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

    Pros

    Everything you might expect from a global blue chip brand and an underlying culture of wanting to be a force for good.

    Cons

    You get the best out of Siemens by seeing beyond the organisation chart. Not everyone realises this and if you don't the silos can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with 'ownership culture.'

    Pros

    Good culture, good people, innovative company be it evolving culture, planning for the future, etc. High retention in many departments. Possibilities and support to move between businesses where appropriate.

    Sometimes awkward to move between projects or something not to your appeal, but probably similar anywhere. Still variety exists.

    Pros

    There is a lot of variety in my role. Things work! People are friendly and helpful, there is a flexible working approach and a huge commitment to training, CSR and people's wellbeing.

    The complexity of Siemens takes a while to get your head around but that's not surprising as there so much that Siemens is involved with.

    Advice to Management

    I look forward to seeing yet more diversity at all senior levels of the organisation.

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

    Pros

    The Frimley campus is lovely with a Gym, Starbucks and parking. The staff are very friendly and there is always a smile and friendly hello from most people you meet. Siemens promotes a very caring culture and compensation is fair. Career opportunities are available to all. There is a choir! There is a family fun day each year which is really nicely done and gives the opportunity to see everyone relaxed in their family environment. People who go the extra mile are recognised with awards.

    Cons

    Sometimes processes are quite lacking.
    Ownership culture while good in many respects does mean a lack of accountability in certain areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going... we have a very strong , effective and diverse leadership team who are approachable and friendly.

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

    Pros

    There are many benefits working for Siemens, apart from the perks of free parking, free gym (Frimley Site) there is a lot of encouragement to better yourself, become more qualified and to climb the ladder.

    Cons

    Siemens as with any business is always looking to save money, a knock on effect of this is they move departments over seas so you never know how long your job is safe for.

    Advice to Management

    I think management should all sing from the same hymn sheet.
