    I have been working at Siemens Brazil full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It 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 ManagementAdvice

    Consider some carrer guidance for the employees, and take special attention to trainnings.

    I worked at Siemens Brazil

    Pros

    Siemens 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.

    Cons

    Managerial 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 ManagementAdvice

    Less tolerance to managerial bad behavior.

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

    Current Employee - Project Manager

    I have been working at Siemens Brazil

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Improve 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.
