Current Employee - Marketing Communications Manager

I have been working at Schneider Electric full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I'm never bored at work, and have lots of opportunities to learn new skills and meet new people. I'm proud of the company's "energy access" and sustainable development programs, its focus on green products, and its leading edge energy management software and solutions.

Cons

I and many of my colleagues are paid less than we should be -- some of us considerably less. Everyone I know loves our CEO, but the executives under him are often unpredictable, unreasonable and unkind.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reevaluate your approach to identifying and retaining talented employees. The attitude seems to be, "If you think you're worth more, prove it by getting another job offer." The reality is that nobody I work with would go out and get a competing offer just to negotiate a higher salary. If we get a better offer, we're gone.

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

    Pros

    +Usually easy
    +Flexible work environment
    +Internally promoted
    +Salary review each year with normal raises (3-5%)

    Cons

    +There is no overtime and the compensation for time over 40hrs is very poor
    +Raises are small. Normally 3-5%. You have to be a genius to get a 5% or work very hard. Not worth it
    +Recognition in this company is handed out like parents encouraging their children's horrible drawings. People who deserve recognition normally don't get it at all or alone. Other useless people join in the recognition
    +HR processes and technologies (Time Entry/Calendar Entry/Email/Etc.) are VERY poor. We use Lotus Notes for email for God's sake. Enough said.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more clearly defined procedures and processes. The rules change on a monthly basis and there is too much inconsistency.
