    Way too big and corporate. Once it went from SE owned and TAC operated to SE owned and operated it was time to leave.

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people. TAC prided itself on hiring great people. The group of people I worked with were from the original TAC organization. While TAC was SE owned when I started working there it was at least still allowed to operate independently.

    Cons

    Once SE took over operations it became big company.....all about maximizing profits and minimizing expenses. You were just another number on paper. Promotions become nonexistent and when you did get one it wasn't even enough to cover inflation over the years since your last one. The value of the people was tossed out the window by SE.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Management have families and understands that things come up for employees as well. Give flexability for family issues that arise.

    Cons

    Flat management structure. Hard to move up and find job opportunities to advance career. Don't look to promote within. Look outside company for "best" candidate. Making it hard for career growth and advancement even if you were trained for next position. Waste a lot of money on training to not promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within. You lose too many good people by hiring outside the company.
