    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time

    Pros

    Office has grown substantially over past 3-4 years, allowing for signicant career advancement for many, consistent bonuses and great camaraderie. The culture is fantastic, never worked with more people that wanted to succeed and focused on teamwork. Customers and employees are definitely the priority.

    Cons

    Nothing other than minor stuff that comes with every job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse company with lots of opportunities if you seek them out. Vision of the company is exciting and enabling.

    Cons

    Big company can be hard to network/navigate. Some processes and policies seem outdated (for isntance, IE 7.0 is still the standard web-browser). Politics can get in the way of productivity, like in most big companies.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in younger and more diverse workforce, and find more ways to develop middle management into new leaders.

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

    Pros

    Schneider is big on moving people around, if that is what they want. There are numerous opportunities in the company, both domestic and international. Schneider promotes working at home, career growth and treats their employees as valueable assets.

    Cons

    Like most large companies, process and politics can sometimes be a challenge but management allows debate and counter points of view.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees, maintain your family/work life balance policy and continue to promote from within when possible

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and work/life balance are fantastic. Specifically, the 401k match is better than average. Most managers encourage flexible work schedules to foster successful personal lives. Working for a global company gives you a lot of exposure to new people and opportunities. The company offers solutions for customers to be more energy efficient and that's something you can feel good about.

    Cons

    Schneider Electric is so big, we suffer from a matrixed organizational structure. That said, sometimes simple tasks take longer than they should because of disparate inernal systems and cumbersome processes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire part-time employees or interns to help with time-consuming administrative work.
