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

    Pros

    This was a local company that has very good people to work with. When Schneider Electric purchased it, it became more cost effective, and more efficient in its processes.

    Cons

    It made some errors in customer relations, and is struggling to regain market share from those lost customers. Also, focusing on cost, it laid off many more costly and experienced people for cheaper and less experienced people, which has affected it negatively.
