Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 16 February 2018
Difficult place to work in due the political chalanges and empire building throughout the senior management levels.
Good diversity of employees & integration. Very capable & dedicated teams of good people.
SE Internal Business Units (BU) are difficult to integrate to provide a totoal solution therefore margins are erroded through xBU inefficiencies.
nice clean working environment, close to shopping mall & train station
Long hours, travel could be a royal pain, Not enough car parking spaces, Management Politics, Career advancement limited in middle to lower rnaks, the SE 5 star rated building is uncomfortable ... hot in summer and cold in winter
Senior Submission Manager (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 10 December 2017
Management and business unit structure is fragmented, making it very difficult to pull together winning bids across multiple Business Units. Australian operation is more aligned to transactional rather than project business.
Methods / process / industrial engineer (Former Employee) – Brisbane QLD – 18 July 2017
A typical day would be busy but organised. I am only in my current position because Iwas encouraged at Schneider to improve and challenge myself. I started as a supervisor and worked my way up to being an integral part of the methods team. I worked for several bosses that were more like mentors than managers. This is the reason I stayed 15 years.
Worked here as a temp and really enjoyed the role - learned a lot and developed my skills greatly in a short space of time. Many aspects of the role which kept it interesting. Large team in an office of about 50 people. I would have happily continued with the role and would look to do a similar role in future.
Manager (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA – 10 July 2017
Reasonable employer good salary, too frequent changes in structure, and hence redundancies. I would work there again if given the chance, Chance to improve your skills with internal training course but have found them little benefit securing me work, due to the fact they are not nationally accredited courses., this is a shame as the content is of a high standard and relevant to today's business world.
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Notting Hill VIC – 26 June 2017
The management are lacking in leadership, direction and drive to succeed. They appear to be unaware of market drivers and the direction the market is heading, which would explain why they can not execute a successful sales strategy.
It was de-motivating working in this environment and it lead to very low moral and no job satisfaction.
I was glad to leave
Lots of potential if they can get their act together
To much control from corporate and a overall lack of freedom to one's job
Its nice when the people that run the company care just as much about you as you do, excellent people management. Also a plus having an employer that is looking for more ways to go green and save the environment, overall a great workplace to foster imagination and development.
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Malaga WA – 2 November 2016
Was a PM for ten years. Early on learnt quiet a bit. But latter acquisitions brought in some dummies so they're losing there way a little. They have bought so many companies now that it's hard for everyone to know all the stuff they have. If they ever manage to master that their portfolio is truly amazing.
