    I have been working at Siemens

    Pros

    Massive company, plenty of room to grow and move around

    Cons

    Easy to be silo'd into one function. They don't really move people between functions. Barely trains their employees (even the professionals in the rotational programs) aside from cross-training a from a coworker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in training and be aware of what the Millennials are looking for in an employer. If you don't change, you will find you have half your staff retiring in the next 10 years and no one to fill any mid-management positions.

    Pros

    Smart people, solving real world problem, good work life balance

    Siemens (especially R&D divisions) is full of smart people who are top experts in their fields. For starters with engineering background it's a great place to learn technology and business. It also has a friendly company culture with nice and friendly people. If you are interested, you can learn a lot how big corporation function and pick up quite a few people skills. Work life balance is great. Very internationally diverse so you can meet people from all over the world.

    Cons

    Benefits, slow pace, processes

    Like most big corporations, there are too many management layers but it's been improving. Benefits is only OK and first-line engineers definitely deserves more. For the four years I've been here I've seen two major re-organizations. During each many people left for other places. Yet there didn't seem much change that address employee's concerns. Each year financial targets are cascaded all the way from CEO down to each employee and employee's voice has been hardly heard or cared about. There has been almost no support to guide personal career growth. Lately there's a lot of focus on processes and it's very distracting. Employees gets projects assigned and have to fill in time cards for every hour to record where they spent on each day. Managers will chase after you if anything has gone over the budget or slow - this is just plain wrong for R&D environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat first-line employees fairly with better benefits. Listen to their voices. Empower them to be creative. Have dedicated people take care of processes.
