Toxic corporate culture breeds employee dissatisfaction on wide scale
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 7 May 2017
A typical day at work is 10-15% engineering related. The rest of the time you're busy navigating the complicated bureaucracies and roadblocks imposed by inept managers, directors and VPs and as well as "dodging bullets". The company has a large overhead due to bloated management. Management is very inexperienced on a technical level. Company excels at purchasing other companies, destroying their businesses and ruining their product lines. Only hope for promotion is to be a french sycophant (no other skills necessary).
Contract Specialist (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 April 2017
Terrible company culture. Very few people in this office are friendly. Young workforce and everyone is out for themselves. Advancement opportunities are based on who you know in the company, not on what you know. Focus on customer satisfaction, which is great except that the company forgets that in order to have employees who motivate customers, the employees must be motivated as well.

Schneider pushes for having a work life balance allowing for an open schedule within the group. As well as a global company it has many opportunities to collaborate with the company and with the city you are located.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 10 April 2017
Doing the work of 3 people, reactive not proactive Learned to prioritize Management were understanding but not able to reduce workload The workplace culture varied from department, but it was overall quite friendly. Getting everything done in a day was difficult had to get in early and leave late, often in the office on my own. Travel to Toronto for team meetings, and across the country for project work provided relief from sitting at the desk for 8 hours straight.
All has no order, no procedures for nothing. Third world HR policies. Lots of bad back stabbing policies. No career plan, they are firing a lot of people all over Canada. They bend the HR law. Worst place to put a foot ever. No salary increases. The CEO is a people killer
Good company to learn old software and workhard without any reward
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 March 2017
I have worked more than a year. Company is not organized. Lot of source for the same data but different result. No rewards for the hard work you do. Due to business is down in past few year they are laying off lot of people.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 January 2017
State of the art office, many accessible resources, great compensation and benefits. They really care about employees and have many programs to be apart of working within the company. Everyone was friendly, outgoing and helpful. Great life and work balance approach and cultural as well.
I liked working for Schneider. There was a good work/life balance. Good managers and team members. Good international company with many great offices around the world.
Unfortunately to really advance you usually had to be able to travel extensively and/or move to a different location. Doesn't like team members to be remote, so you have to live in the city that the offices are.
