    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 Instead of the old and outdated good old boy system.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.

    Pros

    Coworkers seem like family. We work well together as a TEAM.

    Cons

    Forecasts.....we tend to "live on the edge" not knowing what orders are coming. We take on more orders that we can make within customer specified time.

    Advice to Management

    Replace OS Manager. Please get someone that can truly forecast orders.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee friendly company, lots of training oppurtinities, international relationships, challenging tasks, personal development is possible, good salary for office workers compare to other companies

    Cons

    Not always clearified targets, rapidly changing directions throughout the years based on actual manager ideas, lower level of 'standardization' compare to automotive companies

    Advice to Management

    No special issues- A little more 'real' attention to employees, a little bit closer 'contact' with production and 'real life', more effective meeting techniques to speed up projects, time management

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

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. Work from home 2-3 days/week. Access to various recruiting tools and resources. No micromanaging as long as you're performing. Management actually listens to employees for constructive criticism and process improvements. Great team with no drama. They really care about your career growth and mentor you to help you advance within the organization. Excellent benefits, especially 401K and employee stock purchasing plan.

    Cons

    Some KPI's out of Recruiters control, but overall management understands if there is a discrepancy. Sometimes there are too many tools and systems we're required to work within.

    Advice to Management

    They actually take a survey of their employees' feedback on a regular basis to see what they can improve upon and take those results very seriously. My only advice is to keep doing that :)
