    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    401k, health reimbursement, good people to work with if not upper management level, training courses.

    Cons

    Upper management is also overseeing and micromanaging the situation. There is no trust in there employees and will be continuously checked up on. Never left to complete tasks before moving on the the next job assignments. Parts are always a issue in all the facilities. Hard to deal with suppliers due to supply chain planning always searching for orders and volume due to not being constant work.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees and people that surround your. Do not micromanage

    "Company built through forceful acquisitions"

    Former Employee - National Account Manager in Tualatin, OR

    Pros

    Not much is expected of the employees. If you are looking for stability in your day to day, this place is for you! Complacency thrives here!

    Cons

    Complacency thrives here. The company is way too conservative. They react rather than innovate. The company has way too many processes in place to make an impact or come up with fresh ideas. EVERY action requires meetings after meetings

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to fail. The one good idea could propel you to the top. Evaluate the employees that have been there for way too long and get rid of the non-performers

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

    Pros

    Employee friendly company, lots of training oppurtinities, international relationships, challenging tasks, personal development is possible, good salary for office workers compare to other companies

    Cons

    Not always clearified targets, rapidly changing directions throughout the years based on actual manager ideas, lower level of 'standardization' compare to automotive companies

    Advice to Management

    No special issues- A little more 'real' attention to employees, a little bit closer 'contact' with production and 'real life', more effective meeting techniques to speed up projects, time management
