    Good place to work and build work relationships.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCoworkers. The majority of coworkers are an excellent group. Most everyone will do whatever they can to help others and have a "can do" attitude - most of the time.

    ConsSalary. Unless you are on a fast track or a manager takes a special interest in you, your salary tends to be low. A quick search on Monster.com and you can find similar jobs in the same area offering much better starting salaries. The company tends to bump salaries up 1% - 3% yearly, when starting out low it takes an eternity to get to a decent salary. So when hiring in, negotiate a nice salary up front. Advancement is best achieved by either moving to a different division and/or facility or leaving the company for another job and then returning. Lots of red tape and levels of management making it difficult to "get things done".

    Advice to Senior ManagementLevel the salary wages. Wages are all over the place for the same job. Don't punish those that start out at the bottom and work thier way up by keeping their salary low. Stop hiring someone new from outside the business for the same job and starting them out higher than the person that's been on the job for years. If the market demands a higher salary for the new person, adjust the existing employees salary to match. The reason the company keeps loosing top talent is because of low salaries and the red tape of trying to get day to day tasks accomplished. Managers have a bad habit of thinking, Siemens is a huge company so they have the right to do whatever they want. They use the excuse, in the current market and because of the downturn....but yet management salaries continue to climb and huge management bonuses continue to pay out. Don't forget about the people that get the work done that pays the bills and salaries.
