    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was with Schneider Electric for eight years. When they purchased our company, they were open to combining the best practices of our group with their own best practices. It was never a case of "You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile." They were forward thinking. When our office was eventually closed, they were generous with their severance package and did what they could to make the parting as painless as possible.

    Cons

    The biggest downside was that we were eventually closed when they consolidated offices, but that happens.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Large company so change is slow.

    Advice to Management

    This business is driven by a varying construction industry. We do not sell "widgets" and growth goals should be focused on achievable results and not YoY numbers.

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

    Pros

    Global reach with great people, solutions and technology, primary focused on the high growth market of energy efficiency. Some good strategic thinking at the top that has helped reposition the brand to be more compelling to more market segments.

    Cons

    Vision at the top is often not effectively connected with actions at middle management level. Missing opportunities because different groups and solutions are unable to integrate with each other. Size and complexity of company makes decision making slow, and processes burdensome and tedious. Repeating cycle of layoffs to meet bottom line goals results in many dedicated, high-performing, experienced people being regularly lost.

    Advice to Management

    Value the brain trust you have built in your employees, they are your greatest asset. Reduce internal politics to enable better synergy between businesses and solutions.
