    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.

    Organizational Quality, advancement opportunities, global company

    Pros

    SE has a good problem-space in which to work, and enough challenges to keep things interesting. Beyond the day-to-day, there are plenty of initiatives one can get involved with to broaden one's scope, learn something new, or strengthen relationships and friendships in the work-community.

    Cons

    Strict facilities management can make the inside of the building seem drab and corporate IT is still changing and trying to figure out how best to service the massive number of SE employees.

    Pros

    Company is very large so I never feel pigeon-holed...I'm able to switch around every couple years so I can stay challenged.

    Cons

    Like any large manufacturing company, there are still some baby boomers around who want to do things "the way we've always done it". My experience is however, that attitude is on the decline and we're doing a great job of getting in new, fresh talent who are always looking to improve.

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a great strategic growth model and leadership are always watching mega trends to ensure that Schneider stays relevant and aligned with customers needs. Lots of cross business opportunities and growth potential and good competitive salary. Also, great work life balance!

    Cons

    Growth and company acquisition can make processes a little frustrating. Also need more focus on country process and less global process as it hinders business with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your customers and your employers and you will continue to be a leader!
