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

    Pros

    Schneider is a fresh breath of air for me. It's is a company that does not judge you based on culture but ability. Many companies in our industry (Process Automation) use the term you don't fit the culture. Which is definition for you don't look like us. Schneider focuses on hiring top talent and strengthening that talent. Through training, developing and actually caring about its employees. Instead of the old and outdated good old boy system. Which brings no true value to customers.

    Cons

    It's a big company with a lot of procedures that need streamlining. Hiring takes a bit of patience but I guess anything worth having take time to get. Hey I had to put something here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep staying ahead of the industry. You may stand out but those that lead always do. Oh and streamline some of those processes.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Health benefits, 401K, Health reimbursement and stock options.

    Cons

    Inexperienced and unskilled managers, heavy work loads, unrealistic expectations, no raises. Reorganization in Energy Services has caused many to quit, morale is low, high stress load for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    If the intent was to lose good employees you are accomplishing that with the unskilled and poor management group brought in via the reorganization. That would be the only success this year.
