    Pros

    • The work culture is open and ample ownership opportunities are available.
    • There are smart people in leadership positions who ensure positive development of the work force.
    • My managers and leaders have been very open and responsive to my suggestions.
    • A lot of projects are available across the spectrum.
    • As an intern, my manager would ask me what kind of projects I would prefer that would benefit me and add to my career goals.
    • Despite the bureaucracy embedded in the system, pushing through gets work done.
    • Vibrant and diverse workforce ensures constant learning and interaction.

    Cons

    • Like every other large organization, Schneider Electric has ample amounts of bureaucracy that can hinder work.
    • I faced a lot of internal red tape when getting work done.
    • Entry level internships have low wages which can be demotivating over the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into wages for interns. Otherwise, you're doing awesome. Keep it going.

    Pros

    Schneider invests time in their employees and provides plenty of platforms to develop oneself professionally. The culture is fun, competitive, and diversity affirming .

    Cons

    Working in the all center can get a bit repetitive, but this is the entry level position within the sales development program so it is only temporary.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting your employees the way you do! The management teams I have dealt with support their employees and their own personal career tracks! I feel comfortable being transparent with my supervisor and I know he supports me in all of my endeavors.
