    Some good. some bad.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsReally good culture. Potential to stay a long time (or at least there used to be) and great extra curricular activities. Great people who have been with the company a long time make you feel welcomed.

    ConsManagement is too friendly with some of their subordinates. Don't really provide much feedback and will dump you off in a cubical if certain people don't like you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Siemens Houston Support Center

    Quality Engineer (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsLots of opportunity, because of the lack of college trained engineers, there are lots of holes in Engineering and Operations because of the lack of discipline.

    ConsManagement does not hire black professional male engineers, even though the company is located in the middle of the oldest historic black community in Houston. (check history)

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould hire engineers with college degrees instead of promoting home made engineers from the shop floor

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Solid Career, A little unorganized, Very corporate

    Service Account Engineer (Current Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsWell established company. Great benefits.

    ConsVery corporate. A lot of time is wasted on technology issues such as errors in online training, etc. Not a very "team" oriented structure. Employees must be very resourceful when solving problems because there's not a very strong support structure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on creating a better support structure through the chain of command. Before rolling out new sales initiatives, ensure all details are in place to provide a quality service to customers.

    Large Company with opportunity for career growth

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsLots of opportunity, challenging, local leadership engaged, able to have input on career, solid company trying to focus on employees and customers.

    Conslarge company with many layers, changes structure a lot, Corporate not always in tuned to the people on the ground. Sometimes numbers driven and does not see the big picture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to keep employee morale in mind with all the changes. Do not sacrfice long term for short term success. Test new ideas before inititating big changes to make sure works.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
