    I have been working at Siemens

    Pros

    Great benefits. Smart, serious, professional colleagues and management. Also, they allowed autonomy in performing your job without the micro-management that is prevalent in many large corporations.

    Cons

    Since it is such a large company, was sometimes difficult to navigate the correct paths to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All upper management should put a little more effort into providing knowledge and a more basic understanding of the labyrinth of the company's sales objectives and operational structure.

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

    Pros

    Treats their employees fairly well within the technology group. Very good work life balance in many cases. Siemens has been committed to creating and fostering a culture and working environment that will promote and encourage new younger talent while also ensuring the adaptability of its more senior/longer tenured employees don't feel pressure to hit the road.

    Cons

    If you have been with the company a long time and started at the bottom, its sometimes hard to be competitive with colleagues who have come in at more senior now equivalent positions.
    The company restructures every 3 years which sometimes gets frustrating and there is sometimes a lack of sufficient communications relevant to the impacts of employee groups.
    Senior positions in the US are often filled within the Americas are sometimes filled with delegates from HQ, rather trying to promote within or recruit talent within the Americas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more competitive with ensuring your longer tenured top talent is retained.
