    Pros

    The company has a great strategic growth model and leadership are always watching mega trends to ensure that Schneider stays relevant and aligned with customers needs. Lots of cross business opportunities and growth potential and good competitive salary. Also, great work life balance!

    Cons

    Growth and company acquisition can make processes a little frustrating. Also need more focus on country process and less global process as it hinders business with customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your customers and your employers and you will continue to be a leader!

    I have been working at Schneider Electric

    Pros

    Company is very large so I never feel pigeon-holed...I'm able to switch around every couple years so I can stay challenged.

    Cons

    Like any large manufacturing company, there are still some baby boomers around who want to do things "the way we've always done it". My experience is however, that attitude is on the decline and we're doing a great job of getting in new, fresh talent who are always looking to improve.
