Intern

Intern (Former Employee)
Zug (Switzerland)

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

ProsHighly international company with a diverse spectrum of businesses. You can see and feel exciting opportunities at hand at any time.
I worked as an intern among senior management and I was welcomed warmly as a full member the team, regardless of my status. The working hours and overtime compensation programs were very attractive.

ConsSiemens is a very large coorporation and the hierachical structures that are present in many parts of the company can sometimes prevent dynamic development and out-of-the-box thinking. This can sometimes lead to a bit of frustration, especially by technical employees who are not inside the management processes.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to flatten the hierachy.
