What Employees Say
I worked at Panduit full-time for more than 8 years
Excellent strategy, product development initiatives, high-level CISCO/Rockwell partnerships, and messaging to customers. They hire talented people. The compensation is in line with the industry.... If you do get laid off they offer you something respectable.
Can't execute what they want to do. The internal workings of the company are a nightmare since the talented people they hire are not empowered to take the necessary steps to execute the plan. Many... people complaining they can't do what it takes to get the job done... and close business. People agreeing on what needs to be changed but not being allowed to make the change. Even if you don't agree with the above, it's just not working. "Surprise" layoffs ever 2 years since 2009. They bought two new companies in the last three years buy hardly sell their products. It's a privately held company passed from father to son but the last generation to run the company has retired or is close to retirement age so an eventual sale and further restructuring are inevitable. This is a family run company past it's prime. CEO puts you to sleep when he talks and has lost touch with what's happening inside the company.
Advice to Management
It's time for the owners and CEO to pass the torch. You had a good run to make something out of nothing (and that in itself is something to be proud of) but now you seem lost at how to execute what... you are planning. Advice to newcomers: the initial pitch sounds so exciting you can't wait to get started. Then after a few years you realize how hard it is to deliver what you promised to the customer. Then you either take a "survivor" mentality, leave, or get laid off. None of these are good long term options.
