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

    Pros

    Great people and supportive of growth. I have had many roles over the years, and Siemens provides opportunities to grow into those roles. Don't expect management to promote you because you're a good employee. It's about asking for tasks that will get you qualified. Then it's about a job opening up. They're happy to promote from within.

    Cons

    Losing jobs and influence to European Management/locations on the Products side. Processes are over-structured. Upper management needs to be refreshed.

    Advice to Management

    Star workers do better when they can own the process.

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to learn. You can have a good work Life balance. There are interesting projects to work on. The company's business is very diverse so you can move between fields. You can have a stable career.

    Cons

    They're always located in small cities.
    Pay is average
    Benefits are average
    Software not well documented
    Time difference with german colleagues

    Advice to Management

    It would be better if offices were based in the cities and pay and benefits were better. It would be great if software was better documented. Some places have a very limited budget and hard working employees dont always get rewarded in their performance reviews. They get an average grade in favor of seniors.

    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits not best but ok.
    LOTS of different shifts.
    Nice break room.
    Plenty of parking.

    Cons

    Very stressful and clique-y.
    Management tends to disappear for hours - all of them at once.
    Several team leads have no social skills so better to promote then have them speaking with customers.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs, not enough indians.
    Time for the "leads" to do some actual work.
