    Siemens Energy not family friendly

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Alpharetta, GA
    Former Employee - Project Manager in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at Siemens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    friendly co workers and hard working staff, best group of people I've ever worked with except mgt is very hands off and taught to not care about people at all

    Cons

    not family friendly, mgt hold grudges if you need to be off for sick kids or family, won't support working from home so must use vacation when sick or taking care of a sick child when you could work from home and not contaminate the whole office

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't micromanage and share the weath

    Pros

    The Co-workers were great and the benefits were good.

    Cons

    The pay was horrible for a Drive Technician. Engineers were located at a different location, so we could not always communicate when things didn't fit or work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the people better and give them engineers that are there locally.

    Laid back internship, wasn't given enough work for most days. Projects ended up mostly being busy work

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, decent money.

    Cons

    Possibly the most dry corporate culture you can imagine. You don't get to work with teams that often, usually just sent off to do your own assignment.

    Former Employee - Accounting in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at Siemens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have yet to find any good reasons to work at this company. No work life balance, managers make poor decisions, poor leadership, salaries are low, constant change and it is never for the good. No growth potential, unless you are located in the Alpharetta office, then you have a chance for job growth.

    Cons

    This company likes to change every 6 months and never gives current change a chance to develope. They are always looking to out source jobs. People are walking on egg shells all the time not sure if they will be out sourced. The managers in Corporate accounting are terrible! Thought process is old school and they cannot think outside the box. Siemens claims to be a big advocate for breast cancer, too bad the managers do not share that same belife. My manager violated FMLA and the director allowed this to happen. Even worse HR turned a blind eye to what was going on. My advice to any working in accounting, stay away from this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire or move on and let someone experienced take over your position.

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

    I have been working at Siemens

    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.
