    I worked at Invensys (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun place to work with interesting folks and products. I learned much from the NRC policies and procedures to broaden my background.

    Cons

    A bit too far from home with no easy access for me. Far too few industrial printers at the facility. Doc Control is still paper intensive and having to wait on line slowed processes.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please get your team more printers. I know I had to work early, late and weekends specifically for printing archive documents.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Almost everything was great until the company got acquired by Schneider Electric. The company has great benefits and great people to work with. Good job opportunities and room for growth.

    Cons

    The software division has leadership problems. Too many issues with new software releases. The company operates in silos that don't communicate with each other. Only a few software products are "favorites" and get all the funding. Other products could be great if management would invest the proper resources. The bonus structure is dependent on overall company performance, which means you probably won't get much of a bonus. With the acquisition by Schneider Electric there is no telling where this will go.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your software in America where there is a lot of real talented people. Sending your development offshore has produced a substandard product.

    Pros

    This company has a ton of great perks, great down-to-earth people, and management is top notch.

    Cons

    The majority of the company is 50+ years. This is a pro in some regards, however things have been done the same way for decades in some instances and the company could certainly use some youth in the office. Also, with the recent acquisition by Schneider Electric, hopefully things don't get 'shaken up' in an unfavorable way.

    Advice to Management

    With baby boomers headed out the door, it's an obvious choice to keep hiring bright young talent to take this company into the next generation.
