    I have been working at Siemens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility of work time, regular training programmes conducted. Young and enthusiastic people around.

    Cons

    Salary is less compared to average of the Industrial practices, slow career growth, monotonous work, huge processes to be followed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary should be restructured and compensation should be made every twice or thrice a year so that you ensure it is in line with Industrial Standards. Also a proper employee evaluation program to be implemented. Process needs to be made in favor of the customer needs and ease not the company.
