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

    Pros

    Switched on and knowledgeable teams, understanding and supporting middle management with a focus on continual development and training of staff. Good ethnic and gender diversity within the teams.

    Cons

    Appears to be quite politically driven, can affect decisions in business that would otherwise be quite simple. Little to no cohesion with the upper management at times can make it feel like they are like faceless men.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction and bonding with lower level teams would be good to promote cohesion, to work better towards the bigger picture.

    Pros

    Technology leader, established support structure for career development, ability to relocate internationally. Depth of knowledge very good in most countries. Good training opportunities exist.

    Cons

    Company politics can be counterproductive at times, very process driven, not very nimble. Frequent global restructuring tends to create a significant amount of inward focus.
