    Pros

    Lot of opportunities for learning, All processes are in depth compared to other competitors of same segment. Result oriented and driven, Management goals are very clear and financially very strong, Almost all functions are global functions and globally aligned to ultimate aim of company. Very good company for starters.

    Cons

    Employees are treated like workers, HR's are puppets of management, Job security is very very less in acquired companies of schneider. Insecure feeling always, Importance is only for revenue not for employees, Attrition rate is too high. Admin & transportation facility is very very bad. Any escalation they will ask employee to go out of company,Appraisal system is too bad. False promises are more.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are pillars of company. Respect them and treat them properly, Improve appraisal system, Manager are not ultimate person to decide future of employee.
