    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The co-workers were great and the work/life balance was enjoyable.

    Cons

    There was no room for moving up unless someone else left the company. Even then the jobs were usually given without any real interview process and was simply given to whoever upper management wanted. No career development no matter how hard you work or how efficient you become.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on some benefit for your good employees. If you can't promote them financially there should still be some way you can help them move their career along. I was there 4 years with only great reviews. And while I loved my job and my coworkers I just couldn't stay at a company where there was no room to be promoted when you deserved it.
