Marketing Specialist Intern (Former Employee) –  Ashburn, VAMay 21, 2019
Amazing experience and team. Eurotherm by Schneider Electric gave me an opportunity to work independently with mentors who were always there to help me. Summer hours, corn hole tournaments, baseball games, and ice cream Thursdays are some of the fun activities incorporated in this workplace!

Good work life balance
Designer (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDMay 17, 2019
Working for Schneider was a pretty nice company.
They do some time activities for employees to chill and kick back after work hours to help people get to know each other and meet people from other departments.
There is a really nice team of people.
The con is not enough support and structured training for folks that come from outside the industry and want to get started in system automation and hvac. Its a tough transition.
There are videos and training tools from Corporate Schneider, but
the internal staff has to spend more time on methodical training, instead of going head first into the deep end.
Pros
good company culture and employee activities
Cons
need better training schedules

No work/life balance in certain dept
Do not want to disclose (Current Employee) –  Tualatin, ORMay 17, 2019
Compensation is not as competitive, and no work/life balance. The company let go many people and no replacements. The people remain had to take on all the work, and there is no increase of compensation for the amount of work people have to take on. Benefits are good. You have job security if you have good relationship with the management and are willing to relocate to other countries/states.

An extremely great company to work for
Cloud Engineer (Former Employee) –  Franklin, TNMay 15, 2019
My typical day would be a 0300hrs meeting with teams in the U.K. or the Czech Republic, development, 0900hrs morning stand-up, and development.

This was the best experience in my career. I had the opportunity to the IotHub POC's, as well as the API -> Service Fabric -> IotHub -> in home integrations. These were all new technologies that were on-boarded as our concrete cloud implementation. I could talk about this all day!

The hardest part was integrating so many different firmware devices that use very different protocols, into the same pipeline, without modifying code for individual devices. It was a highly received exercise on my part.

I encourage anybody to get involved with Schneider if you can.
Pros
Always something new going on
Cons
Headquarters is in Montreal Canada, and the last manager did not receive Americans well, which is why our team was dissolved.

Repetitive and boring
Temporary Worker (Former Employee) –  Oxford, OHMay 13, 2019
This job plays favortisim as well as stirring up drama with almost every person that works there. Theres a 95% chance you wont get hired on epsecially if you work 2nd shift. If you happen to work 1st shift as a temp, Schneider Electric will eventually force you to work 2nd shift or else they will fire you. They expect you to work overtime every Friday and Saturday in order to get hired on which is working 10 hour shifts 6 days a week. As a matter of fact they have only hired 3 people in the past 2 years. Dont waste your time at a place that doesnt care about you because they always find a reason to fire a temp even if you are truly an efficient, hard-working person.
Pros
10 minute break every 2 hours and a 30 minute lunch
Cons
Untrustworthy company, supervisors, and workers.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugy
Sr. Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 12, 2019
SE could be a very fulfilling place to work but many times one could get lost and just become a number. It really depended on who ones manager was. There was a bad habit of promoting people to managers that should have never happened.

BUYER (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXMay 10, 2019
I liked the people and the benefits were great but the culture is very cut throat. Overall though its a great place to work and if you like a fast paced environment you will love working here.

Worst company to work for in the world
Electrical & Mechanical Fitter (Former Employee) –  United KingdomApril 30, 2019
I worked as a fitter at Schnieder Electric up and down the country.
I have never encountered a managment team that are so out of touch with their employees. They are there to make themselves look good and will stab anyone in the back who works for them to achieve that ! This is across the company and is the feeling of many employees and not just myself.
The office staff couldn’t run a bath nevermind the work load of a national company.
They promise you the world and promise that they provided training to allow you to advance through the company. Don’t believe any of this.
I left as soon as i could and have never looked back.

If you want to have no social life, live in hotels alone, be treated like dirt and love the look of the M6 motorway. SCHNEIDER IS THE PLACE FOR YOU !!
Pros
Company Van fully kitted out
Cons
Everything else

Human Resources Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Monterrey, N. L.April 30, 2019
The tasks I am currently performing are okay, however, the path that I wan to take to grow is not currently open.
I must pursue it outside of the company, if needed.

Awful senior managers, below average pay, good W/L balance
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Macquarie Park NSWApril 29, 2019
Top performers were given salary review on par with inflation.

Senior managers who wear multiple hats are too busy to know the reality, but rather only react on figures.

Good direct line managers who show respect to employees, with good work life balance. But their effort is undermined by mediocre pay rise for even top performers.
