    I worked at Pelco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people from the original Pelco company. The original Pelco management understood the video security industry, and the video security and surveillance customer. Excellent customer service and support.

    Cons

    After Schneider Electric acquired Pelco, nothing was ever the same. A lot of good employees left, SE did not understand the video security market, nor how to leverage Pelco even within its own company.

    Advice to Management

    At this point, not much can be said. Pelco continues to shrink. SE continues to cut budgets. Layoffs continue. Sad to watch the erosion of what was once a really good company.

    Great coworkers, nice campus and flexible schedule

    company leadership has no clue how to make a good business decision. its only a matter of time before pelco doesn't exist. Too many "me too" products and too many odm/oem products...nothing to differentiate pelco from competitors.

    I have been working at Pelco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours if needed Bonus structure Health, Dental and Vision coverage Retirement Plan On campus work out room On campus cafeteria Some departments have a night shift option for work hours

    Cons

    The company currently has bi annual layoffs that affect employees campus wide. One mandatory furlough week a year that will impact your vacation hours. US manufacturing is being pushed overseas or is being made by a third party and then rebranded.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to focus on core products made to the standards of quality that made Pelco known as a worldwide expert in security. Third party manufacturers that are low bidders will always lead to quality issues and a bad mark on the brand name.
