Pros

Good technology, good market in Germany, engineers given a lot of respect, reasonable salary, very nice facility, marketing team was good

Cons

It was the year of a bad economy, a lot of cutbacks and departments closures. The location was a small part of the company and hence not considered very important

Advice to Management

Expand this location since space is available (lot of empty cubicles), focus increasing revenues, margins will be made up during a good economy

    Pros

    Good benefit package, still matches 401K plan, descent salaries, stable environment. Company still has Siemens mentality, management cares about people. Global management was able to perform restructuring during global crisis.

    Cons

    people handle multiple projects, although management cares about people there are many too complicated rules and regulations reducing motivation. System of incentives does not influence motivation of every particular person. A person can not drastically influence his own pay, it does not depend on his skills and hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is doing a good job in handling a tough financial situation, and cost savings. Management should improve communication within local teams. Do not go too far with cost savings, it can influence the quality of products and services.

    Pros

    Lot's of policies and procedures to get things done, none of which are really documented anywhere. You really have to know who to talk to to get things done

    Cons

    Probably none if you are in Munich. In a satellite development site, it's very difficult to understand what's going on.

    Advice to Management

    Lose about half the management and kill the matrix management approach
