    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time

    Pros

    Our benefits are very good. In speaking with others in my community or industry, I find our benefits are much better than most. I like the company push to "pay for performance". There have been many low performers hanging on for a long time, taking away from productivity. Company is always trying to improve our workplace and keep us in the loop from a change perspective. I do feel challenged at work and that the things I do makes a difference.

    Cons

    It is a global company and despite efforts to streamline departments, its organization is still quite convoluted and confusing. Very long and complicated supply chain.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on employee relations. Listen to the voices of your customers and empower local resources to drive change upwards.

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

    Pros

    This is a very large company and that means you could build an entire career here if you wish, and many people do. There are plenty who have over 20+ years at this company.

    Cons

    There many roles in the company that are run based on performance measurements. Those measurements usually drive only partially helpful behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid pushing performance measurements as the only way to do a role.
