    Pros

    Very hands on internship with real responsibilities and deadlines. It very much gives you a sense of what it is like to work for a large MNC. Coworkers are friendly and inclusive so its easy to meet people.

    Cons

    takes a while to get a laptop and get on the system for new hires. that's my only complaint.

    Pros

    If you want a company that is interested in your personal development, this is the best place to be......The pay does not commensurate the job role but the benefits is far worth it.......

    The pay is not encouraging and no room for people with short term ambitions.......Also as the company is growing employee pay review is not increasing

    Great team - my boss and mentor helped me throughout my internship and have maintained communication with me.

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

    Pros

    Personal use of company car. 2 weeks paid vacation plus 5 floating holidays on top of normal holidays to start. Out on the road to long?... stop and have a meal and get a room on Siemens, no questions asked. Yearly review of management that holds weight on managements review.

    Cons

    Pay raises are slow, but starting pay compensates.. Occasional unplanned OT, but made up for in the weeks I work 30-35 hours and still get paid for 40.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really.. My manager kicks @$$. Not sure for what to change above him...

    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Hoffman Estates, IL

    I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Siemens MI is probably the best team in the entire industry that pioneered technologies in the past but also continues to push the envelope in the future
    - Long term partnerships to key opinion leaders
    - great benefits and good work / life balance

    Cons

    - current management team lacks vision and leadership experience and is destroying what was build up over the last 10 years
    - lack of decision making and micro management delays projects and drives the best people out the door
    - lost a lot of the customer focus we had back 5 years ago when we were celebrating some of our biggest achievements and successes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pack your stuff up and move back to Germany!
