I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

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 Management

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

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, global company that has some potential for advancement if you are in the right business unit and the right position.

    Cons

    Stagnant, slow moving bureaucracy incapable of changing at the level or speed it needs to in order to maintain market dominance. Convoluted management structure (more dotted line than solid line), too many layers.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it for more than a year. Simplify & remove complexity from your systems. Focus less on developing a mission statement and graphics for presentations and more time working on customer value added activities.
