    Former Employee - Engineer in Madrid (Spain)
    Former Employee - Engineer in Madrid (Spain)

    I worked at Siemens as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Office culture is the best one around, thanks to great company policies, continuously looking to improve.
    Bear in mind my job was located in Spain, and as an intern.
    But I spoke to long-time employees, that had also been located elsewhere, and they seemed to be quite content.

    Cons

    Well, I can't find any! You are going to find destructive people everywhere, so you may stumble upon someone that drives you mad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!
    Respect the employees, help them, let them know what's up, why things need to be done the way they do.
