    Pros

    SE Brisbane office:
    Work life balance
    SE takes care of employees
    Provide Employee Training
    Career Development

    Cons

    Worked in SE for 4 years, depends on which department you work in. First 2 years at SE was fantastic. Moved to Projects and Services team. where some engineers have been working the same team for 10 to 15 years. Constantly criticize new team members work, does not like new ideas and totally uncooperative. Manager supports senior engineer behavior, which has caused several new team members to move on or quit jobs.

    I had very good experience in one team and very bad experience due to few people, does not mean that SE is bad, thus the rating is high. My rating for second team in 2 stars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SE is a great company. Please please keep an eye on managers with no interpersonal skills and move them to other roles, in what they are good at. Great leaders do not tolerate bad behavior, even though employee is smart and high performing employee. Great leaders throw the bad apples away and build better working culture

    Pros

    Schneider is big on moving people around, if that is what they want. There are numerous opportunities in the company, both domestic and international. Schneider promotes working at home, career growth and treats their employees as valueable assets.

    Cons

    Like most large companies, process and politics can sometimes be a challenge but management allows debate and counter points of view.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your employees, maintain your family/work life balance policy and continue to promote from within when possible
