Siemens Controlling hierarchy levels

Hello everybody,

does someone know about the Siemens hierarchy levels. I would like to apply for a position in "Controlling". Is there a hierarchical difference to the controller? There are also job advertisements "Controller"



Re: Siemens hierarchy levels of controlling

It would be the same for me in terms of content. May be because the positions were written out by 2 different people who simply use different terms.
In case of doubt: apply first and then you can find out such details in the interview.
Or call and ask;)


Re: Siemens hierarchy levels of controlling

Would also say that it is comparable. I always thought "Referent XXX" really means a direct entry position for graduates, but "Controller" can also refer to university graduates and, on the other hand, there are also speaker positions that require "several years of relevant professional experience". Therefore it is presumably different from company to company in terms of the names and not even within a group.

The latest trend that I have seen is that companies are increasingly turning the position as a speaker into "junior manager", but the content of the job advertisements remains the same (as seen, for example, at Metro and other corporations)


Re: Siemens hierarchy levels of controlling

Siemens is very large and extremely dependent on the individual sectors or divisions. Depending on the BU, there can be differences with regard to the job description.
A good indicator, however, is the specified job level (graduate, 1-3 years,> 3 years,> 10 years). Since Siemens is a works council and IGM-oriented company, certain key words in the requirement or job profile also apply to the respective job level. However, "speakers" at Siemens are mostly people with professional experience. In the strategy area, for example, there are a number of "speakers" who require leadership and training experience. It would all be comparable to a (junior) manager or senior manager.


The internship program "Inside" of Siemens IT Solutions and Services is aimed at students of economics, business informatics and computer science.

The unemployment rate for both technical college and university graduates with traditional degrees - diploma, magister, state examination - is 4 percent after one year. Bachelors are even less likely to be unemployed (3 percent, FH or 2 percent university). This is shown by the current graduate study by the HIS Institute for University Research (HIS-HF).

Generation Y, those born between 1980 and 1999, is characterized by problems entering the job market. The consequences are a feeling of insecurity and fear for the job. Millennials under 35 also tend to think individually, according to a study sponsored by the Hans Böckler Foundation.

The current OECD study “Education at a Glance 2016” confirms: The German unemployment rate is below the OECD average in all areas of education. The vocational training system in Germany proves its strength through the smooth transition from training to work. The report shows whoever grants a degree has a salary advantage of more than 50 percent. In a country comparison, STEM courses are particularly popular in Germany.

University graduates who find their first job through personal contacts achieve higher salaries, have better opportunities for advancement and remain loyal to this employer for longer, according to the results of a graduate survey by the Bavarian State Institute for University Research.

The proportion of employed young people aged 15 to 29 years fell significantly from 63% to 48% between April 1991 and May 2003.

Digitization can no longer be stopped. In order to survive in the future job market, young talents should be prepared for it during their studies.
