    Pros

    Educational opportunities are good, if you get a good manager

    Kaeser promotes and encourages diversity.

    Cons

    It's a crap shoot on getting a good manager. Management and solid direction is lacking. Constantly pulling the rug out from underneath its employees. And they promise much more than they can deliver.

    Mid to upper management do not follow Kaeser's example

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip on some of your managers. Most all of them keep a "fall guy" on hand. And its usually the ones that have been around for a long time. Far too long in some cases.

    Kaeser would be ashamed if he knew what was going on in the PMO and ITO divisions. But utimately this is his responsibilty to know and correct the actions of these managers. But then again, there is that "fall guy" that they have ready to throw under the bus.

    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    Really good culture. Potential to stay a long time (or at least there used to be) and great extra curricular activities. Great people who have been with the company a long time make you feel welcomed.

    Cons

    Management is too friendly with some of their subordinates. Don't really provide much feedback and will dump you off in a cubical if certain people don't like you.
