Pros: great growth potential
Cons: pto doesn't carry over
This is a large multinational organization. There are numerous programs to learn and grow. Benefits are good, but the vacation doesn't accrue from year to year. People work hard and are nice to work with.

Pros: great support staff.
Cons: no cons except pay. no consistent schedule.

National Account Manager (Current Employee), Northeast US – March 13, 2014
Pros: overall company strategy around energy management; compensation/benfits
Cons: slow to develop company culture; large organization with considerable bureaucracy
Schneider Electric is the global leader in energy management and plays a significant role in developing and deploying cutting-edge energy projects. The company offers above average salaries and great benefits. Since Schneider Electric is such a large, growth-by-acquisition type of company, a compelling company culture is often lacking.
Production Operative (Former Employee), Leeds, ENG – March 13, 2014
Quite a bit of repetitive work, learnt to cope with deadlines and under pressure management was okay if you had a problem they would try sort it, co workers not so great a few of the foreign workers was very rude. hardest art was keeping up with targets.
Financial Controller (Former Employee), Flint, WLS – February 25, 2014
Pros: good career company
Cons: salary and politics
Typical big Company with "different" methods of work, especially financial, where it was accepted by the Company that to fully understand their methods and culture takes time. European management are good to work for and made genuine attempts at a work/life balance, however as always in Finance work pressure and deadlines etc results in this being hard – more... to achieve. Finance was considered essential and the Controller was a senior member of the team, who worked closely with the Factory Manager. A very Team orientated Company. The finance dept was always busy, with the only consistent being change. Development/progression was encouraged, but was dependant upon ability to relocate world wide. – less
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Lexington, KY – February 24, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: wearing earplugs all day
I worked with a great group of people. I primarily worked on one assembly line with my group, constructing electrical switches. We would alternate positions in the line every hour. I really got a great understanding of blue collar work in the short time I was with the company. The hardest part of the job was probably the monotony associated with the – more... tasks required. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with. – less
Pros: a good working environment, training available, interaction with management, goal oriented.
I liked the professional interaction with coworkers and the opportunities to develop your expertise. Didn't like that some of the project managers were not technically equipped to assist with customers concerns.
Finance (Current Employee), West Kingston, RI – February 5, 2014
Pros: benefits, work life balance
Cons: career path, team collaboration
In terms of work life balance and health benefits, Schneider Electric hits a home run. In terms of compensation, they are well below the outside market, when comparing with similar jobs to CVS, Hasbro, etc. I would recommend senior management to work on career path and development for their front line employees as well as first line managers, as there – more... is very little room for growth, unless you are extremely well connected with headquarters – less
