Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits are above the average.
Global presence.
A growing industry.

Cons

Too large.
Not much people friendliness. You are only a head count on an spreadsheet at the end of the day.
Not very good at cost control, operations efficiency.
Career path is not clear.

Advice to Management

Instead of focusing on sales numbers, please take a moment to recognize the efforts of all your plant operations and understand the pain they've been suffering by being dragged by those sales numbers without much chance to realigning themselves to be the real world class operations. It's easy to put together some sales / marketing numbers but to achieve long term sustainable competitiveness you need to build a real strong operational force by developing the real efficient process and supply chain, not just cutting head counts instead.

    I worked at Schneider Electric as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment and challenging, hands-on work. Managers communicate well and do not micromanage. People are friendly and pretty easy going, nothing too formal.

    Cons

    Sometimes very chaotic, emphasis on making decisions based on incomplete knowledge, rather than spending time gathering the required knowledge. Everything is always behind schedule.
