    I have been working at Schneider Electric (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Schneider Electric has provided me with a comfortable working conditions, great opportunities for team work and professional growth, and short project length.

    Cons

    I am currently only contracted employee, so I receive no corporate or health benefits through Schneider. Sometimes work can become tedious, but otherwise there are very few things to complain about.

    I worked at Schneider Electric

    Pros

    Great atmosphere at the Alpharetta location, good opportunities, clear organization at the local level.

    Cons

    Typical big corporation burocracy, bigger decisions get mired in a chain of approvals, and the company is constantly integrating the latest acquisition.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been provided a tremendous opportunity to grow and develop as an employee. I was provided excellent training and tuition assistance to complete my undergraduate degree.

    Cons

    Its big and getting bigger. The company is now less about the people than it was years ago. More and more, due to the growth and need for philosophy changes, executive positions are filled by external hires rather than "home grown" talent. Maybe good / maybe bad but a fact that leaves some with a poor impression.

    I worked at Schneider Electric

    Pros

    Company gives employees opportunities to grow. Schneider Electric truly prioritizes its employees.

    Cons

    As company continues to evolve, sometimes it lacks consistent structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to a strategy for company growth; I question whether such a large company should consistently change the way in which it functions at a corporate level.
