    Pros

    Siemens is a multinational engineering company. It offers an extremely wide spectrum of roles for professionals. Aside from the engineering, research development work you would expect, there are are plenty of roles in finance, legal, training, marketing, logistics, manufacturing, organizational psychology, quality, consulting, general management and myriad other disciplines. The company is very good about helping you move between your areas of interest. If you ask the right people (i.e. not necessarily your line manager), you will find support in the form of in-house training, allowances for tuition, leadership development programs and so on.

    Cons

    While some international companies try to achieve a kind of global culture with a similar workplace vibe world-wide (think Google), conditions at Siemens vary wildly with the location. The emphasis is on making the most of local conditions, i.e.: * avoid the worker toilets at Chinese factory sites. * if you're aiming for a position in the US, count on minimum-level benefits and insurance, and don't be surprised if one day you're given notice (fired) by telephone * if you're working on a local contract in China, count on limited-term contracts and bare-minimum benefits On the other hand, if you're planning on working at a European regional HQ office in an administrative job, be prepared to enjoy great cafeteria food, sports facilities, flexible time-off and other nice perks. So It's very hard to generalize work conditions at this global company.

    Advice to Management

    Having just finished writing the "Cons", my advice would be to increase employees' sense of belonging to Siemens by guaranteeing a minimum level of quality for employees worldwide. e.g. "we will never fire you by phone" or "our policy is to offer every employee re-training before terminating their position" or even just "all our cafeterias worldwide offer healthy food options for all levels of employee".
