    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.

    A great place to make a name for myself.

    Financial Leadership Development Program Intern (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe company is massive and delves into about anything you can think of. I studied finance and didn't really know exactly what I wanted to do, this was a great place to dive in and decide whether I wanted to work in manufacturing, healthcare, energy, etc. Office culture is young an exciting. The intern class is from all over the country and they certainly encourage working at offices outside of you hometown to stretch out.

    ConsThe interview is not easy, even a standard behavioral interview will have some tough questions.

    Yes, I would 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

    One of the best company to work for:-0) Diversity in real sense…

    Senior Mfg Engineer (Current Employee)
    West Chicago, IL

    ProsI joined Siemens few days ago but I can tell you with past 24 plus years of working only in companies across the globe that, this is the company from where I am going to retire. They have the best technology at work does not matter in which division you work they have best technology at work.
    People are very friendly and share knowledge with each other… the Team work in real sense.
    Management are very friendly and open for ideas all the time. I just love working for the Siemens.

    ConsGetting familiar to the Hi Tech working environment.Just Kidding ...I am pro technology.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing already.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
