    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This organisation is HUGE. Schneider is in over 200 countries, and it has an office in every state in Australia. Annual revenue of the company is $50 billion. My personal experience has been great, good work life balance, lots of departments to move into, lot of good people work here. No wonder it is in the top 10 (7th on list) best places to work in Australia. The offices are 2nd to none. Every workplace has petty office politics and so does Schneider but it is not as big as other places.

    Cons

    Sometimes management can be unrealistic in their expectations

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Overall working at Schneider gives you great experience working as part of a large multinational. You get an understanding of how a business of this size operates, and you get to work with a lot of different functions from all over the world which provides a great environment for personal growth. Some roles have semi-regular interstate and international travel. You are paid well.

    Cons

    Unfortunately though, mostly due to the sheer size of the company, it is a bureaucratic mess. There is no clear focus in the organisation and the different departments are all pulling in different directions. Often when an issue needs to be solved, it is impossible to find who the correct person/department is to help, and you get pointed in different directions until you've gone in circles for weeks on end with no result to show for it. It can take months for the smallest and simplest change to happen which can leave you very stressed. There are many corporate-ladder climbers in the organisation, particularly in middle-management, that are difficult to work with and make your job hard.
