Rogue management elements in some of the acquired/distant business units create serious lack of teamwork

I worked at Siemens

Pros

Name recognition, exposure to lots of technologies, Siemens has purchasing leverage due to its large size, some Divisions are great to work for.

Cons

HR presence and training is very minimal and contributed in arbitrary and inconsistent management practices. Unhealthy focus on short term financial results. Near zero training budget. Get beyond the 'sweatshop' mentality!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reign in the rogue elements - provide real hands-on leadership!
