    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture and work-life balance. Organization has a strong focus on health and wellness initiatives. Have the ability to work in many different business units and segments given the wide organization. Typically always have something new in terms of service offering, so it would be difficult to get bored. I get to touch something new almost every day which makes work more exciting.

    Cons

    This is a great company but the many acquisitions have created a complex business model which is difficult to navigate. Continued work is needed in terms of integration and simplification of the organziation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to find a way to educate on the many service offerings and find away for cross business unit collaboration.

  3. Schneider is a very big company to work for that has acquired a lot of companies over the years. Overall, they're good.

    Pros

    Great benefits, stable job, well experienced people, and lots of opportunities to move around to different industries within the company. There is always a new side of the business you can learn from.

    Cons

    Company culture is hard to define because of it's size. Like a lot of big companies, it seems hard to make quick, prompt, decisions. It's go to market strategy is convoluted because it's grown from so many different acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SIMPLIFY Processes. They are trying to do that but in big companies, this takes time. In big companies, with every action, there is a reaction to deal with.
