I worked at Siemens

Pros

Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. There will never not be an reason not to be busy. Great for people who love to work. The salary is within acceptable ranges and Most management is pleasent enough to deal with.

Cons

Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. The have rules laid out for how you should do your job. There is no real room for error or slow days in their minds. If they pay you for 40 hrs and work only comes to 30hrs, they will eventually find 4 people in the same boat and remove one to spread the work around. This makes for a somewhat tense desire to find work by the more "go getting" employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not everything worker do can be arrange in such a way to have standards that don't change. You can't just expect every job to go as planned

    Pros

    Siemens is an extremely large organization with an extensive portfolio. Hence if you have an interest in exploring different job opportunities based on region, product or responsibility this is a great place to work. The work culture is very dependent on the business unit but overall it is pretty good. The executive management has been pretty good and there are good leadership and development programs available for career growth and progression.

    Cons

    The biggest downside to working for Siemens Medical is the pay. It is not very competitive and hence it has to rely on work culture and fostering the Siemens spirit to retain employees. There is a pretty large middle management layer that is very conservative and on the experienced side. This invariably leads to limited opportunities for young professionals and innovation and this leads to frustration and loss of talented employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work towards establishing a lean management structure. Foster growth and innovation by providing more opportunities to youth and focusing more on diversity. Pay more attention to accountability and results achieved as opposed to perception.

    Pros

    High potential for movements horizontally. I joined Siemens primarily to be able to get experience across other industries. Although after 4 yrs it has not happened, I have seen many others and I feel the right time will come. Given its continuing success, I'm also quite proud to be part of the organisation.

    Cons

    Get lost in the noise. It is such a large organisation, it is easy to feel lost now and then. That is to say, you feel like your impact on the organisation is so small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many cooks in the kitchen. Decision at BU level needs to trump.
