    I worked at Siemens as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Incredible work environment, friendly and helpful people all around the company, interesting job, and a lot of room for improvement.
    Very nice infrastructure, with cafeteria, clean and bright environment, open concept.
    No defined offices or seats, anybody can seat wherever they want.

    Cons

    Work can get a bit monotonous. It is always the same thing everyday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to use interns for more complicated tasks. Sometimes I felt I was bored with the job I was put to do.

    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    A very innovative company with a great brand and many very bright people. An excellent learning environment that is global in nature. If you want to get a truely global experience this is the place. You also will get in depth knowlege of sectors including Industry, Energy or Medical. The products are truely world leading. The opportunity for someone early in their career to be trained and groomed are exceptional.

    Cons

    Matrix structure causes it to be slow moving and its never clear who is leading the charge.
    Often people spend more time reporting internally the same information over and over in different formats to the various stakeholders. It is inefficient and at the end of the day, the leadership is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace and live the new vertically focused structure. Give full power to the sector leads.

    Fight more for advancement opportunities for engineers.
