    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 Instead of the old and outdated good old boy system.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

    A good perspective and strong point of Schneider Electric is that it provides a friendly environment for employees. Most of the colleagues, and managers are friendly and you can probably collaborate with them.
    Company provides good health care, and good amount of PTOs.

    Cons

    The progress path is very limited. You may start in a position and stay there for quite a long time. Pay is not that much competitive with the industry standards for skilled individuals. Corporate being widely spread around the world, and its headquarter being in France, negatively impact the USA employees scope of involvement/ and progress.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits except for vacation days, which were average. Amazing flexibility. Understanding management.

    Cons

    Work could get repetitive, but you get that in every job.
