    Pros

    Good for those with no work experience and want to get global experience
    Nobody checks on your performance as long as you keep a healthy network who supports you
    Bonus is generous as your individual performance doesn't matter

    Cons

    Experience and expertise is not required in this company
    Politics is influenced by French culture as majority of them are at the top
    Practice stealth firing as they don't wont disclose when you lose your job and the reasons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck with your organisation

    I worked at Schneider Electric

    Pros

    Might be a good for a fresh graduate. Worth to get in but stay not more than 1-1.5 years

    Cons

    No benefit package other than just mere salary. Unpaid overtimes and working on public holidays. No personal development programs. Salary is based on years you stayed rather than responsibility you take or quality of your work.

    Pros

    Nice people. Outside of the branch there are tremendous resources.

    Cons

    Chaos. Poor customer support. No sales support. Sales expected to perform operations...commission-based salary without the ability to earn a decent commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the job at hand, not just how you can look good and make others look bad.

    the company ripped everyone off for two days pay during the transition from invensys to schneider and they refuse to correct it. We have also losT benefits.

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Room to move around if you're in sales or are an engineer. A reasonably well-known firm, so there's a bit of name recognition to put on the resume.

    Cons

    For back-office staff (Fin, IT) there isn't much in the way of growth potential, and the compensation is poor. I was there about a year, after which point, I sort of had it with feeling like a bit of a second class citizen, since we provided non sales or engineering services.
