    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Terrific benefits, very supportive people to work with. The company is very good about providing educational opportunities for you, you just have to take advantage of them

    Cons

    Constant changes and acquisitions by the company. Sometimes its difficult to understand what is going on, who is responsible for what and the org chart is in constant flux. if you are a company who is bought out by SE beware - they will say they bought you because they want things to operate just like they always have but eventually the SE corporate monster will take over

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the administrative overhead and let managers focus on serving the customer

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

    Pros

    Country leadership is top notch, training and on-boarding is outstanding, global focus and broad product lines.

    Cons

    Some region/market line leadership is poor, acquisition focus (not innovating) and not well integrated, great talent gets lost behind hazy objectives and goals.

    Advice to Management

    This is really a good company but its time to up the R&D because you have the talent already aboard (find them) and the war chest is in place. Rout out the bully blowhard area managers and their lapdogs. Wont be hard - just look for the Generals shooting their troops. Bene's and perks are world class and SE can attract and hold the best - but they seem to drift. Find them, and link the to a development that will knock the industry socks off.
