    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

    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

    Stable, in demand for Services, honest company, focused on training and do things the right way. Opportunity for development is available, travel and reward perks.

    Cons

    Poor career road mapping and development, salary and compensation are kept as a mystery, lower pay versus similar positions elsewhere

    Pros

    Good appreciation for employees, flexibility, work/life balance is great

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to move around. Most ambitious employees eventually jump ship to get better opportunities. Lots of responsibility consolidation (multiple roles). Pay average at best, little recognition. Extremely easy to become another face in the crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and promote within. I am often surprised about new position/roles that just get "announced" without every hearing about this.

    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.

    Pros

    Good working environment..Flexibility in most cases to work from home depending on your manager. Flexibility with work hours depending on your manager. Good vacation policy. Good insurance policies and trying to keep costs down for the employee.

    Cons

    Not really appreciated enough for the number of years you have worked at the company. Salary compensation is not really on par to market. Believe their policy of salary compensation is not based on the market area you actually work in.

    Advice to Management

    Should look into their compensation policies, either through employee compensation surveys, HR and or Manager policies. Even though it is part of the parent company, their policies differ from the parent company.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, flexible hours, always a new challenge. Large number of offices around world make for easy relocation while staying with a team.

    Cons

    Even though PLM makes money, corporate funnels it off for failing manufacturing businesses. Constant hiring and spending freezes makes growth difficult. Corporate parent is on an M&A binge so infrastructure teams are taking a hit.
