    Pros

    Working at Schneider overall has been a good experience for me. I have gained much valued experience in different areas of supply Chain.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics that go on and promotions do not seem to be all that fair. There are also other challenges being on site with our customer GMCCA in Grand Blanc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more fair in hiring in promotions and reward people for hard work. Quick with all the politics and unnecessary movements.

    Pros

    Good boots on the ground exp. Opps. to learn from experience in low / operational levels.

    Cons

    Lots of talk about development and training, but little chance to gain exp in more advanced levels without having someone complain; almost ZERO actual training and corp. prof. dev.

    Okay starting pay, but LOW annual raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    May need a leadership change. No charisma. Poor communication skills, even with good decisions.

    I worked at Schneider

    Pros

    They are a very close net company and they do offer a lot of training. I did like the fact that sli was not arraid to allow training access to everyone

    Cons

    This is a very Clique type of company. Some people where over looked for promotions if you didnt hang out with the right clique. They where not fair in the FMLA process. Some people are allowed to go on leave and return to their positions but if you where not aprat of the clique than they can and will fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some fairness to employees. If you have a policy in place make sure that it is fair and that all employees are able to exercise their rights. Employees shoud not have to be apart of the in crowd or clique to get ahead at Schneider. Also you need some people to look in to the racial and gender aspects at SLI. Schneider is a very bias compoany against women and minorites.
