Overworked and Overlooked, but Optimistic

Marketing Communications Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI'm never bored at work, and have lots of opportunities to learn new skills and meet new people. I'm proud of the company's "energy access" and sustainable development programs, its focus on green products, and its leading edge energy management software and solutions.

ConsI and many of my colleagues are paid less than we should be -- some of us considerably less. Everyone I know loves our CEO, but the executives under him are often unpredictable, unreasonable and unkind.

Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate your approach to identifying and retaining talented employees. The attitude seems to be, "If you think you're worth more, prove it by getting another job offer." The reality is that nobody I work with would go out and get a competing offer just to negotiate a higher salary. If we get a better offer, we're gone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
