    Pros

    It is undoubtedly one of the best places to work in. If you ask any random employee about the best part of their job, 90% would say without a second thought "Work Life Balance".

    Cons

    The company follows a strategy of growing by acquisition and mergers. Many new people become a part of this company as a part of this process and they don't mix well with the culture of Schneider Electric. If you are working in one of such departments, your experience might be different.

    Market value of resume goes down if you stay here for more than a year
    Most managers are incapable and promote people based on favourism
