    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...)
