    Slow to change, compensation increases are not always great you have to play the numbers game with them just like everywhere else.

    I have been working at Siemens PLM Software (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance
    Some locations moving to the "New Way of Working" -- open office concept with "neighborhoods" for your team; encourages you to meet other colleagues that you wouldn't normally talk to because you can see across the office; very bright and inviting
    Most people are friendly and welcoming; many of us have become friends outside of work
    Most managers are great
    Work from home flexibility

    Cons

    Communication can be slow and broken
    No central place for processes; internal information can be hard to find
    Hard to understand all the roles in the company and how the pieces all fit together
    Employees are generally older, though the company seems to be making efforts to acquire young, new talent

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging your younger workforce to take challenges and voice new ideas. Put these ideas into serious consideration and take risks!

    Pros

    -Friendly, smart people
    -Good work/life balance

    Cons

    -Cash cow type atmosphere. Keep things running; don't rock the boat. No such thing as R&D.
    -Ideas are weighted on the person's tenure with the company, not the merit of the idea.
    -Lazy senior personnel from a lack of proper review process

    Advice to Management

    Innovate or die. You aren't #1 in the business and there are unarguable reasons for it. If you want to be the best, you are going to have to have higher standards.

    I worked at Siemens PLM Software (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is trying to be a part of Siemens AG. Doing very well at integrating

    Cons

    Work is not challenging, IT is disjointed and the workforce is older, with a mentality of "always done it this way" and not going to change

    Advice to Management

    There are no titles, so you do not know if you are dealing with a secretary, or the CFO. No new employee orientation, and training is minimal

    Breakroom microwaves don't spin to heat your food up evenly

    Advice to Management

    Get better microwaves
    Try to position people on the same team next to each other
    Use open source software so people coming in don't have to learn proprietary stuff
    Get rid of the dumb software processes which most people don't do
