    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    International exposure for some job functions; constant changes in direction enable exposure to many job roles; if you're smart, you'll use your experience here to find a better job at a better company

    Cons

    Job openings often aren't even posted -- they are allocated to "chosen ones." French culture means egregious (bad) behavior that wouldn't stand up to American labor laws. Lower than average pay. Much of the work force is comprised of people who have never worked anywhere else so there are a lot of "B" players. Bad managers are not fired for years -- simply passed from job to job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and clean house. Promote the people who are "A" players and lose the favoritism for those who politic for the next job role. Lose the managers who contribute nothing.
