Pros

Company values their employees, has learning and development programs for each employee, and is dedicated to advancing those that work.

Cons

VERY large company, with lots of red tape and politics. Occasionally, these get in the way of making the best choices for the business.

Advice to Management

Consider giving ALL employees incentives to keep the company's best interests in mind (i.e. profit sharing, annual bonus, etc.)

    Pros

    If you are 40 y.o. +, than this place is just fine. Job is easy and responsibilities are limited.

    Cons

    I wanted more challenges from my job and more money. Siemens is a huge company where things move slowly, you find yourself to be a tiny fish in the ocean. What frustrates most is decisions made on the very top that affect the whole departments and nothing you can do about it. For example, company wants to save on office space and relocates everyone one day without asking employees opinion. Also company did a poor HR job, software engineers were hired just to fill positions ASAP. If you travel on business, you will get a cap on spending, no alcohol expense and mid-to-low end hotel, like La Quinta. These factors add to the general feel of cheapness of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Money saving steps, are necessary, but employees should be compensated somehow when the company saved a lot and posts great profits. Also, it would be great to make changes in the management to add community feel to the department. Health lifestyle initiatives: my friend at Chase told me he gets some bonus points for exercising at the gym. If the office location away from the public transit, at least to bring up the topic of picking up employees from to/from work. Yearly reviews are pointless: no matter how you perform, your increase is limited by the allocated budget and company guidelines.
