    I have been working at Siemens full-time

    Pros

    Quality of the people and culture here, the commitment to the long term future of Siemens. Genuinely caring for its people, their wellbeing and providing flexibility. Huge investment and commitment to UK infrastructure, the development of skills and the local community.

    Cons

    To be ultra critical - we sometimes get over wrapped up in our processes (being so thorough!) but this is similar to many global companies I guess.
    Some sites are further advanced in their digital transformation than others.
    You need to be the sort of person who likes taking ownership/accountability and be part of the development of Siemens.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in digital solutions to keep pace with the market.

    Cons

    Process oriented organization ( probably this is an issue with any multinational companies). But feels the management is very well aware of this issue & is already in the journey of making the company more agile.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been fortunate to work for Siemens for the last 7 years and I have been afforded so many wonderful opportunities to develop and grow in my role and as a person.

    I love the people I work with and the trust my manager and team have in me to do my role. We have a clear vision and roadmap for success and are constantly being challenged to strive for more and to improve what we do.

    I have never worked anywhere else like it, for me it's much more than a job.

    Cons

    In the past we have been slow to change, but I really see momentum and focus on keeping us ahead of the competition.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Siemens has a great company culture and approach to flexible working and there truly is a lot of emphasis on work life balance and well-being. There are lots of opportunities to develop and grow for those who are willing to grasp them and with such a broad, diverse organisation you can take your career anywhere. The company is doing lots of exciting things and everyone truly seems proud to work for Siemens, and I too am proud to work for Siemens.

    Cons

    Outsourced IT can sometimes make things difficult. Also decision making can be slow because of unnecessary additional approval steps.

    Pros

    Siemens is a fantastic employer and offers a huge amount of career diversity. Siemens are forward thinking with a genuine focus on it's people. Ownership culture underpins our organisation - it's not just a 'program' or another 'initiative' - I feel empowered to make decisions, be creative and operate autonomously. Siemens has a real focus on diversity and I am offered flexibility to ensure my personal commitments/ situation fit with my working pattern. I have been offered excellent development opportunities since joining Siemens 7 years ago - given the breadth of our organisation I genuinely believe Siemens can offer a career for life. There's a saying in our organisation about being proud to be Siemens- I most certainly am proud to work for such a great organisation.

    Cons

    Siemens is an organisation that evolves and changes all of the time- for some this provides instability but for me I see this as opportunity. The external world is changing so rapidly- any organisation wanting to keep up with the changing world needs to be agile and adaptable.
