    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 Instead of the old and outdated good old boy system.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

    Pros

    Good atmosphere at work, great teams and involved managers working side by side with the administrator. Young people and development opportunities.

    Cons

    High workload, there is room for employee development but the flow of work does not allow it that much. Weak knowledge transfer when someone is leaving

    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

    Good brands, pay and benefits. Great people overall from top to bottom.

    Cons

    The company is poor at understanding their market sectors, becuase the executives do not listen to their customers or the people in their organization who are close to the market and customer.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices and visit the market place.
