    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.

    When it was SDRC it was a great place to work, but now it's become a Corporation that only cares for it's Executives.

    Pros

    Convenient location, nice atmosphere, for the most part great people but you still have your troublemakers like every place does.

    Cons

    Low yearly merit increases, women are the minority here, certain benefits offered but they won't approve you to use, no career development, no promotions, they will change your title, but won't increase your salary. No company outings i.e. company picnic, Christmas party. Little or no incentives, bonus's or recognitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize all of your employees when they are doing a good job, not only when something is wrong. Know and understand their job position, what they do, what they are supposed to do and what they are not supposed to do.

    I worked at Siemens PLM Software

    Pros

    They do pay well- they have to considering you will probably have a nervous breakdown working there.

    Cons

    Gossipy mean spirited people. Management totally clueless and workload balancing is a concept foreign to this company. This is a place where you better watch everything you do, and trust NOONE. Keep all your personal business to yourself because if you don't, trust me, those you think you can trust are just sharpening the sword waiting for the right time to stab you in the back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and just start fresh. Sounds drastic but probably the best solution. This place needs a complete overhaul.

    If you need a totally integrated system (i.e. triangulation between the requirements, risk and the product you will need the power of Teamcenter.
    Stay as close as you can to OOTB capability.

    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.

    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.
