    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work life balance is pretty good, I managed to keep to 9-5 most of the time. The working environment is good too, most people get along well, the office spaces are nice and there is a good canteen.

    Cons

    Schneider Electric is a huge organisation and everything gets bogged down by processes. Decisions take far too long to be taken and projects drag on longer than they should.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the core part of your business. Invest in real technology and not just on trend marketing terms. Get a grip on projects that are taking far too long to execute.

    Be customer centric,

  7. "Engineer"

     in London, England
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Schneider Electric

    Pros

    Okay place to work. Current team is easy to get along with. Direct manager is fairly flexible which makes for a good work life balance.

    Cons

    Current work is very specific thus there is no variety to expand into other areas of the business as each department is more or less a different division on it's own. However this is meant to be addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be more proactive in retaining current employees as it has not been the case as numerous highly experienced people have already left the company to other competitors!

    "Exciting global company, but not in the UK"

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of career challenges, great technologies, ability to work and get global experience. Some great people. Clear global direction.

    Cons

    Highly political in the UK, if you fit in and do well, but many others are ignored some of whom are much more capable but don't have the right alliances. Local execution of global policies is slow and poorly done. Change management is not considered important so many employees have been lost along the way. Too many senior managers have been in the same job for too long. Work life balance is poor - too much travel and too much expected from a few.

    Advice to Management

    Have a serious look at the UK management team and structure - it is stale with a high risk of self serving decision making. No one should be in the same post for more than 5 years. You have great offers but they won't be well executed because of intransigency.

  10. "Positive culture and company focus on business and employee growth"

    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. The culture is a positive, inclusive and encouraging. 2. Compensation is in line with the industry and bonus opportunities are real and tangible. 3. The company is very relevant to the 21st century and growing in the key markets so a great place to further a career.

    Cons

    1. As a large company working remotely and collaboratively is a constant challenge. 2. As a fast paced environment that can be difficult to adjust to for some. 3. Due to working across different time zones work-life balance can be tricky to achieve

    Advice to Management

    Ensure change is not for change sake and has time to bed in to business as usual.
