    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Solid company with good benefits. Mostly not about what you know but who you know. Best part are the talented people you get to work with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up within the company since they usually promote preferred candidates and not due an extensive search.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to know your staff skills.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good workers. Got out while I could !

    Cons

    CEO is ruining the company. He is a former finance manager. All he cares about is the bottom line. HR is just as bad. New policies are taking away the benefits of employees. Raises are not even worth it.


  5. "Steady German monolith - good for engineers"

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

    Pros

    Opportunities for travel, advancement. Management graded on employee retention. Adequate compensation in line with the Industry. Management generally supportive of development and advancement.

    Cons

    Enormous international company, so it can be difficult to navigate as an external hire. Company structure can be complex and re-organized every 3-5 years. Some key decisions are made by German HQ management and can cause friction with US region. Many positions require or prefer engineering background even outside of expected R&D, Application Engineer, etc. roles.
