    Office culture was really great and you were very well included in the project work there. There a great possibilities of getting an great insight into a big multinational company.

    It can be quite political working at Siemens, especially at the headquarters. Creative ideas have a hard time and pushing them trough can be like running against walls.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent responsibility provided to staff for professional growth for people if there are enough projects to work on.

    Cons

    The industry is very cyclic and there can be periods where there is no work. Compensation to staff is fairly low by industry standards and this leads to a fair bit of experienced people leaving for other jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation could definitely be improved.
