I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than a year

Pros

I've read several of the reviews here, both pro and con and I can certainly see the view points of both sides. Pros are certainly decent pay and benefits, work/life balance, culture, career growth and mobility, etc. The cons tend to come from those that were unfortunately on the bad side of an acquisition. Truth is, most people stay at Schneider for a long time and that does say something.

Cons

As with most large companies that grow through acquisition, consolidation of people, systems, methodologies and even cultures can be difficult and fiefdoms abound. Navigating those waters can be a challenge and patience is required.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lotus Notes, really? And how many collaboration programs and platforms do we have? Some things really do need to be consolidated; and not internally!

    Pros

    Large multinational organization. Movement between other entities and countries is highly encouraged. Good opportunity to gain experience.

    Cons

    Experience depends on where you work because there are lots of different entities and not all are the same. Integration of those entities have not been that good. You have to move to a different location if you want to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much people know what Schneider Electric is or does so try to improve brand awareness.

    Pros

    Company has been doing well.

    Cons

    Schneider Electric is a French owned company. Decisions about the entities based in North America are made by French. Different country...different culture. This is affecting moral and will affect success of the company eventually.
