    I worked at Schneider Electric full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Good culture of work/life balance, you won't see people stay later than 5 or 6 often. - Decent pay & benefits (28 holidays + national holidays, very nice) - Subsidised canteen. - I found my manager was open to feedback, and listened to his engineers when we brought up issues. - Some cutting edge tech, more innovation than might be normal in the embedded space, willing to try new tools & technologies.

    Cons

    Location, unfortunately Galway has been affected by the housing crisis. Renting is expensive, and the quality of rental accommodation is pretty bad. Cost of living is almost as high as it would be in Dublin.

    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.
