Current Employee - Project Manager in Nashville, TN

I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Right balance between work and life
Benefits are very competitive
Good diversity of gender, race and cultures
A lot of opportunities for career development

Cons

A lot of burecratic process that do not let you go faster. Process are constantly changing that people never learn how to use them. Once you get them , they change!! Leadership positions are very scarce. A lot of resource managers with no technical or product experience. They are not very helpful. They can become another roadblock.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to develop their managers also in the technical aspect of the function. Having only resources managers do not create a good work culture as they never take responsibilty of the issues their people have on the day to day work.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH

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

    Pros

    Benefits - medical, dental, 401K and vision. Co-workers outside of management are very nice to work with.

    Cons

    Overly micro-managed for no valid reason. system support/ IT is poor at best. You can never count on the systems to be up and running. The micro management is past the point of ridiculous and redundant. Management doesn't understand the workings of a shop environment and what it takes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people do what they are skilled at not doing endless reports for no valid reason. Employees should be working on customer satisfaction not managers reports. Learn some of the jobs you are micromanaging.
