Process oriented company that can be stressful and rewarding
Engineering support (Current Employee) –  Canada5 March 2019
Since it is a very large company and owns a lot of smaller entities this review is not for all of Schneider Electric. Some larger more stable parts of the company move very slowly and other parts with newer technology markets can move very quickly. It is a very process heavy work environment that can slow down your work.
Pros
Very large company
Cons
very large company

Its a job.......you make the best with what little they give you
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON23 February 2019
You work with some great people and Sr. management has some great ideas but middle management (directors and RSM's) struggle with implementing a strategy when the rubber hits the road. They take on a "I do not want to hear about any issues I just want results' mentality.

Little to no training on product offering or solutions and it is get an order at any cost. Job opportunities are limited and most sales opportunities are awarded to people based on their career plan vs. who is most qualified for the position.

Best part about the job is the people you work with and the worst part about the job is the lack of guidance and digesting the drivel that comes down from management. I think Schneider is loosing sight of what made them so large to begin with.
Pros
They leave you alone to do your job
Cons
No training, no guidance, and constant sales pressure

Terrible place to work for
System Integrator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB19 February 2019
This place is very much an old boys club and being female has given me little pay, harassment (Which was dealt with eventually) and no room to grow. Working at this company ended with me seeking counsel with the human right tribunal.
Pros
I had a job?
Cons
little pay, gender inequality and harassment

Competitive place to work with growth opportunities
Account Manager/Sales (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC19 February 2019
Schneider Electric is a demanding company which can lead to unbalanced work/life management. One trade off for the large diversified company with many new opportunities for personal growth is the difficulty in organizing so many people and communicating an effective team-driven strategy.
Pros
High Total Compensation
Cons
Unorganized

Nice innovative products
Linux Developer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON14 December 2018
Worked in small teams to design a proposed system prototype

Learned a lot about industrial automation. RTUs, SCADA etc.

Management is centralized and does not work well in a global company such as this.

Hard part was leaving when project was cancelled due to internal politics.
Pros
Very nice people to work with

Quotes/Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK6 December 2018
I worked there for 3 years. It's a great company and they have won awards for being a good place to work. They are very much about training and keeping their employees up to date on whatever they need to do their job.

A different mindset
Production Operator (Current Employee) –  Kanata. Ont.21 October 2018
Work culture is based on hours worked against number of units shipped for the day, even though shipping is cut off at 1:30p.m.
Production workers are a good mix of people, and the company does provide a exercise room, Dart Board and Table Tennis Table.
Pros
Many activities that include a free lunch
Cons
Physical Laboring most days

Une compagnie exemplaire et bien respecté dans leur domain, qui tiens le bien-être des employees au coeur
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Dollard-Des Ormeaux, QC19 September 2018
J'ai adoré travailler ici, et aurai beaucoup aimer avoir obtenu une poste permanente. La compagnie est trés bien respecté dans leur domaine, et pour la plupart, les gens sont acceuillent et plaisant. Poutant, il y a certaines cliques influentielles qui peuvent rendre la vie difficile si vous ne les joindre pas. Un peu trop de " politique de bureau" et de gens frustré qui ont beaucoup d'influence, mais pas l'authorité dont elles se croire entitulées.
Pros
Environment physique nouvellement renové, bien organisée et propre.
Cons
Certaines individues "prendrent beaucoup de place", elles ne sont pas jouers d'équipe. Il faut eviter les "Cliques".

Overall it was good
Software Tester (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BC7 September 2018
Relatively they pay student well, and the workload is not bad. But Schneider is business-oriented company not technology, so don't expect you can learn much about new techs.

Easily Expendable
Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 May 2018
This company was going through growing pains when I worked there, because it had recently been acquired. It created a frantic work culture where managers were frequently working 30+ hours of overtime, and where regular employees were frequently asked to come in during their weekends.
In the end, I got sick, then when I came back I was laid off after 3 months, and unfortunately I couldn't get EI benefits because no one even considered I might need them. In the end, I felt easily expendable.
Pros
occasional networking events
Cons
lots of overtime, expected

A changing, challenging workplace
Senior Specialist (Former Employee) –  Canada22 May 2018
The company has grown tremendously and, unfortunately, handled the changes badly. Promoting people who are not a good fit into management simply because of their longevity.
Otherwise, I have to say it was a fun place to work, I learned a lot, worked with some brilliant people and was able to become a much better world citizen.
When their previous CEO retired things went downhill. The focus was, for a time, the bottom line and now the focus is correcting bad business decisions through "right sizing".
