    Pros

    Invensys was a great place to work. It had great people, great technology, and long-term employees. It is now Schneider Electric and the strength of the legacy company continues while now being part of a larger company with stronger market reputation and one that invests in innovation, as well as it's own people.

    Cons

    The company was acquired by Schneider Electric in Jan 2014 and is now SE. The company is still solid but just much bigger now.

    Advice to Management

    As the company was acquired there is no advice to give to the previous management.

    Pros

    Good and impressive management but lacked structure and relevant projects. pay was also solid. Ability to grow into full time role would have been cool.

    Good and impressive management but lacked structure and relevant projects. pay was also solid. Additionally. Place was very political.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire interns if you don't need them. A lot of time was spent sitting around. Hopefully things pick up and that way.

    I have been working at Invensys full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance and benefits. A wide variety of products and services offered is numerous market segments creates room to advance.

    Cons

    Rapid expansion through acquisition has led to some loss of control of projects. Upper management is now very involved in recovery of projects which has led to a good bit of micro management.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to find a better way to assist project manager rather than micro manage them. The micro management and overall negative attitude toward PMs and engineers by management has just increased tensions and pressure.
