    I worked at Schneider Electric as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I interned at Schneider Electric in their Shanghai branch during the summer of 2012.
    The team I worked in was great! The work was also very intellectually stimulating.

    Cons

    The different offices are spread out across Shanghai. It takes a while to go anywhere you want to go.
    The language barrier is also an issue. However with time it becomes easier to communicate properly.

    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in Carrollton, TX (US)

    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company values are top-notch
    Work-Life Balance is insane. Always felt like my personal life was almost more important than my professional one.
    Great culture. In and out of the office the people were always nice to be around
    Competitive Pay

    Cons

    I really don't have too many negative things to say. Possibly relocation can be tough, and the job itself was pretty boring. Also, my job was very client-facing and I wanted to get away from that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kill the clients. Murder them all. (Kidding...) (Kind of...)
