    It was a great stepping stone full of valuable experiences and great knowledge.

    Electrical Engineer Hardware Intern (Former Employee)
    Hoffman Estates, IL

    ProsAs an intern, you have a wide range of projects and experiences. You get to work with a variety of teams/engineers who all know their stuff.

    ConsFor a full time employee, you would have to pursue a more in-depth understanding of the medical intricacies.

    An Education

    Plant Manager (Former Employee)
    Woodward, OK

    ProsA lot of opportunity for overtime, due to constant manpower shortage. A chance to prove yourself without proper recognition. Allowed to have responsibility without the authority to perform required duties.

    ConsWill drop you without a second thought. Double standards for upper management and all those below. A lot of talk about management wanting to support but no action to follow. Many managers that cannot make a decision in a timely manner. Overall a lack of support from senior management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop having a standard for management that is different from those below you. Remember the blue collars are the foundation of your success. Senior management is so focused on the next step in the career, they lose focus on the people that make them successful.

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

    Siemens gave me great experience working in a first-rank company

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Knoxville, TN

    ProsThe company has many experts and smart talents. This is invaluable for new employees who need to further grow. The work environment is friendly. The pressure in the company is not huge so the life is quite balanced.

    ConsThe city is a little bit of lonely and will relatively smaller population than the big cities. Those who stayed long time in big cities may not like it. Travelling to other places is not so convenient.

    Advice to Senior Managementmore efficient workflow and co-work between employees

    Good place to work most of the time

    Once was a great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Can build anything , then unable to ship it because some forgot to get the customers shipping info.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStock share and working in doors. Plus it is a huge firm with locations all over the world.

    ConsManagement team changes every year or two. People do the same job for years and the big shots all need to speak German.

    Ready to move on

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Miramar, FL

    ProsWorked with many great people. Culture was friendly for the most part.

    ConsOnly a select few actually are capable of doing the work. HR handcuffs management too much and does not allow to make appropriate actions that would benefit the business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
