    Pros

    This was a local company that has very good people to work with. When Schneider Electric purchased it, it became more cost effective, and more efficient in its processes.

    Cons

    It made some errors in customer relations, and is struggling to regain market share from those lost customers. Also, focusing on cost, it laid off many more costly and experienced people for cheaper and less experienced people, which has affected it negatively.

    Pros

    They care for the planet through saving its energy consumption. They also really care about their people. All the managers I have had do a great job of supporting a healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    The US business is not doing well and they are laying off people and cutting some positions right now. Still keep checking job boards though, some are hiring still.

    Flexible hours and bosses are very friendly, just have to find the right sector.

    Tend to get stuck in a role, company wants improvement with all talk and no action, lots of inefficiencies in everyday work.

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits - Challenging Projects at the Front Edge.

    Cons

    Work-Life Balance at my branch was zero. High Turnover was the first of many signs that employee satisfaction wasn't considered a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy Employees are productive and loyal employees. Try some training on this. A lot of time wasted on interviewing for all those positions that are constantly being vacated by dissatisfied employees could be saved, along with some otherwise decent employees.
