    I worked at Siemens as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Incredible work environment, friendly and helpful people all around the company, interesting job, and a lot of room for improvement.
    Very nice infrastructure, with cafeteria, clean and bright environment, open concept.
    No defined offices or seats, anybody can seat wherever they want.

    Cons

    Work can get a bit monotonous. It is always the same thing everyday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to use interns for more complicated tasks. Sometimes I felt I was bored with the job I was put to do.

    Current Employee - Design Engineer in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Solid benefits
    - Stable (I've never head of a layoff, even from people that have been there for decades)
    - Good work-life balance, no one will breathe down your neck to make you work, that must come from within you.
    - Perfect job for someone in their early 40s with family responsibilities and impending college costs.

    Cons

    It is a Very big company, which means:
    - Difficult to know if you are really having an impact.
    - Difficult to stand out and move up. You won't win friends with innovative methods, there is already a triple-reviewed standard workflow that must be followed.
    - If you are young, hungry, and motivated, this is not the best place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Design decisions should come from the bottom-level people directly, not the mid-level managers.

    I worked at Siemens as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent company to implement the knowledge that you have developed at university. Furthermore, it also provides a good work-life balance as the company has five working days from Monday to Friday. Therefore, you can relax on weekends and have fun.
    Finally, you get an amazing opportunity to hone your skills and also experience the work environment of a reputable company like Siemens.

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid and there were only few opportunities to play a critical part in company's operations.
