    Pros

    Great company with lot of opportunities. Friendly staff and lot of room to grow. People are passionate about their work and they stay there for long period of time.

    Cons

    Siemens is too big and politically oriented. There is very little diversity at the senior management level. Management structure is too complicated. Lot of unnecessary processes.

    Advice to Management

    Siemens is too big and politically oriented. There is very little diversity at the senior management level. Management structure is too complicated. Lot of unnecessary processes.

    Please improve the cons I mentioned above.

    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.

    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.

    Major learning opportunity but need to be able to work in massive conglomerates with plenty of bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Massive company, plenty of room to grow and move around

    Cons

    Easy to be silo'd into one function. They don't really move people between functions. Barely trains their employees (even the professionals in the rotational programs) aside from cross-training a from a coworker.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in training and be aware of what the Millennials are looking for in an employer. If you don't change, you will find you have half your staff retiring in the next 10 years and no one to fill any mid-management positions.

    Pros

    A big company, so the usual pluses as far as new technology, etc.

    Cons

    Despite the assumption that Germans are technocrats, they aren't. They're just conservative, so they're good at doing what they've always done. This doesn't bode well for changing conditions, or entering a new market like medical software. Like awaking after a week-long bender, Siemens wisely came to their sense and sold off the healthcare business to Cerner.

    Advice to Management

    No advice necessary - it's now under new management!

    Pros

    It is a company that wants you to ask questions, look for problems, make suggestions for improvement and best of all, they reward you for it!

    Cons

    Siemens is a very large company so a lot of the processes take longer than many companies. But Siemens being so large is also a great Pro.
