    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 Management

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

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

    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 Management

    Less tolerance to managerial bad behavior.
