    Pros

    Casual working culture, flexible hours most of the year, low turnover. Generally working to improve processes.

    Cons

    Mediocre training and quality processes. Not as much innovation as there needs to be, or investment in core competencies. Not much of a career ladder currently, except for management track.

    Advice to Management

    Some management techniques (e.g. mandatory overtime for everyone) are ineffective and hurt morale. Strategy seems muddled, and growth focus seems to be on acquisitions

    Pros

    There is always exciting work going on in the organization. The products keep evolving to provide better quality and better functionality to the end customers. So, for people who wants to take initiative and put more effort and learn, there is no scarcity of work.

    Cons

    People who work hard and take up more work, some times gets unnoticed and don't get paid enough. The longer you work with the company even with good ratings, the lesser salary you get when compared to marked trend. You will be surprised to know that a less capable person with less experience who got hired recently may get higher salary than what you get.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the loyatlty and take corrective actions for people who are loyal and still maintain solid performance ratings.

    Pros

    So long as you met or exceeded your customers expectations, management allowed employees a great deal of flexibility in both hours & location of work. They also put a great deal of emphasis on knowledge sharing. Invaluable for even the most seasoned veterans when dealing with a product suite as large & complex as teamcenter.

    Cons

    I can only attest to my small corner of the global Siemens plm world, but I found that I, as a woman, was paid considerably less than my counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    They may want to proactively seek out & rid themselves of participants in "the good ole boys" club. Or sooner than later they will find themselves losing their technically talented female workforce to employers that see them as valuable assets.

    Pros

    The people are pleasant to work with, but sometimes you can be really isolated. Many locations. Lots of room to learn if you find a good mentor.

    Cons

    Low wages. Upward movement is unlikely, you'll be stuck doing the same thing for even a decade before you realize how much time has passed. Older workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally with meaningful promotions. You'll lose your best talent to companies willing to pay decent wages.
