers. Downsizing and Cutbacks reduced available personnel to perform the duties of the Technical Support Team.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I interfaced with on a daily basis. Customers and internal teams were very flexible and great team players to get the job done.
Pros
Good Pay and Benefits
Cons
No work/life balance. Expectation to to work on average 55 hours a week was not healthy for workers
