    Large, stable company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    Frustrating , overbearing systems and processes, very inefficient for such an INNOVATIVE? co.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Melbourne

    ProsGreat facilities, on site cafe, parking etc.- offices not so great.

    ConsIT is laughable- XP in 2014?
    Siemens systems not intuitive, lead to frustration before an inevitable change to a much worse system and so the cycle continues.
    Pay is average at best, payrises are an insult. If having a decent wage is important, look elsewhere. Managers lack leadership/accountability. Turnover is very high, like 20% p.a. min, in some areas like sales 50%+.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet serious about leadership, be more willing to share. Conduct work surveys for culture in an annonimous way to get a real picture not a fake one driven by mistrust and fear of reprisals.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Manufacturing Management (Former Employee)

    ProsYou will generally work with the best people in the business and have an opportunity for world travel depending on your role in the organization.

    ConsThe glacial pace of enacting change due to the thick levels of bureaucracy.
