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

    Pros

    Good branding and well known but not for the current portfolio.

    Cons

    Very driven to get results, little acknowledgement the work people put in after hrs...its all expected.
    Hard to change the culture once the virus spreads...driven by bottom line and will do all possible to get the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat employees as just workers...share the vision and goals and don't assume that people just take for granted what's said. Treat everyone the same way....and acknowledge the efforts that are made.

    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    Dynamic and quite interesting place to work.

    Cons

    Procedures from HQ can destroy local entites - lack of flexibility hurts.
    Restructurisation made without any moral behaviour - fairing people on the gas station after years of working together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More personal approach to team members would change a lot.
