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

    Pros

    Management is flexible and understanding. Casual Fridays with free breakfast. Ability to work from home 1 or 2 days a week, depending on the department. Hours are flexible as well, but the level of flexibility depends on your manager.

    Cons

    There doesn't seem to be much of a possibility to move up in the company. Each department has a set head count which is low. From what I know, the only way to advance your position in the company is to actively seek openings in other Siemens companies since openings do not seem to be common.

    Pros

    Challenging assignments with experienced personnel .

    Cons

    Too large of a company where a respone to whatever your request, is virtually non-existent if it happens at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more on-site qualified support/supervisor personnel. Less reliance on Siemens HQ in Germany which creates bottlenecks and handcuffs it's employees performance.

    Pros

    friendly co workers and hard working staff, best group of people I've ever worked with except mgt is very hands off and taught to not care about people at all

    Cons

    not family friendly, mgt hold grudges if you need to be off for sick kids or family, won't support working from home so must use vacation when sick or taking care of a sick child when you could work from home and not contaminate the whole office
