I worked at Siemens as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

There were none except maybe their cafe.

Cons

1) The entire department is talking behind interns if one doesn't submit work on time or makes any mistake..... I was here for descent challenge but they expect new interns to know everything without any clear instructions..Absolutely brutal.
2) You better know Excel inside out....above advanced skills to survive here.
3) If you're not meeting their expectations they will kick you out....this is the first time I ever saw a company kick out interns which i find ridiculous.
4) The most unprofessional place I have ever seen, Senior Directors and managers cursing out on regular basis but it didn't bother me.
5) The internship was just horrible especially the work.

    I worked at Siemens full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, challenging work, room to move around in career, great corporate responsibility

    Cons

    Lots of Bureaucracy, Layers of Upper Management, Company has lots of different divisions that have different procedures

    Advice to Management

    Learn and listen from Mid Managers and to the employees as you visit more locations. Meet with them, see them in action performing their job function to understand what the issues are, and listen to the people who really know what could be improved upon, and take action.

    I worked at Siemens as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Had a knowledgable manager that was able to teach me basic business and procurement skills. Big name company that will help propel you into other jobs in the industry.

    Cons

    Nepotism, Nepotism, Nepotism. It was a miracle that I landed this internship considering I had no internal connections. Procurement organization pays interns low wages, while finance interns receive much better pay. I was a prime candidate for the Supply Chain Leadership Development program, but was not selected (most likely due to nepotism).

    Advice to Management

    If interns are high performing, give them first consideration for entry level positions.
