Good overall experience but corporate culture change has taken root

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Siemens full-time

ProsThey are quick to train you and offer many different areas of specialty. They seek to help you with your professional development and are flexible with your work/life balance.

Benefits are excellent and compensation is a bit lacking.

ConsA corporate culture change at the top has lead to them not being as concerned with maintaining personal relationships with customers and instead to focus on accounting goals to t detriment of customer service.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good company and experience for resume. Get out after a few years.

Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
Glasgow, DE

I worked at Siemens full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSalary is good, Co-workers are awesome. Level of expertise, experience and knowledge is outstanding. Lots of PTO if you don't get sick. Training is available but must be approved by budget and is frequently denied.

ConsSiemens engineering - absolutely dominated by white males. Diversity does not exist. Pretty much a good old boy's club that dictates performance rating, perks, compensation. Management is too worried about corporate Siemens and has no clue what is going on. Vacation and sick time is now all PTO. If you have an operation (or maternity leave), you are forced to use all PTO so you do not have 1 day of vacation for the rest of the year.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeave your sacred hallway. Stop hiding behind meetings and busy schedule. Walk around. Talk to your people. Introduce yourself and try learning names. Make an effort to understand the barriers that prevent people from excelling.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
