    I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company values and principles. Use to be a nice place to work. Nice and hard working team

    Cons

    Everything looks amazing in a global scale. Doors closed, management team in Galway completely disregards any good initiative that the company may have towards their employees. Only goal here is to have as few people as possible doing as much work as possible. No matter if you have to miss breaks or stay overtime. Zero room for initiative or creativity, they just want you to keep doing things the old way while... they'd pretend to promote the opposite. Training is completely underestimated, you just get by, and find solutions on your own if you can, meanwhile loads of money are invested on online training and development tools that are not actually useful for your role and that you don't have the time to even look at.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone with some actual knowledge on human resources management instead of promoting people that are clearly lacking any kind of leadership skill or authority to speak up for their team.

    It would be nice if a bit more trust and flexibility could be awarded to personnel, especially those working external to the local office

    I worked at Schneider Electric for less than a year

    Pros

    Very well run. Excellent focus on the customer and developing individual talent. Good work generally rewarded. Innovative and focused. A really great organization.

    Cons

    Bumped my head off the glass ceiling a few times. On two separate occasions my managers did their best to promote me and were blocked by their manager, a SVP whose no longer with the company,. It's a pity to see that more senior manager got away with it. Mergering with an organization whose competitive advantage is very different causes significant culture change, and a larger slower organization whose... decision-making is less focuses on the customer (but still good).

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on customers. Keeping competitive advantage in-house. It's worth investing in IT in-house. Speed of decision making and ability to move quickly slowed significantly since merger with Schneider Electric. Remember one organization started with tanks and the other in a garage post-MIT.

    Pros

    Good working conditions, very professionally run and open to suggestions from employees. Work atmosphere was very positive and conducive to generating results

    Cons

    Very few. They do things that they say they will do. Sometimes a little short on time to get jobs done but that is probably the same as everywhere else. Would have liked to see better bonus structure.
