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

    Pros

    Schneider's tagline is "The Global Specialist in Energy Management." Working here really makes you feel like you're contributing to a meaningful purpose. Lately, there's been a strong push toward entrepreneurial practices and in giving employees more freedom to grow and develop themselves rapidly. They also have a strong commitment to a diverse and gender-balanced workforce. This has led to a community of extraordinarily talented people who are smart enough to push you and challenge you, but also fun to work with. In short, I really like feeling of excitement I get walking into work every day.

    Cons

    It is a large global company, and that can sometimes lead to your typical red tape, silos, and processes. Sometimes budgets go through a quarterly rollercoaster, which can lead to funding (for travel, events) being cut at the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the efforts to establish a culture of entrepreneurship. You're doing well to establish a sense of shared purpose in the realms of sustainability, efficiency and innovation!

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

    Pros

    Schneider Electric promotes an exceptional work life balance while allowing the employees to reach their career goals. Schneider Electric has an exceptional management team that promotes self improvement.

    Cons

    Considering Schneider Electric is a promoter of self improvement allowing employees to reach their career goals, at times there seems to be a quick turnover in middle management. This could potentially leave an employee wondering who they will report to and requires the employees to learn many management styles at a fast pace.

    Pros

    Company gives employees opportunities to grow. Schneider Electric truly prioritizes its employees.

    Cons

    As company continues to evolve, sometimes it lacks consistent structure.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to a strategy for company growth; I question whether such a large company should consistently change the way in which it functions at a corporate level.
