Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Hoffman Estates, IL

I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

- Siemens MI is probably the best team in the entire industry that pioneered technologies in the past but also continues to push the envelope in the future
- Long term partnerships to key opinion leaders
- great benefits and good work / life balance

Cons

- current management team lacks vision and leadership experience and is destroying what was build up over the last 10 years
- lack of decision making and micro management delays projects and drives the best people out the door
- lost a lot of the customer focus we had back 5 years ago when we were celebrating some of our biggest achievements and successes

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

    Pros

    Siemens Bdg. Technologies, formerly Landis & Staefa, formerly Landis & Gyr, formerly MCC Powers, is a great company and they make great products. They also offer excellent training and documentation. The corporate management does a lot to try to be a great company.

    Cons

    The local Florida offices are a joke. They only care about the bottom line, not the employees, many of whom do not even have a college degree. If you are in good with the managers, you have it made. If you work at a satellite office, you are in for a lot of grief, unless all your jobs end with a 35-40% gross profit margin. The FL office managers do not care about the employees or their needs, whether you have training or not, whether you are happy or not, whether your job conditions are safe or not. They don't really care whether the customers are happy or whether the jobs are installed properly, or even meet NEC codes. If you can cut corners and get away with it you are rewarded.
    Also, you will be more successful if you play golf well, as the managers like to leave the office for hours at a time and go play golf rather than manage their offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on customer service and quality. Go back and rehire some of the folks you burned in the past who did a great job, but you treated them like dirt. They were the ones who made your customers happy. If you want to spend all your time at the golf course, make sure there are others who can make important decisions in your absence.
