    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, and no pressure. They will not put you on hard jobs that you can't do but will help you ramp up.

    Cons

    Its a grind, and they are stingy with employee raises. The office is so 20th century. They made us take a course on listening but didn't follow up so I couldn't really put it into practice.

    Advice to Management

    Make the office more it tune with the 21st century lifestyles

    Pros

    Relatively stable, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Pay is way under market in my field. Lots of bureaucracy. Slow to change. Basically one big holding company that tries to pretend it is a singular entity.
