Since Working at Schneider I have been heavily invested from a training and coaching.
There is always something to new to learn and a new changing product, solution or service that we can do better or is not thought of.


I have been allowed to be tenacious and ambitious with regards to the Global Marketing process to evolve the tolls and systems involved. To train and engage with all areas of the business from global operations through to external sales.


To have multiple targets and ever evolving strategies and KPI's for varying products ,offers and solutions.
Pros
Vast career opportunities internationally
Cons
Large and impersonal corporate company

Similar to Parmley Graham taking sales enquiries and following up quotation, liaising wit suppliers, speaking to clients any major project opportunities and general admin duties.
Learnt that be focus and have the determination and drive to succeed the challenges.

Excellent management and co working, very friendly environment and helpful.

The hardest part of job is to deliver daily sales target and to follow up quotation.

The most enjoyable part of this job is winning the sales and enjoyable co-worker.
Pros
ripetitive role
Cons
short lunch break

Not very kind to anyone, only want to buy and then close small company's. Management will act like a white board and forget all the hard work and human beings obtained.
Pros
Pay is good
Cons
Non human management.

This used to be a fairly happy place to work, however the current management are doing their utmost to turn it into an environment where no employee can feel that their job is secure if even the slightest misdemeanor is committed.
They are totally paranoid that even the slightest transgression by any employee will lead to a complete retraction of work by their only customer in Scotland, that the sternest disciplinary measures are meted out where, in fact, a verbal warning or even a word in the offender's ear would be sufficient to ensure that the situation would never arise again.

These individuals in management are ruining what would otherwise be a great job with this attitude.

Most co-workers are gentlemen of the highest regard, who would not hesitate to assist a colleague who was struggling.
Pros
Good pay and sickness, pension conditions
Cons
Management
