    Pay more attention to the reviews of workers. Do not just read the data in the table.

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

    Pros

    Seem to have a good presence on the PLM space in every market vertical
    Say they are interested in advancing your career and give planning tools to assist in doing so.
    Many long time employees with lots of knowledge. and willing to help.
    Healthcare offerings are very good.
    Compensation has been decent but it's really a black-hole of what your job title should pay.

    Cons

    They acquire companies but don't have a plan of how to integrate them into product. Even after several years later.
    Plenty of training opportunities. however most of them are web based and getting the time to take the training is difficult.
    No defined career paths.
    Sometimes difficult to find technical information
    Many in upper management have iphones but everyone else has to get a blackberry. Though they are starting to roll out the galaxy s4 if you have business justification. This isn't a complaint or praise about iphones/android/blackberry. Its management saying one thing is needed or necessary for them to do their job efficiently but not for the rest of company.

    Current Employee - Product Engineer in Milford, OH

    I have been working at Siemens PLM Software as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You can have a very flexible schedule. The workers are nice and everyone seems to get along. The software seems to be good as well as long as you get comfortable with it.

    Cons

    The training was very tedious. It's located pretty much in the middle of nowhere and the commute can get boring if traveling from Cincinnati. The software is not for everyone, I'm not really a CAD guy but that's exactly what this job entails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. I like the job

    Pros

    No office politics, work oriented culture, Domain leaders, Decent remuneration

    Cons

    Slow Growth, due to domain limitations adoption of latest technologies is slow and so sometimes you don't get to work on cutting edge software technologies. Work life balance can take a hit at times

    Learned a lot at first, then it slowed down...a lot

    Former Employee - SharePoint Intern  in  Cypress, CA
    Former Employee - SharePoint Intern in Cypress, CA

    I worked at Siemens PLM Software as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I was able to learn many new software platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint, HTML, and CSS very quickly even though I did not know anything about them ahead of time. Tons of autonomy in everyday tasks.

    Cons

    Team was located around the world, so no real interaction with people in the office besides my boss. After a while, my boss who was one level below the CIO became very busy and was not able to provide me input on my assignments as frequently as needed.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Siemens have a wide range of software from product life cycle, manufacturing, engineering and analysis tools that you can learn on everyday real-world applications.

    Cons

    Too many software portfolio that makes it hard for even the best application engineer to stay up-to-date on, let alone how these software truly integrate with one another. If you pick a software product and dive deep, you become specialized in that area with no opportunity to expand across other portfolio. Career advancement is seldom rewarded or often denied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees by providing real training (on-site, not web-based), place them on job assignments regardless if they have all the qualifications needed. A week attending an in-class training is far more effective than a month worth of self-paced web-based training. Have them shadow the team to learn first-hands on how the experts provide solutions to customers. Have some faith in employees by giving them opportunity to shine through. Holding back a seasoned employee because he/she doesn't have that one specific skill set you need for a specific assignment is no-win situation for both. Promote from within company to provide opportunity to those who have wealth of knowledge to share (i.e. Jack of all trade). Stop with the internal job interviews for employees who are being interviewed for a specific project assignment within the company. We are already employed by you, have our resume and skill set profile updated, and the resource managers should be able to say I have XYZ person available, and now go utilize this person for that project assignment. The competitiveness within our own organization is counter-productive for everyone.

    I have been working at Siemens PLM Software full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Nothing else

    Cons

    Hard to move up the ladder. Very lateral.
    Managers are very incompetent. Only interested in asking for status from subordinates. They appear to spend a lot of time working, but actually contribute very little. They are only interested in their advancement even at the expense of subordinates. All projects are very badly managed they have a process but don't follow it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing that they would care to consider.
