    Pros

    A large company with many business units and acquisitions which allows for advancement

    Cons

    You have to be willing to relocate for advancement unless you are already in one of the major business hubs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The constant organizational changes often stunt business growth.

    Pros

    The company has a great strategic growth model and leadership are always watching mega trends to ensure that Schneider stays relevant and aligned with customers needs. Lots of cross business opportunities and growth potential and good competitive salary. Also, great work life balance!

    Cons

    Growth and company acquisition can make processes a little frustrating. Also need more focus on country process and less global process as it hinders business with customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your customers and your employers and you will continue to be a leader!

    I have been working at Schneider Electric

    Pros

    Company is very large so I never feel pigeon-holed...I'm able to switch around every couple years so I can stay challenged.

    Cons

    Like any large manufacturing company, there are still some baby boomers around who want to do things "the way we've always done it". My experience is however, that attitude is on the decline and we're doing a great job of getting in new, fresh talent who are always looking to improve.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    SE has a good problem-space in which to work, and enough challenges to keep things interesting. Beyond the day-to-day, there are plenty of initiatives one can get involved with to broaden one's scope, learn something new, or strengthen relationships and friendships in the work-community.

    Cons

    Strict facilities management can make the inside of the building seem drab and corporate IT is still changing and trying to figure out how best to service the massive number of SE employees.

    Pros

    Organizational Quality, advancement opportunities, global company

    Cons

    Not enough people running large industrial facilities, stretching current footprint too thin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closer into productivity directly affected by weak scrap, rework, pushing orders in, delaying orders due to poor GSA work, etc.
