    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Medical Benefits.
    Front-line workers and engineers generally great collegues

    Cons

    Has a bad rep at local colleges so recent grads don't apply.
    HR often hires people who can BS them.
    No plan for professional development. Their Performance Management plan is a joke, and managers typically don't send employees for training and don't clearly define what is needed to move up to the next level.
    Engineer attrition is approx 50% per year.
    Recent reorgs in the past few years have left employees disoriented. Many profit centers internally that continually fight. Very little internal cooperation between business managers.
    Pay scales are approx 20% below Atlanta average. Once hired, raises are almost nonexistent.
    Majority of internal movement is lateral.
    If you want to look back on 10 wasted years of your career, this is the place.

    Advice to Management

    Take employee surveys seriously.
    Put forth programs for employee ideas that go beyond cost cutting. Many times, improving product and customer service requires an increase in cost in the short term.
    Put forth a concise, step-by-step plan for PM@Siemens that people can follow, as though they were going for an MBA.
