Great engineering company with the best technology, but could use enhanced marketing approach worldwide.

Senior Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Siemens full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSmart people and overall good HR practices. Salaries are okay and certain levels get decent bonuses. Will be around forever.

ConsSlow to adapt to market changes in certain areas. Lets really mediocre people hang around far too long. Advertising and marketing are engineering-centric versus what archrival GE is doing.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou let mediocre and incompetent managers stay around far too long. HR is complicit in much of this and this needs to change.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Progressively waning motivation

Quality Engineer (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

I worked at Siemens full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits, co-workers are for the most part good people, pay is fair.

ConsManagement can often be clueless with regard to actions that need to be taken. Opportunities are not plentiful and motivation (depending on department) is rather lacking.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore interaction with subordinates, more motivation (not only via monetary means), more dynamism and incentives. A program to help your team members advance upward would also be beneficial, a sincere wish to see them rise instead of stagnate, as stagnation brings about a decrease in performance.

Good medical device company

I worked at Siemens full-time for more than 5 years
