sales (Former Employee), West Kingston, RIJune 13, 2014
Pros: salary (maybe)
Cons: favoritism, incomeptant management with no accountability
Schneider picks and chooses who they offer training to and promoting positions are not always made public so that manager friends are given an advantage. (TRUTH)

Bonus Plan is impossible to understand and changes during the year. Bonuses are also almost always paid late.

You have to track your own sales and prove that you sold jobs. This is made even – more... more tedious because you are not given access to sales out reports that some have available.

Literally you can be in the same position and not have an equal opportunity for success.

Some departments do absolutely nothing and get by while other departments are constantly micromanaged.

In closing, if you get lucky with an easy territory life can be good... But if you actually work for your money its not appreciated.

You are also constantly threatened to be laid off... Which happens at least twice a year. – less

Stepping stones and safety net
IT Project manager (Former Employee), Loves Park, ILMay 14, 2014
Pros: stepping stones and safety net
Cons: be ressonable and responsible
What are Ethics, how humans are in relationship with themselves another? other. My focus is on ways that others' core values are translated into behaviors, how we can learn specific tools that help us beings make better decisions about groups. We are formed from two sources: One what we consider to be true about ourselves the others, what human qualities – more... are intrinsically good or valuable. – less

Not a good place to work
Technical Consulting Engineer 4 (Current Employee), West Kingston, RIApril 30, 2014
Pros: great benefits, great people to work with
Cons: no room for advancement, micromanagement, short breaks, constant scrutiny, cost cutting, and lay offs
Schneider Electric lured a bunch of extremely talented Engineers in their respective fields into their Technical Development program, assuring that they are hired for bigger and better things, and a spot in a growing company. This has turned out to be a lie, the technical development program is a call center, run by a team of people incapable of managing – more... and growing Engineers, because previous to this they have hired less qualified people.

There are jobs out there within the company, but they are hard to get to from this part of Schneider Electric. There are major upsides to this company, but you needed to have walked in through the right door, any old entry will not do. – less
