I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Schneider Electric has a great culture, great benefits, and serves a wide variety of energy needs. It is a great place to work if you want to be in the energy field as you can move throughout the company into different areas of energy.

Cons

Salary is below average, the many acquisitions Schneider has made haven't necessarily been smooth and it is easy to feel "trapped" within your specific division. There is room for advancement if you're proactive and search via Schneider's website but depending on your division you're only likely to go so far by your hard work.

Advice to Management

Focus more on career development and keeping employees engaged and excited about their opportunities int he future.

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people at the heart of APC are hard working and fun to work with. APC makes great products that are proven throughout the industry. It was a young and fun company for a long time.

    Cons

    Upon acquisition of APC, Schneider Electric began to systematically dismantle the benefits structure and eventually started moving of closing entire departments within the company. IT was moved to Mexico. The HR system was contracted out to India. Bonuses steadily declined. Health care contributions increased dramatically every year. Yearly layoffs are the norm. Overall, morale was steadily declining.

    Advice to Management

    Leave well enough alone. This is an extremely profitable company that spends way too much effort trying to streamline operations and cut costs.
