Current Employee - Regional Sales Manager

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

Pros

Good growth potential in industry and many different products to sell. If you are part of the "clique", rapid advancement potential. Compensation is at or above average, yet don't expect yearly raises. Raises are tied to "corporate performance" and in the past few years have either not happened, or have been late.

Cons

Overall management in North America is pitiful. The company has squandered vast resources to build a new platform that will be outdated by the time it's released. To pay for it, many core products have been shelved leading to little real product development.

Worse is the people management. SE shows an "I don't care" attitude like no other. I've known one employe who was fired simply because he was gay. Another, who had 20+ years with the company was fired a week after returning from disability. Anyone who questions the system and files a grievance with HR is also fired, while management carries on with a blind eye and no retribution.

Within the branches, there is very high turnover of personnel

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Huge Product basket, Good product, very much system driven, good opportunities..

    Cons

    Huge pressure, particularly in Power BU - East, sometime cruel behavior of local management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pressure will be there for all MNCs and the organizations which are growing keenly but it should be systematic and justified.

    Pros

    work culture, employee friendly policies, encouragement for women employees

    Cons

    Slow career growth, only few get promotions based on talent most of them get based on number of years of experience in the previous designation according to the new grade system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more skip level meetings required to address root level employee issues
