Overall a great place to work!

Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at Siemens

ProsSiemens is a huge company and therefore provides almost unlimited opportunities for career development and for promotion / advancement.

ConsWhile there are huge opportunities for advancement due to the sheer size of the company, obtaining some of the opportunities requires a LOT of effort and willingness to put in huge amounts of hours to get noticed by someone at or above a certain level. While the top and top- middle management, and especially HR, certainly espouse the merit based pay system, continuous feedback, performance process, and high performance culture, the reality is that the day to day line managers aren't getting the message, and often recognize seniority and experience over performance, talent, and potential.
