Good company to work for
IT Junior Systems Engineer (Former Employee), Rockville, MDFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: learning experience
Cons: lack of project work towards the end of my tenure
Learning as much as possible about the IT hardware and software internal products.
Management informed of what projects to come and lack of projects.
Co-workers very helpful and understanding.
The hardest part of the job was not being able to travel and assist other areas of the company due to school work.
The most part that I enjoyed about the company – more... was the people I worked with, very helpful and my manager was willing to give the opportunity to get involved in other projects whether related or not related to the position. – less

Technical Development Program
Technical Support Engineer I (Current Employee), West Kingston, RIMarch 28, 2013
Pros: co-workers are enjoyable
Cons: no actual career development. they don't seem to want you to migrate outside of the call center.
The job is rather typical of a call center. You spend all day taking calls from the queue and helping out customers as they come along. A lot of the job is really just keeping constant contact with customers and other employees.

It can be high stress and low reward, but most of the people you work with are very enjoyable. The job is not an amazing – more... gig by any means, but it is definitely made up for by the people in the office.

My only issue with the job is that they advertise it as a technical development program. There is little to no actual development for people in the tech role unless you plan on becoming an manager or want to stay in the phone support role. This is not the place to be if you are looking for a good place to get your feet wet as an engineer. – less

Great place to work, love the people & the business.
Director of Engineering - CPE Special projects (Current Employee), Clovis, CAOctober 1, 2012
Pros: its been a learning experience on a grand scale.
Cons: reduction in workforce, due to many changes in direction or goals.
- My experience is over a 20 year period and Pelco to Schneider-Electric change has been extremely exciting w/ grand challanges.

We have had many wins in the last 20 years and the business perspective has changed w/ many challenges to meet, learn from and grow.

The customer base has changed in many ways and the customer still requires product quality, – more... reliability, delivery on time, w/ a cost value added, in the form of support and price. – less

Schneider-Electric ETO Brisbane
Mechanical Industrial Engineer (Former Employee), Brisbane, QLDAugust 2, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: salary and wages, management
At Schneider-Electric Brisbane, you are working in a clean and organized environment, in the office as well as in the factory. Safety is number one at Schneider. The open office layout can be very noisy and it is hard at times to stay concentrated on your job. You can enjoy flexible working hours as long as you worked your 38 hour week. The most annoying – more... thing I found was all the paperwork to be done to get anything approved, like work instruction. Getting anything approved was very frustrating. Schneider-Electric ETOB could be a great place to work for if management would care more and listen more to their employees. Unfortunately, that is not the case, management attitude is "if you don't like it, there is the door". The moral and motivation of many employees has suffered because of management and their attitude towards them. Don't expect a great salary, it is kept to the minimum. Don't ask for a pay rise, you'll never get one anyway. All in all, Schneider is not a bad place to work for as long as you do everything what management is coming up with. I would not recommend to work at Schneider-Electric ETOB to anyone. Even you work in a clean environment, the salary and wages are just a tiny bit above award. The management doesn't care much about their employees and have the wrong attitude. No wonder there is no future for this business in Australia and parts of the business is already done oversees. This will be in my opinion another business clothing its doors in Australia to manufacture oversees. A company restructure currently going on has costed many jobs, including mine. My advice, don't stay away from Schneider-Electric ETO Brisbane. – less

Senior Engineer (Former Employee), Bangalore, KASeptember 19, 2012
Pros: free lunch
Cons: no cmmi standards, no motivation, too much of gossips, no learning management system, worst food
this review is only with respect to Schneider-electric GTCI R&D department in bangalore and not other branches.

come to office and open your project and start doing code, don't expect fun or share your thoughts.

Mgmt : no doubt your issues will be discussed but feel lucky if your professional issues are solved.

co-workers : most of them (90 %) co – more... workers were involved in gossips and playing politics, of course there were polite people but rarely found.

hardest part : proceed, get recognized for the right reason and be successful

most enjoyable : you can work for 9 hours , they never ask you to stretch, only good point i liked. there may be exception once in 6 months. – less
