    Pros

    Dynamic and quite interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Procedures from HQ can destroy local entites - lack of flexibility hurts.
    Restructurisation made without any moral behaviour - fairing people on the gas station after years of working together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More personal approach to team members would change a lot.

    I worked at Siemens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good name for the resume.
    - Company name make the sales task easier
    - Great place to learn and self improvement. continuous learning courses arranged by by HR and paid by business unit
    - Strong management and clear reporting line.
    - Excellent marketing material and presentations.

    Cons

    - Limited authorities for employees and mid management. Quotations higher than 100,000 Euro should get approval from Germany and 100 questions will be asked before approval.
    - Low pay comparing to peers in US companies.
    - Difficult to move between business units or between countries for mid management level and managed employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time to listen to employees and learn from them how to keep them. Online surveys doesn't tell the full story. Otherwise, SIEMENS will become a training center and source of trained people to their competitors.
    Money is very important for employees.

    I worked at Siemens as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work on an interesting project in an group doing a lot of reasearchy work. Very fun!
    German division has great work/life balance - you very rarely see people working after dinner.
    Lunch food is well-priced as well and everyone goes there to socialize daily.

    Cons

    I didn't see much to complain about with my particular job but if I were in a different group/division then perhaps.

    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.

    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.
