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

    Pros

    Siemens is a large stable company with good benefits and a good culture. When work slowed down in one department management would loan personnel to other departments instead of laying people off. Overall, I enjoyed working for Siemens.

    Cons

    Siemens is a large company where it is possible for you to become just a number in certain situations. There are times when you may be asked to travel temporarily.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and remain in contact with your employees

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Siemens provides a great benefits package. The dress code is casual and they offer lots of fun activities. Good chance for advancement from within.

    Cons

    Migrating too many positions off-shore. Company is a little too top heavy. They give generous PTO but finding the time to take it is near impossible due to work load.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to provide a better work/life balance and enforce employees to use their PTO so that they have a chance to renew and revitalize to avoid burn out.

    Pros
