    I have been working at Siemens PLM Software full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Over the span of more than a decade, I have got the opportunities to work with smart people globally, with most of them becoming my friends. Our customers are interesting, challenging, and their projects got me to keep educating myself and increasing the width of my field of knowledge. Life and career balance can be achieved most of the time. Improvements at all levels are starting to pick up pace.

    Cons

    There is a need to build own career path and create own opportunities. Help and / or guidance from managers in this effort is an extreme rare currency. There are months where working late and having late night conference calls becomes the norm. Improvements at all levels are still happening at a slow pace that could be frustrating at times.

    I worked at Siemens PLM Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity. Some very talented people.

    Cons

    Culture seemed strained to me. Work/life balance seemed off. Very highly demanding. Little training. Technical documentation and support is weak. Lots of travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaving people alone for long periods of time in their home offices and then asking them to go out into the field and perform highly challenging work does not seem like a good business model to me.

    Great if you are looking for stability and challenges, not so much if you want any upward mobility

    I have been working at Siemens PLM Software full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very little turnover, plenty of work to do and sufficient opportunity to learn new things if you get on the right project. The people are generally very talented and great to work with. Salary and benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Very easy to get stuck in a rut and if you are a good performer management is only too happy to have you continue to do that for the rest of your career. Promotions are extremely rare. As with most large companies, don't expect more than a few percentage point raise every year regardless of how good you are or how hard you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue about career development. Promote and provide rotation and growth opportunities, especially for your best people or you will lose them. Learn what burnout means and what to do about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees should be encouraged or even forced to move around the company or work on different initiatives.

    Pros

    Good people, good benefits, part of the Siemens brand. Good work / life balance, competitive products. Implementing better training for professional development.

    Cons

    Lack strategic vision at times, some career paths have better growth than others. May not be the company if you are looking for quick and nimble changes in strategic or tactical plans.

    Very large company, problems with establishing goals for those they acquire.

    I have been working at Siemens PLM Software

    Pros

    6% 401K match, the brand Siemens can open doors for new sales.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, and solutions overlap (after acquisitions), political challenges working internally with other groups and sales force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you have a strategy for the company you acquire; Adding it to your portfolio is not strategic if you don't fund it and don't have a team that wants to sell it.
