Pros

Schneider Electric is strong when it comes to a work-life balance. The average employee ---even administrative assistants --- are given laptops. This allows everyone to work from home IF NECESSARY. While I witnessed many taking advantage of this benefit, I only witnessed one ro two folks abuse it.

I don't know if it was the company, or the supervisor...but we had trust and respect that is hard to beat in both directions.

Cons

Very clicky! If you don't have the right boss, you won't stay employed longer than 12 months.

Advice to Management

Create career path for admins....promote them to other positions from within. Encourage job sharing among admins, to break down the clicks

    Pros

    The work place has great atmosphere in terms of friendliness and openness. We are the world largest video security company, currently having 60% market share in the United States.

    Cons

    The headquarter is located in Clovis, Central California. There is not so many activities going on in that area compared to San Francisco or LA.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should look at their business, see what is working and what is not although they are doing quite good job saving the company in this bad economy.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Focus on revenues creates healthy company - Aquisition of good companies should help overall growth - Broad product offering - Ethical company

    Cons

    Just a number in a very large machine - Aquired companies are being forced to comply with a very different culture that is creating immense tension and reducing morale.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful which sr. managers you allow to lead the various divisions. Some have only their ego and self interests in mind.
