    I have been working at Siemens full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a well run organization. It is very hard to get in, in my opinion that gives me more confidence that they don't just hire any guy off the street. I have an unbelievable resume.

    Cons

    I wish we had a local website and could feel a little more small townish at times.

    I have been working at Siemens as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    It is a company that wants you to ask questions, look for problems, make suggestions for improvement and best of all, they reward you for it!

    Cons

    Siemens is a very large company so a lot of the processes take longer than many companies. But Siemens being so large is also a great Pro.

    I have been working at Siemens as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay for an intern, Relaxed atmosphere, non-obtrusive management, relaxed dress code, good people.

    Cons

    Training left something to be desired; you are left having to learn on the job. It can take a while to get really started here. There are times when "input" is more readily availible than "Answers".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't change much. Fewer meetings, I guess. In fact, I think the one major issue is that Siemens puts too much on their managers.

    I have been working at Siemens

    Pros

    Great benefits. Smart, serious, professional colleagues and management. Also, they allowed autonomy in performing your job without the micro-management that is prevalent in many large corporations.

    Cons

    Since it is such a large company, was sometimes difficult to navigate the correct paths to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All upper management should put a little more effort into providing knowledge and a more basic understanding of the labyrinth of the company's sales objectives and operational structure.

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

    Pros

    Treats their employees fairly well within the technology group. Very good work life balance in many cases. Siemens has been committed to creating and fostering a culture and working environment that will promote and encourage new younger talent while also ensuring the adaptability of its more senior/longer tenured employees don't feel pressure to hit the road.

    Cons

    If you have been with the company a long time and started at the bottom, its sometimes hard to be competitive with colleagues who have come in at more senior now equivalent positions.
    The company restructures every 3 years which sometimes gets frustrating and there is sometimes a lack of sufficient communications relevant to the impacts of employee groups.
    Senior positions in the US are often filled within the Americas are sometimes filled with delegates from HQ, rather trying to promote within or recruit talent within the Americas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more competitive with ensuring your longer tenured top talent is retained.
