Pros

Brand Name. The only factor to work for SIEMENS AG is to earn the brand name, and that what every one else is doing. The the employee turnover ratio is very high.
There is no professional growth. Knowledge is neither transfered nor shared at any levels of organization. Salaries aren't that competitive either.
So employee just earn the brand name and use it for next better career jump!

Cons

Sheer Nepotism by higher management.

Advice to Management

I would like to advise SIEMENS HQ to have a look what's going on their regional head offices @ HR front.

    Pros

    Work flexibility, i.e. no one micro-managing you and the ability to work independently. Interesting products. The ability to work from a home office, a company car.

    Cons

    Pervasive culture of blame, everyone is out to cover their butt and blame someone else if something goes wrong. Which is odd because generally speaking things go fairly well. The incentive structure is set up the measure some departments productivity and to increase that metric it often sets one department against another. In other words we spend more time "in-fighting" then servicing our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture by getting rid of the prime offenders (i.e. the old school, senior managers) and change to incentive structure so there is no incentive to perform at the expense of other departments.


  2. A great place to experience the global network of innovation

    Pros

    A very innovative company with a great brand and many very bright people. An excellent learning environment that is global in nature. If you want to get a truely global experience this is the place. You also will get in depth knowlege of sectors including Industry, Energy or Medical. The products are truely world leading. The opportunity for someone early in their career to be trained and groomed are exceptional.

    Cons

    Matrix structure causes it to be slow moving and its never clear who is leading the charge.
    Often people spend more time reporting internally the same information over and over in different formats to the various stakeholders. It is inefficient and at the end of the day, the leadership is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace and live the new vertically focused structure. Give full power to the sector leads.
