Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), Lexington, KY – February 24, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: wearing earplugs all day
I worked with a great group of people. I primarily worked on one assembly line with my group, constructing electrical switches. We would alternate positions in the line every hour. I really got a great understanding of blue collar work in the short time I was with the company. The hardest part of the job was probably the monotony associated with the – more... tasks required. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with. – less
Pros: a good working environment, training available, interaction with management, goal oriented.
I liked the professional interaction with coworkers and the opportunities to develop your expertise. Didn't like that some of the project managers were not technically equipped to assist with customers concerns.
Finance (Current Employee), West Kingston, RI – February 5, 2014
Pros: benefits, work life balance
Cons: career path, team collaboration
In terms of work life balance and health benefits, Schneider Electric hits a home run. In terms of compensation, they are well below the outside market, when comparing with similar jobs to CVS, Hasbro, etc. I would recommend senior management to work on career path and development for their front line employees as well as first line managers, as there – more... is very little room for growth, unless you are extremely well connected with headquarters – less
The places i worked at i feel like a team member and joy to come to work each day.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), El Paso, TX – February 5, 2014
Each day is busy and the time will go fast. I learned that each person not the same but you just have to move on and get the task done. My management is like the rest some a great but others like themselves and won't help out. My coworkers are the best they work as a team and make me laugh. The hardest part is not finishing the task on tome they gave – more... us me I like to work overtime to finish the task. I love work for supply because nationwide you always need logistic and will not be out of a job. – less
Executive Assistant, Vice President (Former Employee), LaVergne – January 30, 2014
Pros: great people, always willing to help each other. family values.

I was fortunate to have many years with this company. For most of my years, I had fantastic leadership that was always willing to assist me is my personal development yet gave me room to grow on my own. A great work life balance and a fun inviting environment.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee), Seneca, SC – January 29, 2014
Checking MCC's setting up drives. The co-workers were real helpful and always willing to help you learn. It was hard to Know when quiting time was because you may have to work over on any given day and the management would not let you know till the last minute and that was fine on most days i was looking for overtime but it always seem to fall when – more... i had something planned. – less
Quality Assurance Engineer (Current Employee), West Kingston, RI – January 23, 2014
Cons: s is too big for it's own good. people are numbers and that does not create a good work environment
Worked for a company that was bought out by Schneider. Before =S= took over the focus was on customers, quality and the view was from management down to their teams. i.e keep the teams motivated and happy.
Since =S= bought my company out they have let a lot of talented, hardworking people go and the focus is now from management up. i.e keep my VP, – more... Sr. VP groups happy at the cost of my team starting to fall apart and create a toxic work environment for them. Customer focus and quality have fallen away off due to cost cutting, and cutting out people who knew what they were doing and people who were very customer focused. – less

Project Manager (Former Employee), Hawthorne, NY – January 16, 2014
Pros: career advancement, beautiful building to work in. support staff.
Cons: infrquent salary increases.
My typical day at work was working directly with my client (New York State Department of Transportation) on various established tasks with the goal of completing these tasks within a predetermined timeframe. I took several things away from this job, first and foremost though was taking away the satisfaction you get when you lead a successful effort – more... while pulling together multiple agencies to complete a common goal. I served as a liaison between management from Schneider Electric and my client. My experience with both management teams was a very positive one. Both sets of management afforded me the opportunity to learn and advance my career and knowledge. My co-workers were the group of people that allowed me to be as successful as I have been. One of my main responsibilities of my job was to create a team environment within many agencies. I would not have been successful had it not been for the dedication and vision of my staff and management support team. The most challenging part of my job was to walk the fine line between company and client. It was a part of the job I succeeded with, but always had to be conscious of. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people. An excellent group of professionals with a common goal to succeed. – less
