Company Culture

There was not a culture which valued and fostered good communication. I spent most of my time unsure as to who exactly I worked for.

Support from management

I was given little to no real training. Management spent a month on vacation, and there was not a back-up assigned to do his job while he was away.

Teamwork

Our crew had some teamwork, but with the blame game being popular, this did not extend far.

Freedom to work independently

I was free to work independently, and once I had the tools, this worked well. However, my lack of training early on made this difficult to do effectively.

Internal Communication

Internal communication was lacking. The jobsite was a game of pass-the-buck.

Gender Equality

Our crew often objectified women, though not to their faces.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The older colleagues, from what I saw, did not experience any sort of ageism.

Overall compensation for your work

They paid well for easy work. The work-life balance was not so good though...

Work-Life Balance

At this job, you could be transferred to a different job at any time, and this made making plans in advance difficult.

Company Image

They were really good at keeping their image up.

Job Security

I was not trained well, which set me up for failure. Hence, I changed jobs.

Inclusive / Diverse

There was no overt racism, except for one problem person.

Company Culture

Schneider has good marketing that says what a great culture they have but the main culture is a CYA type. Too may politics to be successful.

Teamwork

Divisions do not work well together. Sales credit gets cloudy when you get other groups involved so most divisions operate as individual profit centers.

Freedom to work independently

You had better be able to work independently at Schneider.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They are on a clear youth movement.

Office / Work Environment

Little interaction in the field offices. Some are better than others.

Inclusive / Diverse

Multinational company allows you to communicate with people from all over the world.

What I like about the company

If they could get their divisions to work together, they offer compelling products and solutions. Good benefits and pay and a reasonable work life balance.

What I dislike about the company

Everyone is protecting their own cheese. Little interaction among divisions.
