I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good job security.
OK pay.
Good benefits.
Good work environment.
Projects are challenging.
Great co-workers.

Cons

Big mess internally. Organization is not well defined and it changes frequently.
Roles are not clearly defined and work loads are very unbalanced.
Employee performance is evaluated based on silly targets, rather than focusing on what really matters to make your department/company successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of all the useless bureaucracy.
Make it easier for employees to do productive work.
Boost up morale by rewarding individuals based on their performance, and not on global success.

    Former Employee - Procurement Intern in Pine Brook, NJ

    I worked at Siemens as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Had a knowledgable manager that was able to teach me basic business and procurement skills. Big name company that will help propel you into other jobs in the industry.

    Cons

    Nepotism, Nepotism, Nepotism. It was a miracle that I landed this internship considering I had no internal connections. Procurement organization pays interns low wages, while finance interns receive much better pay. I was a prime candidate for the Supply Chain Leadership Development program, but was not selected (most likely due to nepotism).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If interns are high performing, give them first consideration for entry level positions.
