    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 Management

    Nothing that they would care to consider.

  2. Great people to work with

    Pros

    Can work from home, flexible work hours, smart consultants around, great customer feedback on the services provided

    Cons

    Very lateral organization structure, getting a promotion is not feasible at all.

    Advice to Management

    Money is one part of keeping a employee happy, but they need career path and hope more effort is put into it.

    Pros

    I've been with Siemens for 8 years and have worked in a variety of roles from consulting to software development. When it comes to work/life balance Siemens is extremely understanding. People are generally nice and most people work hard.

    Cons

    Lack of good leadership is extremely apparent. PLM management knows what needs to be done from a market perspective but has no idea how to get there. Many team leaders should not be in those positions and it causes products to have to be continually reworked to accommodate customer needs and wants. Too many decisions are made based on a single customer versus on the market standards. KLAS ratings continue to drop month after month while competing companies who had lower prior ratings pass us by.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the reality of the situation and produce a product that meets industry standards before adding features that have little ROI. Get rid of the lead people who have not performed and continue to bring a product down with their unrealistic expectations and lack of understanding of how to accomplish their vision. Start looking at those who are actually doing the work instead of those who are trying to get recognized and produce only poor results. The loudest employee should not always be to most recognized and those who lack opinions that go against the norm probably have no originality and have been in PLM too long creating more red tape then needed. Having employees in meetings 60% of their day being non-productive will contribute to a poorly developed product. Lastly, it is offense to employees to work excessive hours and get little to no compensation and then to hold raises for 6 months without back pay is almost criminal.

    Pros

    Great, solid company to work for. Major focus on high quality deliverables, accountability, and integrity.

    Cons

    Path to advancement is limited or completely undefined in most cases; if you're billable, you'll stay where you are for a long time instead of advancing along a defined career path.

    Pros

    Over the last 15 years I've worked with UGS, Siemens AG and PLM. UGS was acquired by Siemens a few years back.
    Stable job - work here forever, international colleagues, exposures to multiple industries, flexible work and multiple locations globally. Lots of new companies being acquired. Great healthcare coverage (at a cost).

    Cons

    Siemens is a great international company, but PLM is still run by the same guys that ran UGS. If you weren't in UGS management then, you're not in the management team now (Siemens' German executives excluded). Everyone here in management has been here forever. Merit has no role in advancement. Bonuses for employees normally don't make it pass the favored ones, but you can work here forever with 1-2% merit raises. That means after the yearly benefits costs increases you're only a couple of percent down. Promotion is nonexistent, and with all the acquisitions, there's even less room to move. You won't get your manager's job, because he's not going anywhere; yes, the glass ceiling is pretty thick here too. Don't get sick (as other reviews have said) there is no sick pay, just PTO. I'm sure that will be cut too when the ObamaCare takes off.

    Advice to Management

    Take some lessons from German management is regards to your employees. Treat them as the assets they are.

    Pros

    Stable work environment in the US in terms of job security. There is never a shortage of work. Following several reductions in force over many years and various acquisitions of the company, the people that are left are, on average, very senior people with little chance that they will be let go.

    Cons

    Most product development job growth is still overseas (where labor is cheaper), despite some, very limited, local hiring in the US. Raises have been lackluster due to current economic conditions. Key senior developers are given quite good bonuses while developers who do not exceed their goals for the year are given small to zero bonus. Raises are similar. HR rarely updates salary bands and generally seems disinterested in the employees it is supposed to view as valuable resources. Employees are forbidden from openly talking about salaries and bonuses, but given their spending behavior, and the timing of yearly bonuses, it is clear that the chosen few are highly rewarded while the many are largely ignored. Even cars in the company parking lot range from the most expensive cars imaginable to the cheapest economy cars imaginable.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be clear communication about salaries, bonuses, and career paths. There needs to be very visible connections between evaluations, bonuses, and salary increments.

  11. Siemens PLM is good overall and is leading in the PLM market

    Pros

    Cutting Edge Technology, Lots of learning opportunity

    Cons

    Big Corporate, Lots of Red tape, Highly profitable but highly understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Put some pressure on Siemens AG to let you invest some of the money you are making for them in hiring new talent and employee development.
