    I worked at Siemens full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are an engineer and an early career professional.

    Cons

    HR management has unfortunately gone down the path of eliminating seasoned employees and losing knowledge. Model is to only hire entry/jr level employees. Plus the message is that you will have to do more with less.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay
    I cant really say anymore. They shrink benefits each year. Maybe they will read this and change. Its a job I guess.

    Cons

    -Sexism
    -Politics
    -Micro managing
    -Desire to shrink budgets affecting progress
    -No work life balance - If you have a family, they dont care.

    Daughter attempted suicide a couple months ago. Asked my manager for some help and understanding. Was told I would have to chose whats more important. If you have family issues, steer clear of Siemens.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of management that does not care about the welfare of their people.
