I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Benefits - medical, dental, 401K and vision. Co-workers outside of management are very nice to work with.

Cons

Overly micro-managed for no valid reason. system support/ IT is poor at best. You can never count on the systems to be up and running. The micro management is past the point of ridiculous and redundant. Management doesn't understand the workings of a shop environment and what it takes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let people do what they are skilled at not doing endless reports for no valid reason. Employees should be working on customer satisfaction not managers reports. Learn some of the jobs you are micromanaging.

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

    Pros

    Career structure: good visibility for movement, great benefits, and supportive working environment

    Cons

    Still running on XP, and IT is messy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do less IT work in house. We are not experts on the subject and unless we are adding a software and hardware IT business, if we are going to be evolving on track with competition we need some expert outside support.
