    Great place to work

    Business Improvement (Current Employee) Newcastle, England

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

    ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

    Very Good

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sheffield, England

    ProsOne 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.

    ConsSimple 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.

    Large, stable company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTechnology leader, established support structure for career development, ability to relocate internationally. Depth of knowledge very good in most countries. Good training opportunities exist.

    ConsCompany politics can be counterproductive at times, very process driven, not very nimble. Frequent global restructuring tends to create a significant amount of inward focus.
