    Pros

    Siemens is a very good company to have as an employer. I was part of a company that was acquired by Siemens and the company did everything in their power to make the integration into Siemens a good and painless one. I worked closely with operations in Germany and found everyone their to be friendly and helpful, and I enjoyed working with them very much. I felt lucky to be a part of such a good team.

    Even after being forced to leave due to the reduction of remote R&D sites, I still look back upon my time at Siemens fondly. The company did everything that they could to make the separation easy on us.

    I have a great deal of respect for everyone at Siemens.

    Cons

    Like all companies, there is localized cronyism, and that should be monitored more closely by corporate to prevent it from adversely affecting the organization

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you did with your Mason Ohio operations.

    Advice to Management

    Put an injection molding facility back in El Paso; there is plenty of talent in El Paso which are in fields they are not striving in
    Quit hiring people to run a facility from Monterrey. These so called engineers have no clue how to run a business
