    No we don't make wieners !

    Anonymous (Current Employee)

    ProsGood company with decent pay and good social benefits but be ready for constant reorganization.

    ConsThe main way the company grows is by acquiring other companies. Because of this you need to be ready for constant change to the reporting structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecause of the mass of the company and number of employees all over the world, communication needs to be key between upper management and employees. The current situation can be greatly improved.

    Schneider Electric - Solar Canada (Vancouver)

    Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee) Vancouver, BC

    ProsBetter benefits than other smaller companies.

    ConsThe new management has a very weak understanding of solar power electronics R&D. Despite of this fact, they are active in calling important decisions, which unfortunately is reflected in poor performance. Micromanagement in another negative factor which isolated few principal engineers which their voices are reduced to zero and they chose a political correctness instead.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVPs and Managers: empower the Engineering since your expertise and experience is very low. Better focus on marketing, company's vision and less how to lead the Engineering engine. In more than 10 years of experience in this company, this is the worst management performance I've ever witnessed. I hope this will be corrected.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
