I worked at Siemens

Pros

Smart people, lots of resources, good reputation, strong local (branch) management

Cons

Senior management just didn't get it, made life miserable for my supervisors. Hard to sell and deliver with broken processes and weak senior leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Basic processes are broken; employee onboarding, quoting tools, account management tools and most surprisingly the ability to order, track and deliver material. SBT has core process issues that are overcome only by heroic, daily efforts at the branch level.

    Pros

    Good benefits and a company vehicle are very nice. Some very good people work here.

    Cons

    Really wish I could work from home. In my opinion, this isn't a very desirable location to live in so most people commute from 1 hr + away. I hate commutes so this is kind of a big deal for me.
    Salary seems low for the area. I couldn't afford any decent housing in the DC area with my salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Option to work from home a few days a week would be nice.
    I am an engineer that does PM work. I knowthe PMs get bonuses on their jobs that perform well, but I won't see any bonuses because I'm not a PM, even though I am doing the same work. Seems unfair.

    A reliable, conservative company where change is slow yet it is armed with untapped talent potential.

    Pros

    Global, international company. Strong focus on sustainability and optimization of broad portfolio and harmonization of processes & systems.

    Cons

    Change is slow since the large majority of directives comes from global headquarter in Germany. Executive leadership jobs and management positions are still largely non-representative of the minority landscape that makes the US a great country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aggressively work on a strategic diversity plan that will be clearly represented and seen at the executive level and senior level management. Purposely seek to change the face of Siemens Industry in the US and worldwide.
