    I worked at Siemens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company's products are very diverse and technologically interesting
    Customer base is also quite interesting
    Opportunities for international work

    Cons

    Politics with live ammunition; not really a multinational-a very German company that happens to be global

    Last year noted with employer is not correct-options did not allow correct info to be used

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what people have to say; no one knows everything about everything

    I have been working at Siemens full-time

    Pros

    Global company with large resources, career opportunities within multiple divisions of the company, known name within the industry. Employees provided with the tools and empowerment to do their jobs.

    Cons

    You are just a number within the machine, and the company has a "grow at all costs" mentality that does not take into account market or regional conditions. Area office environments vary wildly from good to toxic

    I worked at Siemens as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Loved learning about combustion turbines and how they help provide us all with electricity.

    Cons

    It seems like this industry will be hurt eventually by renewable energy. It will take a while but it has to happen eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. My boss was humble and kind. Could definitely of spent my career working for him. Great team too.
