    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    Nice and peaceful environment. No pressure during tasks.

    Cons

    Career raises may be too hard to acquire due to pretty settled employees. Average employment total is over 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is good, give a chance to new people.

    I worked at Siemens full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    High quality products that I was proud to sell. Dedicated colleagues that worked hard and wanted to do the right thing for customers.

    Cons

    Many rigid processes made it hard to get things done quickly. Constant threat of layoffs and restructuring made it hard to feel that company was committed to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check with the people doing the work or who need the work done before you eliminate entire groups and then discover that the cuts were too deep.

    Pros

    Great company with lot of opportunities. Friendly staff and lot of room to grow. People are passionate about their work and they stay there for long period of time.

    Cons

    Siemens is too big and politically oriented. There is very little diversity at the senior management level. Management structure is too complicated. Lot of unnecessary processes.

    The daily routine is kind of a drag. It gets redundant day in day out but they do pay well.

    Pros

    This is a well run organization. It is very hard to get in, in my opinion that gives me more confidence that they don't just hire any guy off the street. I have an unbelievable resume.

    Cons

    I wish we had a local website and could feel a little more small townish at times.

  11. A mercifully short reign

    Pros

    A big company, so the usual pluses as far as new technology, etc.

    Cons

    Despite the assumption that Germans are technocrats, they aren't. They're just conservative, so they're good at doing what they've always done. This doesn't bode well for changing conditions, or entering a new market like medical software. Like awaking after a week-long bender, Siemens wisely came to their sense and sold off the healthcare business to Cerner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice necessary - it's now under new management!
