      Pros

      Good company, products and people.

      Cons

      Somewhat political and dysfunctional leadership. Internal culture does not match external image portrayed.

      Advice to Management

      "Culture eats strategy for breakfast"......change leadership to drive a new culture.

      I worked at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Great digital tools to collaborate, innovative. Very interesting business. Talented people. The organisation supported until recently work flexibility initiatives and telecommuting. Culture and values were fantastic up to recent changes, new values.

      Cons

      Politics undermine trust across the organisation. Some sort of "new policies" are forcing personnel to relocate to regional hub. Lack of transparency when it comes to people's management. Top-down attitude from management, no participative decision process. Lack of alignment between corporate and regional management, a lot of politics and time wasted in deliberations.

      Advice to Management

      From deliberative to top-down, is this a definite wanted change? Expertise is no longer required, only "doers"? The organisation's main pillar is its workforce. People are willing to embrace meaningful values they can relate to, not just "mottos". Enforcing policies for resources to either relocate or be hired in hubs does not make any sense in todays digitised world. There is extensive literature about the topic that...

      Pros

      The culture that has been formed over years of improving the employee/employer relationships

      Cons

      Room for improvement is very limited

      Advice to Management

      Take advice from employees more open heartedly

      I worked at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      very cosy, slow pace, wonderful for cruising in the slow lane, taking the scenic route in everything they do, fantastic job for 50yo+ when you have to slow down or for a student that needs her first job!

      Cons

      very slow pace, most people in the Sydney office are there for 10/15/20+ years, some haven't worked anywhere else

      I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Alot of internal training . some Directors are very good listeners. Flexible hours. A very good place to grow. Almost no office politics until director's level, this is a very rare thing.

      Cons

      Many of the high level managers talk only. Due the sheer size of the company, it does get very frustrated getting real work done-- if you are an honest, diligent employee. Everyone has their own KPI to meet, altho the HQ management realise the issue and introduce changes to disrupt it, too early to tell

      Advice to Management

      need to introduce a random non-leader role employee to offer a coveted co-workers performance review. Its too difficult to be honest and exposed at the same time. Issues not at direct report but indirect report

      Pros

      Good employee benefits, Schneider takes care of its staff, lots of training modules to take!

      Cons

      Not enough career progression, poor pay. It takes ages for any change to happen!

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

      Pros

      New modern and functional building and friendly people.

      Cons

      It was really hard to get some hardware and stationary. I have enjoyed my role as it was a stand-alone but I had to push to get recognition.

      Advice to Management

      Also non-Australian employees should have opportunities to have a career and to be listened by management.
