I have been working at Siemens full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pay is reasonable. Benefits are about average. Lots of opportunities for learning.

Cons

If you are in the U.S. you are not an equal with your European counterparts. Goal setting and reviews are quite arbitrary. Stating that only a tiny number of people should be rated 4 or 5 totally destroys motivation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think about what your people are doing for you rather than fitting them into a mold.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (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.
