    Pros

    This was a local company that has very good people to work with. When Schneider Electric purchased it, it became more cost effective, and more efficient in its processes.

    Cons

    It made some errors in customer relations, and is struggling to regain market share from those lost customers. Also, focusing on cost, it laid off many more costly and experienced people for cheaper and less experienced people, which has affected it negatively.

    Pros

    They care for the planet through saving its energy consumption. They also really care about their people. All the managers I have had do a great job of supporting a healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    The US business is not doing well and they are laying off people and cutting some positions right now. Still keep checking job boards though, some are hiring still.

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities for training and professional growth within the company. It is clear they care about the employees and their professional growth. It's nice to see a company who understands the value of their employees and what it means for the company to keep their employees happy and engaged at work. There is a great, supportive ,team-like atmosphere and flexible and easy going work environment.

    Cons

    Would be nice if more than 5 days of PTO could be rolled over at the end of each year.
