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

    Pros

    casual dress and decent benefits but that's about all I can say.

    Cons

    Too many Cliques and nepotism. You must be in the "in group" to get anywhere. They hire the majority of people from outside the company and are no help when it comes to training or advancing from within. When you ask for training they consistently blow you off. Again...you have to be in the right group. Meaning ITB/RI.

    Unless you work in Mexico or the Philippines. Which is where they seem to be sending all the jobs. It is extremely hard to get any assistance from anyone who is actually from and works in the US. They are constantly laying or firing people. It's becoming a monthly thing now. The company has forgotten what the term customer service means. That is customer service for both internal and external customers. Probably the reason for having to lay off so many people. Or maybe a direct result of sending all jobs outside of the US.

    Upper management has their own agenda and never listen to feedback from the lower level employees. They talk a good game of teamwork but in reality there is none.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time listening and helping your current employees excel and advance instead of immediately sending all the jobs to Mexico and the Philippines. Get you head out of the clouds and back to reality. Get rid of the "upper management" that is holding this company back in terms of customer service and sales.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time

    Pros

    Learn new processes and teams help you learn a lot

    Cons

    Things have changed too much, new processes being rolled out with so much over head that getting the simple job done is becoming impossible.

    Management doesn't want to hear the truth that there are major problems and the whole business inside is coming to slow and painful death.

    Advice to Management

    Take back the vision and work with people, recognize the talent and rebuild from bottom up. Not just saying we are doing it to show the world but actually care about it and then do it.

    C'est vraiment une super entreprise et y travailler m'a vraiment plu mais il faudrait revoir la politique des salaires qui n'est pas très transparente et aussi améliorer la communication interne afin d'être plus transparents à tous les niveaux et pas que au niveau N-2/-3.
