I worked at Siemens

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    Highly intelligent work force, good working atmosphere, good benefits

    Cons

    Lack of real leadership talent at most levels of the organization. Technically proficient managers are abundant but managers who can lead people are scarce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Global companies should encourage and promote global leaders - not just people that look and talk like senior management in Erlangen
