    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.

    I have been working at Siemens

    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 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Solid benefits
    - Stable (I've never head of a layoff, even from people that have been there for decades)
    - Good work-life balance, no one will breathe down your neck to make you work, that must come from within you.
    - Perfect job for someone in their early 40s with family responsibilities and impending college costs.

    Cons

    It is a Very big company, which means:
    - Difficult to know if you are really having an impact.
    - Difficult to stand out and move up. You won't win friends with innovative methods, there is already a triple-reviewed standard workflow that must be followed.
    - If you are young, hungry, and motivated, this is not the best place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Design decisions should come from the bottom-level people directly, not the mid-level managers.

    I worked at Siemens as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Incredible work environment, friendly and helpful people all around the company, interesting job, and a lot of room for improvement.
    Very nice infrastructure, with cafeteria, clean and bright environment, open concept.
    No defined offices or seats, anybody can seat wherever they want.

    Cons

    Work can get a bit monotonous. It is always the same thing everyday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to use interns for more complicated tasks. Sometimes I felt I was bored with the job I was put to do.
