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

    Pros

    One of the company in " Worlds most ethical companies list". Lot of growth opportunities for employees. There are lot of company programs which focus on "Diversity and Inclusion", "Employee Wellbeing" and my favorite "Highperformance culture". You will find the best of employee benefits and policies. The company is rated hign on technology and innovation and being rated in top three in "Worlds most reputed companies " in its field.

    Cons

    Some of the processes are cumbersome due to strong matrix organisation structure. Since Schneider is a big company, implementing same values throughout different sites is difficult. The management should focus on "Onecompany" value system at al the Schneider Sites.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It's one of the Great company...Awarded Best Employer Award in India by AON in 2017. Internationally awarded so many awards. There are so many aspects a company can be valued. But as an Employe, I would be only value the benefits I'm getting. Some of the good benefits compared to other companies are : - Sodexo Food coupon worth Rs.1100/- per month, over and above the CTC - Salary Advance policy for 6 months of Basic repayable in 11 months. - Company ESOP (Employee share) facility, matching contribution from Employer, and again you can take company interest free loan for investing in company share :-) - Cash award and Dinner voucher for employess completing 3,5,7,10,15 yrs etc. - Mobile Phone Expense (COCP) reimbursement - Internet/Broadband expense reimbursement for for Managers (Grade-6) and above. - Interest Free Car Lease for Managers (Grade-6) and above. - 'Day Care' fee reimbursement upto Rs.8000/- per month for women employees. - Wedding Gift amount of Rs.5000/- credited to salary, when an employee gets married. - Medical Insurance for self, family and parents and company gives half of the amount. - Free cashless Health checkup worth Rs.2500/- for employee every year/once in 2 yrs. - Accidental insurance and normal death/disability insurance - double/quadraple of your Annual salary. - 21 days of PL, 12 days of Sick and 7 days of CL apart from 12 Holidays every year. - Flexible timing... you can come anytime and go anytime, work should be finished on due date. ...and the best part is Salary is credited on or before 25th of the current month :-)

    Cons

    There are few cons of this company : - As it's a comfortable company to stay, people stay for longer years like 10, 15, 20 years in this company. - Some bosses to partiality and give better opportunity to their favourites (i think, that's everywhere) - Somewhere I feel, it has a Govt culture. People misuse the flexibility. - Since it's a big company, it take time to change a policy and change the legacy technologies.

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of internal opportunities, including international mobility (if desired and with good performance), work-life balance, environmental responsibility, and After COVID-19 the way the company responded was SUPERB. They avoided firing people as much as they could by implementing many measures like mandatory pat time and it worked. Not only the company avoided a crash but probably will come back stronger.

    Cons

    it's a big company, so expect sometimes for things to move slowly specially in global functions (roles).
