Numerous opportunities in a company that shares family values

Program Manager (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN

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

ProsSchneider is big on moving people around, if that is what they want. There are numerous opportunities in the company, both domestic and international. Schneider promotes working at home, career growth and treats their employees as valueable assets.

ConsLike most large companies, process and politics can sometimes be a challenge but management allows debate and counter points of view.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to listen to your employees, maintain your family/work life balance policy and continue to promote from within when possible
