    Pros

    Good working environment. Above average Salary. Great Benefits. Fantastic coworkers

    Cons

    The company is too big to share internal information with different business units. Siemens have been growing thru buying small companies, which makes information sharing very challenging. Standardization of processes and procedures is slow.

    I have been working at Siemens Energy & Automation as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. They will let you take classes and will not stop you from getting an MBA/MS for advancement. You can ask most people for help and almost everyone is kind and helpful. Siemens hires people for their talent and skills. I have seen other places where management hires employees based on their personal appearances. Here, they expect to get work done.

    Cons

    The work environment is sometimes little stressful. Employees are scared of making mistakes. Independent projects.
