    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.

    Current Intern - Accounting & Controlling in Iselin, NJ

    I have been working at Siemens as an intern (less than a 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.
