    Pros

    Worked there as a Graduate Software Tester. Great people to work with. Amazing work culture and office environment. Very conveniently located in Oxford next to the station. Good travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Career progression very limited. Need to work for quite a few years before you're considered for a promotion. Not paid very well too.

    Advice to Management

    Have a good relationship with your staff and encourage them to grow in their careers instead of simply plodding along.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    - Effective shop floor management.
    - Introduction to 5S and EHS techniques.
    - Continuous improvement activities like identification of overhead and jib cranes, positive priming of the motor providing water to the paint booth etc. were examples of the vast exposure I received.

    Cons

    - Improper documentation of purchase orders.
    - Too many hierarchical levels amongst production engineers and managers. This makes it more difficult to differentiate between roles and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Try to define roles amongst engineers in a more efficient way. E.g. An electrical engineer should not be doing the job of an industrial engineer.
