    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Siemens is vast in all the employment opportunities. First, it is global, so pick your country. Second, it is involved in so many industries: mobilization, medical, energy, building automation,etc, etc. Third, a person can start in one position and easily move to another as desired. There is training provided, tuition reimbursement, local mentoring, etc. all provided for your success - and ultimately theirs.

    Cons

    While the corporation is, I believe, fair and balanced, your experience will be Branch specific. As with any company the local management makes all the difference in your work environment. Ask in your interview: what will my usual work day consist of, will I have support from others, what percentage of employees have been here more than 5 years, how many hours do you expect a salaried employee to work weekly?

    Advice to Management

    Let the workers do what they do best and support their needs to be successful. Lead by involving yourself with what your reports do on a daily bases and shielding them from management issues and stresses. All too often the workers only hear from management when things are not going well on the spreadsheets. This causes undeserved stress on the reports and will "burn them out". Hold various departments accountable for their deliverables.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Siemens.

    Interview

    This was a very good interview process. Phone screened yesterday and video interview today. I applied about a month ago. Very nice people. Was told the video interview would go an hour, but only went half an hour, but not complaining.
