    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 have been working at Siemens as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management is flexible and understanding. Casual Fridays with free breakfast. Ability to work from home 1 or 2 days a week, depending on the department. Hours are flexible as well, but the level of flexibility depends on your manager.

    Cons

    There doesn't seem to be much of a possibility to move up in the company. Each department has a set head count which is low. From what I know, the only way to advance your position in the company is to actively seek openings in other Siemens companies since openings do not seem to be common.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company benefits are quite reasonble. They really compensate their staffs accordingly. They have a lot of online training which is awesome. A lot of potential for staffs to perform and a very bright future to take on a higher positions

    Cons

    I felt the Malaysia HDX team National Sales Manager and the BU Manager must show more sincere attitude to their staffs. This become a weakness where many great staffs will leave. They just show a bullied attitude to their staffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management should hire a more competitive national sales manager and BU manager based on the leadership skill. They are not capable to lead the staffs. Staffs are your capital too.

    Pros

    The Co-workers were great and the benefits were good.

    Cons

    The pay was horrible for a Drive Technician. Engineers were located at a different location, so we could not always communicate when things didn't fit or work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the people better and give them engineers that are there locally.
