I worked at Siemens

Pros

- Fairly good benefits, not phenomenal but OK
- Well known company although you WILL get teased about the name
- Ample opportunities to take advantage of training courses

Cons

- Being bought by Siemens may spell death to the company you knew
- If the company business model doesn't match Siemens, expect a lot of pain
- They talk the talk of recognition but unless you are Jesus Christ (and German) you won't be getting any accolades.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Before you decide to buy a company maybe some additional due diligence would be in order as to not ruin an otherwise functioning company and cause a huge loss in money and employment.

    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    Interesting product groups with engaging senior leaders
    Compensation is pretty good but not exceptional
    Reward top talent well, have begun to put an emphasis on recruiting newer, smarter grads

    Cons

    Large hierarchy, hard to move up the rankings due to very structured system; upper management can be distant from the normal employee
    Some parts of the company lacking the excitement factor, a lot of older employees who seem part of the system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the work with recruiting fresh talent and making the workplace more dynamic. Remove some of the structured feel to the company, promote collaboration between groups, and reward hard workers with a structured and engaging view of their upward mobility in the company

    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    It's great because you develop a holistic understanding of how the technology sector works and you become a really good program tester and debugger which comes in handy while applying for other software engineering positions at firms.

    Cons

    The work can feel a little menial at times and there's not much to do around there in the city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and i'm sure that you'll attract top talent to your firm. I wish you all the very best!
