    Pros

    Education and investment in employees. This is a great place to start and learn about Consulting. Employees are talented and passionate about the work.

    Cons

    There is a lack of upward mobility and no clear path for promotion. Top performers are not rewarded and can languish, unpromoted for years (even decades)--there is a consistent loss of talent because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clear path to promotion. Reward top performers with more responsibility, challenges and salary increases.

  2. Good company to work for

    Pros

    Lot's of things to learn , friendly environment

    Cons

    They hire interns in large numbers. If they have some kind of training/orientation for them then it will benefit the company as well as the interns in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    The management is good.

  3. Lots of layoffs.

    Pros

    Very hands on internship with real responsibilities and deadlines. It very much gives you a sense of what it is like to work for a large MNC. Coworkers are friendly and inclusive so its easy to meet people.

    Cons

    takes a while to get a laptop and get on the system for new hires. that's my only complaint.

    Pros

    There is a very smart and dedicated team of employees that works for Siemens Medical Solutions. It is easy to see the level of passion and commitment they have to living the mission of finding solutions to improve human health.

    Cons

    There are too many 'chiefs.' Every business unit has a CEO, geographies have a CEO - it's crazy! Once you get in, great. But there is little movement from within. Also, it is all about the numbers instead of applying common sense to a situation.

    Advice to Management

    You have an obligation to develop and retain internal talent. Siemens is at risk of losing many good people because your hiring managers look for the easy fix instead of devoting time to developing an internal employee. You must change this culture! Also, it would bode well to streamline management, have less 'chiefs' but hold people more accountable for the decisions made within the company.

    Pros

    Still the best in technology in medical domain, better and stronger than Philips, especially GE in Innovation!

    Cons

    There are a lot of middle level managers useless and ready to take advantages on employees. There is no much leaderhip in local management. Credits can be taken by managers or some senior colleagues. Collaboration internal and external is a big issue. Employee satisfication rate is low!

    Pros

    The company is big enough that if you are unhappy in your role or with your manager you can switch.

    Cons

    If you want to apply for a new role executive approval is needed for a raise higher than 15%.

    Advice to Management

    Ugh where do I begin?

    Pros

    There were none except maybe their cafe.

    Cons

    1) The entire department is talking behind interns if one doesn't submit work on time or makes any mistake..... I was here for descent challenge but they expect new interns to know everything without any clear instructions..Absolutely brutal.
    2) You better know Excel inside out....above advanced skills to survive here.
    3) If you're not meeting their expectations they will kick you out....this is the first time I ever saw a company kick out interns which i find ridiculous.
    4) The most unprofessional place I have ever seen, Senior Directors and managers cursing out on regular basis but it didn't bother me.
    5) The internship was just horrible especially the work.

    Multinational global company.
    A real experience of how corporate world is.
    Friendly employees.
    Very professional.
    A chance to be exposed to experience in different fields within the company.
    A chance to work internationally.

    Cons

    Very hard daily commute (From Philadelphia).
    Too many protocols to go through before a decision is made (expected).
    Get used to hearing a lot of German from your cube.
