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

Pros

Salary was great flexible schedule

Cons

Old school management employees work not judged by performance but if you were liked period. No real guidance management only concerned about their jobs. No structure to many leaders who are out of touch with new staff. The older management team was afraid of change and hindered it at every turn. No real direction from HQ just non aligned group of companies running in Silos. Systems outdated implementation plans move with each newly hired VP very unorganized. Engineering systems 20 years behind technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in new ideas and a strong leader who can manage global companies. This organization will lose if it doesn't quickly get up to speed on systems. Its several years behind on a real global connectivity among companies under the umbrella of Schneider Electric.

    Great when it was the Square D Company but over time became less desirable.

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is OK, people are great.

    Cons

    Management is only after their next bonus at the cost and on the backs of the workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the people, not your bonuses.

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent family-life balance. Co-workers are awesome. Cafeteria is excellent.

    Cons

    HR is completely incompetent. Way too much nepotism in this company. Compensation and benefits used to be excellent (when they were APC), now they are substandard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The HR department needs a complete overhaul. In nearly 10 years, I have yet to come across anyone in that department who could answer a simple question correctly.
