    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Schneider Electric has defined what are the values it is built with and make sure that everybody is aligned with it from selection to yearly performance evaluation.
    Schneider Electric cares about its customers and employees & is permanently surveying their opinions and getting as much feedback as possible to improve.
    The company enables mobility for a large part of the employees in all functions and regions. those mobility can be local, international and to different type of functions

    Cons

    The company comes from a large numbers of acquisitions and sometimes it takes some good thinking to understand the organization chart of all divisions and functions. However, the management is reviewing this organization in order to simplify it and make it more effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a higher focus on talent retention especially young potential

    Pros

    Very diverse company with lots of opportunities if you seek them out. Vision of the company is exciting and enabling.

    Cons

    Big company can be hard to network/navigate. Some processes and policies seem outdated (for isntance, IE 7.0 is still the standard web-browser). Politics can get in the way of productivity, like in most big companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in younger and more diverse workforce, and find more ways to develop middle management into new leaders.
