    I have been working at Legrand full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get the job. Get at least 40 hours weekly and almost always have overtime options

    Cons

    Job wouldnt be so bad if the managers were better or if they cared about your personal life. Coworkers are drama filled.

    Advice to Management

    Care about employees and the turnover rate wouldn't be so high.

    I have been working at Legrand full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is not good place to work with. You can not make any progress in professional experience and management teams are so bad. None of them are very responsible for the company future and no team work.

    Cons

    Middle level managers are not qualified. No one really cares about products and how to make improvment. Everyone is wasting time. They play game to hire many temps.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring a really principle engineer to be a leader and firing all unqualified engineers
