    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

    Dynamic and quite interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Procedures from HQ can destroy local entites - lack of flexibility hurts.
    Restructurisation made without any moral behaviour - fairing people on the gas station after years of working together.

    More personal approach to team members would change a lot.
