    Pros

    Opportunity to learn about EDA tools Work-life balance is great if you like slow paced environment

    Cons

    Manipulative or rather Orwellian management style (details @ workplacementorsiemens.home.blog) Incompetent HR arbitration where trust-worthless person take life-changing decisions. Few learning opportunities outside EDA domain due to 'stay in your lane dude' policies.

    Advice to Management

    In order to attract top talents, management need to understands that outgoing communication, outreach, honesty are key for health workplace. Orwell did not write his novel in order to become corporate policy! Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share via Email Copy Link
