Pros

Working with Schneider Electric is certainly an experience! A French international company is very international and less French, while being obsessed with a few things: customers, energy efficiency and their people. Management and processes serve the above and in general it is an honest company both inwards and outwards. I particularly appreciate the simpleness of communication in all levels and the flexibility and easiness to move around positions, countries, organisations - always a running stone that never gets grass on it! The company really cares for the development of their employees and executive managers are aware of the actuall business and not demigods.

Cons

Life is stressed in SE as processes are complex and a lot of them, almost for anything! The organization is overmuch too lean, so most managers are overburdened by many different tasks. People are stressed and some escape to other companies with better pay and living balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Processes can be simpler and as lean as the organization can support them. Care for people does not always mean continues development, but also quality of life. As energy must be saved so people's lves should have more fun and joy in them!

    Top management have the right strategy, local management more interested in turf guarding.

    Pros

    The strategy piece of Schneider Electric works well. Great people work there.

    Cons

    At the high level the strategy appears to be working, but at the lower level the country management did no drive the tope level strategy. Career progressions works well but then usually stalls. Short terms incentive programs drive the business to make curious decisions at times. Too many managers all wanting to show they are driving the strategy, resulting in conflicting goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to work on their extended supply chain in order to keep the customer satisfaction levels high. Regional management and the functional management need to re enforce the transformation the company is going through.

    Salaries do not reflect market standards.
    Have to be with the company a long time before being promoted.
    A lot of older managment, younger employees are not as highly promoted.
