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

    Pros

    Good pay based on experience, good overall benefits package, multiple locations and possible roles.

    Cons

    My first few years in management with SNBC were great. I worked on a great team, under a superb leader and mentor, and was well respected for my contribution to the team. Then I moved under different leadership to another location and suddenly my future was threatened. I was subject to daily intimidation tactics, and bait and switch expectations. Corp leadership refused to acknowledge the evidence of this failed leader’s threatening ways and just turned their backs. They allowed the team to lose multiple good leaders back to back (2010 through 2012) and never once cared to intercede, support the team, and stop the turnover of years of skills, talent, and results-backed management experience.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out of the frozen tundra sometimes. If you have associates with years of service who suddenly become issues, look at the ‘big picture’ for reasons. If the associate was effective for years and now suddenly there are issues, maybe the leader reporting the issues is not the right one for this individual/team? Admit when you've made a mistake (i.e., leadership choice for a team). Then correct that mistake in a respectful and timely manner before you lose the synergy of a great team. Be open to suggestions by associates at every level. Listen to your team AND your conscience, not just your business acumen.
