    Pros

    Siemens is a very good company to have as an employer. I was part of a company that was acquired by Siemens and the company did everything in their power to make the integration into Siemens a good and painless one. I worked closely with operations in Germany and found everyone their to be friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed working with them very much. I felt lucky to be a part of such a good team.

    Even after being forced to leave due to the reduction of remote R&D sites, I still look back upon my time at Siemens fondly. The company did everything that they could to make the separation easy on us.

    I have a great deal of respect for everyone at Siemens.

    Cons

    Like all companies, there is localized cronyism, and that should be monitored more closely by corporate to prevent it from adversely affecting the organization

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you did with your Mason Ohio operations.

    Pros

    Der Konzern bietet für seine Beschäftigte ein breit aufgestelltes Betätigungsfeld. Neben guten Entwicklungschancen und der Möglichkeit internationale und multikulturelle Erfahrungen zu sammeln werden faire Gehaltszahlungen geboten.

    Cons

    Das mittlere Management hat sehr große Entscheidungsspielräume. Gerät man an den falschen Vorgesetzten kann dieser jegliche Karrierechancen zu nichte machen.

    Advice to Management

    Das Topmanagement sollte sich mehr Mühe geben damit die Meinungen der normalen Mitarbeiter Gehör finden. Häufig bleibt diese Potential in der mittleren Ebene stecken.
