    Global specialist in energy management offering endless opportunities for career development.

    Buyer (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat opportunity for job growth, very competitive benefits, flexible work schedules, and a multitude of office locations are only the start of the great things about working for Schneider. I love going into work every day and knowing that I am actively contributing to making our earth a more sustainable place.

    ConsSome people have complained that they don't make enough money, but I have been satisfied with my compensation. Also, office politics can get in the way of progress sometimes, but I am sure that is true of many places.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold more town-hall style meetings to get feedback from the "soldiers on the ground." Many of us have great ideas to contribute!

    My experience....6.5 yrs

    Anonymous (Current Employee) West Kingston, RI (US)

    ProsGood benefits, Nice people; Much potential to expand and grow; Good employee perks

    ConsToo many young people with little to no experience; Career growth is only possible if you have connections; Everything is controlled by sales; No process is ever followed; Angry customers threaten to take business elsewhere; Lack of ethic and responsibility from the newer college grads. If management actually listened or read the surveys, they would know this. Their idea of corporate life is not for simple, family-oriented individuals. Every day is like high school all over again. I miss professionalism and seeing hard work pay off.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stop hiring know it all team leaders who know nothing about the work, because it only hurts the teams! Help your employees grow, not just talk about it. It doesnt matter how many jobs are open, if the managers get to choose friends over others. Offer skills training classes and be the leaders that we believe you are. Everyone likes their job, but were starting to feel like a number.
