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

    Pros

    Great company culture. Family atmosphere. Lots of fun events (field day, ice cream day, pie day, Thanksgiving lunch served by executives). Good benefits. Lots of ways to move up and about within the company.

    Cons

    Long hours. Frequent calls early in morning or in middle of the night with EU and Asia. Matrix management isn't all that efficient/effective. Multiple ERP systems just in USA make life extremely complex and difficult. Training through the online tool way overemphasized. Difficult to get professional development/training outside of the Cornerstone tool. The individual manager under which you work makes all the difference in the world. Although there is management training available to managers, the company does not make this training mandatory. So, manager skill is incredibly variable. Some are excellent. Some are not.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline reporting roles and lines. Make training/professional development a priority. Travel restrictions are a real hindrance to conducting normal business. Make long-term relationships with suppliers a priority over short-term savings goals.

    Pros

    Schneider Electric is one of the most generous companies when it comes to employee benefits. A 401K they match dollar for dollar up to 6%! Full medical and many other employee perks. They also offer very competitive pay.

    Cons

    A huge French company, 170,000 employees hat has purchased so many other companies it is difficult to assimilate all the cultures. They also fund new start ups without justifiable research and analysis. Many of those start ups fail leaving a large number of talented people having to search for new jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate of organic growth and slow down the MA.
