    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, people, and an overall relaxing environment. Challenging work but very rewarding in the end

    Cons

    Company seems to be stuck in its ways in some
    Segments. Little grown and outdated products can prove quite frustrating

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Would be nice to foster team building a bit more. The facilities cold use some updating too. Thanks

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time

    Pros

    The company execs preach work life balance. And most managers practice this.

    Cons

    Entrenched POVs and processes stifle creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to differentiate between multitasking vs task shifting.

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

    Pros

    Excellent in office culture that values teamwork & integrity
    Great work/life balance
    Good benefits with health, dental & vision insurance, as well as 401K, stock options and starting with 15 days of PTO
    Strive to provide growth opportunities to all employees

    Cons

    Salaries are slightly below industry average, in my opinion

    Advice to Management

    Paying employees slightly more can encourage them to not look elsewhere for employment
    Update and enhance in office environment to match the company goals of innovation and developing new technologies. Office currently feels drab and old.
