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

Pros

Great medical benefits. Participate in growth markets

Cons

Poor management in buildings business. Delayed compensation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to review management competency at all levels. If video security market is growing by 20% per yea rfor past 5 years and Schneider sales are flat, something must be wrong.

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

    Pros

    Schneider is committed to growth and development of their people. Training and professional development are readily available. Career opportunity is ripe, due to their aging employee demographic.

    Cons

    The company became highly bureaucratic over the past 4-5 years. There are myriads of approval processes which add no value and all run back to France. Being a leader in that organization became more and more difficult, to the point that I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having people who don't understand a business review every decision in a business wastes time, money, and costs you customers. You train and develop people well. Put motivated, capable leaders in place and let them do their jobs.

    You have far too many highly-paid people in "staff" roles with little or no accountability and too many resources. Your business leaders (general management, sales, & operations) are starved for resources, burdened with bureaucracy, and overworked.
