    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working independent with team-oriented distribution of workloads is nice environment since you can grab tasks related to expertise and contribute to team. Managers are hands off and rely on independent workers to follow up, carry through and deliver results. When problems arise, proactive solutions and alternatives are always provided and shared with team oriented approach.

    Cons

    Workload come in bunches though seems when one issue arises it all hands on deck for solutions and workarounds. Timing of implementation and changes are slow yet consistent change management through organization.

    Advice to Management

    Hands on sometimes may be best approach

    Pros

    Excellent place to work, you have a lot of options for growing not only in the area you’re working or the state

    Cons

    Health insurance need to get more accessible for the employees, getting expensive with time and we can not afford it

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Organized program with great rotational managers that coach you and provide feedback. Awesome way to move up in the company within or outside your field. You make connections at numerous sites with people from all departments. You make great friends with others in Development programs and get to see them every 6 months for a week of presenting, touring, and having fun.

    Cons

    Not enough locations within my division. Would like to see the program expand outside of just one division. Also, I wish we could be more selective with our four positions.

    Advice to Management

    Get more locations and managers to host an OLDP!

    I worked at Siemens full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a very nice place to work. Work environment was pleasant and coworkers contributed to the overall success of the business. The work was very interesting and challenging. Little supervision made it possible for individual creativity/contributions.

    Cons

    I don't have any major concerns. The workforce could be more diverse, and management in some areas could be more concerned about subordinates than the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Make the workforce more diverse and give equal opportunities to employees. Medical Benefits could be improved; too expensive with very little company assistance.

    Pros

    The end products are important to society and provide a sense of purpose to your work. Good work/life balance. The conglomerate structure insulates the company somewhat, because one division will perform well while another is struggling. Lots of diversity and internationalism. The overall Siemens culture is fairly horizontal and you can interface with senior-level management in many roles.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly decent but could be more lucrative. Lots of bureaucracy and redundant, outdated data platforms and systems. Some older coworkers are resistant to change and learning new things. Some locations have poor interfunctional collaboration and the different groups distrust each other.

    Advice to Management

    Continue embracing the digital culture, new way of working, and improving data / analytics

    Pros

    Amazing manager and team, great culture where people really take pride in their work. Decent benefits, generous PTO, great work life balance.

    Cons

    Health insurance could definitely be better and parental leave policies could be better for US employees since we currently only get 2 weeks paid.
