Pros

It is a young company with opportunities to contribute for those with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Cons

Senior management is anemic. There is a great deal of confusion and indecisiveness regarding the company’s mission, strategy, and direction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a strategy that is focused on the government marketplace and government customers.

    Pros

    If you can weather the seasonal layoffs that have occurred since 2004, there is room for advancement and growth.

    Cons

    Management has unrealistic expectation of results given the amount of resources (lack thereof).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't get something for nothing.

    Pros

    Siemens Medical is a good company to work for overall. The company operates in the medical devices and healthcare IT, as such it is interesting work. The company has really good employees working at the company which makes going to work everyday a little easier.

    Cons

    The work-life balance has been an issue, especially as the organization has gone through restructuring and layoffs over the last year. Siemens compensation seams to be a little bit lower then the market overall - but seams to be competitive. Siemens is a large global organization and therefore there are many stakeholders that require different information. Many times different groups may ask for similar information which can cause some frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to be more decisive and make decisions more quickly. In the current market environment - waiting too long to make decisions is a serious problem
