A good company with great people but often too large to move quickly

I worked at Schneider Electric

Pros

Industry leader, Innovative, Great employees, exceptional senior management, wide variety of products and services focused around electricity in some way shape or form. With the old brands of Square D, Telemecanique, Merlin Gerin, and the acquisitions of APC, TAC, Juno, and PELCO Schneider can effectively provide the entire infrastructure for a new facility, from electrical, security, building automation, and lighting/controls.

Cons

Through the last decade Schneider Electric in the U.S. was "right sized" many times, stretching their workforce thinner and thinner. The company in many locations is doing multiple times the amount of business than they were ten years ago, with half or even a fourth of the staff they had 10 years ago. The overall morale of the employees has suffered and great talent has been lost to better opportunities.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric

    Pros

    Living in Costa Mesa is wonderful and the management team knows that you want to have time to enjoy the weather and the beaches. The hours are standard for a sales position, a little long and very involved, but they are worth it.

    Cons

    A lot of time spent on the phone instead of in front of customers, but the work place is very relaxed and the people are great so it makes the day go by fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees more vacation time during the their first year so that they can have more time enjoying their youth!
