    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, with flexible hours. Interesting work with opportunities to work on a variety of things. Generally flat structure so it's easier to find leadership roles. Opportunities to build knowledge. People who work there tend to stay for a long time. Can work remotely.

    Cons

    The office is located in a depressing, isolated office park with no amenities. Frustrating tools/processes imposed top-down which creates obstacles to work. Management-heavy (almost as much effort into billing/planning/statusing work as doing the work.) Shrinking industry.

    Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Montreal, QC
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, interesting technology development, many different products and positions enables easy moves to new responsibilities, international company, has awareness of and attempts to improve gender equality in leadership positions.

    Cons

    Top-heavy organization: lots of managers, not a lot of people doing the work. Teams in different continents can make projects difficult to progress.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer managers over viewing each project, the project work is significantly slowed down because of the high amount of time required to communicate to the numerous managers who have been appointed as stakeholders. A project with 2 people working on it can easily have 6 managers requiring updates and commitments, etc.
