I have been working at Legrand

Pros

Challenging Projects
Great Benefits
Market Leader
Positioned for Growth.
Overall Legrand provides an opportunity to work with great people, is a friendly place to work.

Cons

Like many companies, each person has a lot on their plates. There is never an opportunity to be bored at work. Not necessarily a bad thing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to communicate on goals and to keep the focus on employee development and market growth. The quarterly meetings are very beneficial

    Pros

    Entreprise mondiale très profitable (présente dans 70 pays, 40% des revenus totaux des nouvelles économies)

    Peut offrir une carrière sur toute une vie pour ceux dont l'ADN correspond à l'entreprise

    Very profitable and global company (presence in 70 countries, 40% of total revenues in the new economies)
    Can offer a long-life career for those who fit the DNA of the company

    Cons

    La direction autocratique qui gêne la diversité des esprits et les actions mène à des jeux politiques inefficaces

    Les longues heures de travail (7h du matin à 10h du soir) sont obligatoires et une nécessité à cause de réunions interminable et inefficaces (style de gestion dépassé, encore dirigé par un hiérarchie stricte plutôt que par des relations collaboratives, ce qui fait obstacle à la contribution de chaque individuel - étrangement Français du siècle passé!)

    Partout des managers sous-qualifiés en conséquence de peu de formation : ancienneté privilégiée par rapport aux compétences - la patience est plus récompensée que le talent

    Autocratic management that hampers diversity in minds and actions and leads to inefficient politic games
    Showcasing long working hours (7am-10pm) is a must and a necessity considering endless and inefficient meetings (old-fashioned management style, still ruled by strict hierarchy rather than collaborative relationships, thus impeding the contribution of each individual - awkwardly French from the past century!)
    Overall low qualified managers as a consequence of a low training policy: seniority privileged over skills - patience will be rewarded more than talent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Alignez la direction avec la communication externe : en bref, faites ce que vous dites, au-delà des attentes financières et gare au fossé !

    Soyez innovant plutôt que conservateur : une innovation par étapes ne suffira pas dans un monde qui change rapidem

    Align management with external communication: in brief, walk the talk, beyond financial expectations and mind the gap!
    Be innovative rather than conservative: incremental innovation will not suffice in a fast-changing world and the company is definitely not ready for disruptive innovation, both in terms of technologies and business models. The recent acquisition of Nest by Google has been disparaged by the CEO, who claimed no impact on the present business model.
    Lean does not mean mean: as for example, trainings are not just another expense.

    Ils devraient placer plus d'importance sur les règles des ressources humaines et motiver les employés à être performants
