    Pros

    No micro management. Lets the customer decided direction. good affordable insurance, generous time off policy. The management works with you to help further your career and is generally available.

    Cons

    when moving to another position, pay does not increase according to what others are being paid. standardized hardware across company does not work for all positions. some require higher powered, larger systems.

    Advice to Management

    Pay. Pay. Pay.

    Pros

    Great culture, high performance is rewarded. Adequate resources are provided, goals are challenging but reasonable. The business is in a sustainable environment with a good future outlook. Salary is decent, and bonus is achievable. They invest a lot in R&D to keep a good portfolio going into the future. Morale seems to be universally good across differing SBU's and the europeans (especially from Germany) have a good opinion of the US teams.

    Cons

    often times there is little opportunity for advancement - not too many people want to leave so that makes for a lot of competition on open roles. They are an engineering company at heart so in order to really advance, it is easier if you are an engineer by degree. Sometimes you must take lateral positions in order to get the background of experience they want for more senior roles.

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on the importance of the marketing function. Sometimes it feels like the executive management team feels like marketing is a necessary evil rather than a value add.

    Pros

    I joined Siemens few days ago but I can tell you with past 24 plus years of working only in companies across the globe that, this is the company from where I am going to retire. They have the best technology at work does not matter in which division you work they have best technology at work.
    People are very friendly and share knowledge with each other… the Team work in real sense.
    Management are very friendly and open for ideas all the time. I just love working for the Siemens.

    Cons

    Getting familiar to the Hi Tech working environment.Just Kidding ...I am pro technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing already.
