    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Has a great product portfolio within the Low Voltage and Extra Low Voltage category offering the chance to gain lots of knowledge about the businesses.
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    -Most of the current products that Schneider has under it came through acquistions and a problem with such a large number of take-overs is redundancy, lack of integration with different product divisions and confusion as to how to sell some of the products. Add to that, Schneider's current approach of solution sales is not clear and has not picked up which is hurting its product sales.
    -Schneider Gulf has a very high turnover rate of employees which is never a good indicator of a company or its HR
    -A change in top-level management and organization structure every year. This has a de-stabilizing effect on its employees due to the fact that you will again have to get used to a new management (and just when you are getting comfortable with how things were running) and are worried about your job security. Which has led to many great talent pool within Schneider leaving the company over the years and joing competitiors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Decrease the number of acquisitions and focus on how to strenghten the current product divisions
    -Clear management goals and organization structure that is fixed for atleast a few years without jumping the gun when things dont go as planned within the first year.
    -Retaining talents

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    Benefits are above the average.
    Global presence.
    A growing industry.

    Cons

    Too large.
    Not much people friendliness. You are only a head count on an spreadsheet at the end of the day.
    Not very good at cost control, operations efficiency.
    Career path is not clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of focusing on sales numbers, please take a moment to recognize the efforts of all your plant operations and understand the pain they've been suffering by being dragged by those sales numbers without much chance to realigning themselves to be the real world class operations. It's easy to put together some sales / marketing numbers but to achieve long term sustainable competitiveness you need to build a real strong operational force by developing the real efficient process and supply chain, not just cutting head counts instead.
