    I worked at Siemens full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I had the chance to make good money here. I didn't work that many hours and worked with a lot of good people. Overall a good job

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Siemens as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    It is a company that wants you to ask questions, look for problems, make suggestions for improvement and best of all, they reward you for it!

    Cons

    Siemens is a very large company so a lot of the processes take longer than many companies. But Siemens being so large is also a great Pro.

    I have been working at Siemens as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay for an intern, Relaxed atmosphere, non-obtrusive management, relaxed dress code, good people.

    Cons

    Training left something to be desired; you are left having to learn on the job. It can take a while to get really started here. There are times when "input" is more readily availible than "Answers".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't change much. Fewer meetings, I guess. In fact, I think the one major issue is that Siemens puts too much on their managers.

    I have been working at Siemens

    Pros

    Massive company, plenty of room to grow and move around

    Cons

    Easy to be silo'd into one function. They don't really move people between functions. Barely trains their employees (even the professionals in the rotational programs) aside from cross-training a from a coworker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in training and be aware of what the Millennials are looking for in an employer. If you don't change, you will find you have half your staff retiring in the next 10 years and no one to fill any mid-management positions.
