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

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

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

    Pros

    Benefits offering is good overall. Lower level employees pay too low

    Cons

    Great benefit offerings with the company paying most of the cost...still in 2014 too many layoffs still happening. Almost the entire HR team was let go or bailed out....totally a bad sign.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lack of pride and employee engagement continues in 2014 - go back to basics...layoffs of employees with 15-20 years service just before Christmas is so sad

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Soft skill trainings to improve personal development were not too many when I was there.
    Benefits were good and above average in the market, including full health insurance coverage for family (husband / wife and children), including government social insurance for workers.
    Many data are collected and compiled from many business activities to support sales and marketing plans.

    Cons

    There are so many reports to be prepared. There are so many internal meetings between departments.
    Less work-life balance due to high work pressure. In some cases and areas, there were lack of good leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal development trainings should be improved and more added, such as team work building, sales skill training, service excellence. Family gathering can be arranged annually to improve personal relationship of employees in large organization.
