    Good company, but seeking unrealistic profit

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais (Brazil)

    ProsIn Siemens Brazil the average salary can be higher than smaller companies.

    ConsIt is said that there are carrees plans, but your promotions will be based on how desperately they can't afford to lose you, or the general luck, like most companies.
    Leadership is enforced by the directors, but it mostly depends on how lucky you are to have a good leader.
    You rarely have support for trainning, and most managers will have no respect for your work time, and will not pay you for overtime.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider some carrer guidance for the employees, and take special attention to trainnings.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsFriendly Environment, Business Structure and Career Opportunities

    ConsTalent Recognition, lack of professional training

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs a company is made by its employees, Siemens should strenghten the quality of its employees promoting trainings and taking care of the potential talents Siemens already have, otherwise these talents will leave the company.

    Lots of talented people - Below the average benefits

    Software Developer (Current Employee) Curitiba (Brazil)

    Pros* Lots of very capable people. Most people you speak to are dedicated professionals
    * The majority of coworkers are friendly and willing to help

    Cons* Benefits and salary are below the average. Raises don't happen very often
    * Job security is very low. The company either has new projects for the next year or a lot of people will go through the door.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize your best employees! Increase their exposure to management.

    Great Place to Work

    Manager (Former Employee) São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)

    ProsSiemens is a great place to work. It is a huge company, with excelent growth opportunities, specially for young people. The company invests in training and development of its workforces and has consisten human resources policies.

    ConsManagerial behavior is very heterogeneous. Failure of a manager in following the company's human resources policies and even abusive behavior are often overlooked. Internal politics are very, very strong.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess tolerance to managerial bad behavior.

    Great company with great people in the process of adapting itself to its new size

    Project Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat workplace with nice and talented people. The projects tend to be challenging and different from each other, besides that the employees have the opportunity to work on different areas, from automation and control to basic engineering to software development. Besides that, there is a lot of space to people innovate and try new ways of working, it is encouraged by the company directors.

    ConsThe entry level salary of a junior engineer is not much different from the average salary of a senior engineering which is not much different from the average salary of a team leader, but the responsibilities are very different. Other downside is that the number of employees grown up too much in the last years (about three times in the last two years), so there are few old employees with the great spirit of the company to lead the new employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove the hiring process (higher standards as in the beginning of the company) and improve the feedback/compensation process so that the best people be recognized and compensated for bringing more value to the company. And, of course, continue to take care of the employees, motivate people and proportionate a great work place, because this is a fantastic aspect of the company.
