    Pros

    Siemens has plenty of job security. Siemens is a very credible company that will look excellent on your resume. They also foster a good work environment where everyone is professional and courteous.

    Cons

    The company structure makes it impossible to quickly advance. They don't pay as well as some smaller companies. Company could put more of an emphasis on training employees.

    Advice to Management

    Have your team engage in group activities that promote learning from each other. Find ways to motivate your team to keep older (which most of them are) engineers engaged and motivated. Give your employees commendation and gratitude when they excel at an important task.

    Worked for the Healthcare division. Good leadership.
