Pros

Very smart and talented employees. Lower level management is fair.

Cons

Very poor staffing decisions made in the past year or two, causing imbalance in some areas. Hiring from across the globe was forced and is foundering, driving up customer dissatisfaction with language barriers and poor product knowledge. Development areas were cut too much, with model bugs sitting for years without resolution. Silos between groups blocks sharing of vital information. Every group is only interested in their own metrics. Some teams are treated poorly, like servants, by other Siemens groups. Too many high-paying administrative positions are being filled, while vital customer-driven positions are cut.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees before making decisions. Don't treat them like children.

    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.
