    Lots of opportunity, challenging, local leadership engaged, able to have input on career, solid company trying to focus on employees and customers.

    large company with many layers, changes structure a lot, Corporate not always in tuned to the people on the ground. Sometimes numbers driven and does not see the big picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to keep employee morale in mind with all the changes. Do not sacrfice long term for short term success. Test new ideas before inititating big changes to make sure works.

    Current Employee - Financial Leadership Development Program Intern in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Siemens as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company is massive and delves into about anything you can think of. I studied finance and didn't really know exactly what I wanted to do, this was a great place to dive in and decide whether I wanted to work in manufacturing, healthcare, energy, etc. Office culture is young an exciting. The intern class is from all over the country and they certainly encourage working at offices outside of you hometown to stretch out.

    Cons

    The interview is not easy, even a standard behavioral interview will have some tough questions.

    Pros

    I joined Siemens few days ago but I can tell you with past 24 plus years of working only in companies across the globe that, this is the company from where I am going to retire. They have the best technology at work does not matter in which division you work they have best technology at work.
    People are very friendly and share knowledge with each other… the Team work in real sense.
    Management are very friendly and open for ideas all the time. I just love working for the Siemens.

    Cons

    Getting familiar to the Hi Tech working environment.Just Kidding ...I am pro technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing already.

    I worked at Siemens full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive, good balance between work and off time, decent benefits package

    Cons

    There wasn't enough to do in my particular department and many days I'd find myself bored looking for the end of the internet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of or modify their leadership programs, 6-month rotations are not long enough for people to learn much about their job.
