ConsIf you want to apply for a new role executive approval is needed for a raise higher than 15%.

Advice to Senior ManagementUgh where do I begin?

ProsGreat overall work environment. Overall great networking opportunities and excellent overall collaborative effort with some of the most talented colleagues in the world.

It was a very desirable experience. All the colleagues were very nice and helpful.

Electronics R&D Intern (Current Employee)
Knoxville, TN

I have been working at Siemens

ProsWorking time is very flexible. The managers are very helpful and kindly communicating with the employees. The job is quite stable, as Siemens usually has one big plan made for 10 years. People can benefit from the enough time to make schedule and design reviews. Besides, as a giant in every important fields, Siemens runs quite stably, and there is no worry about losing a design job during tough economy environment.

ConsFor some people, it is not that desirable working place since it's very stable. New ideas will not be very quite implemented since there are too many issues to be considered in a giant company...

Advice to Senior ManagementGet more technical people to support, such as the support on CAD tools.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
