    Pros

    Large multi National which is full of opportunities provided you work hard and apply yourself. Good management / employee relationships.

    Cons

    Very large - you can feel lost at times and communication is often difficult from top to bottom with the message not always getting through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recent global communication with Mr Kaesar was a unique event but showed a willingness to ensure the global messages were heard by all. More of the same but at different senior management levels (I.e. country or sector leads) would also help the communication machine in such a large.business.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Siemens MT is the excellent travel opportunities and the advancement within Siemens' different divisions and not just MT. The place has excellent support structure with regards to colleagues supporting you. Flexible working hours and an understanding management are also excellent features.

    Cons

    Simple things can be made quite complicated when working for Siemens MT as there are a large number of procedures that staff have to follow. This is helped by the fact that there are staff that are there to help you on these tasks.

    I have been working at Siemens

    Pros

    Nice people, cutting edge research and the opportunities to get onboard in a variety of projects in fields like healthcare, industry and productivity softwares. Softball team is a plus!

    Cons

    Really there isn't any noticeable cons for this job. To be very picky, maybe some of the projects are so big that can last for years, and being an intern means you cannot be involved in every stage.
