I have been working at Siemens

Pros

Siemens is involved in technogies that have a positive global impact. Decent benefits, nice co-workers. By and large employees are professional, knowledgable and willing to help their co-workers educate themselves. Technical training is readily available. There are opportunities to transfer between divisions or live and work in other countries.

Cons

Siemens globally has too many employees, divisions and business units. Employees are treated as just one of 400,000. Organizational structure is flat leaving little opportunity for advancement. Salaries are below similar positions at other companies. Resources are scarce while projects are abundant, leaving employees to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Work life balance suffers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop talking about how employees are valued and start showing it with higher salaries, bonuses, advancement opportunties, etc. Give your businesses the people and resources they need to support the profitable growth you want.
