    Pros

    Government client, which gives a false comfort of stability.

    Cons

    While Siemens in general is a great company, this division is really struggling to get business, and has laid off people massively starting in 2008. Because of the repeated layoffs, the employees at the company are very defensive and anxious, and even afraid to share information to ensure job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the managers have been promoted from blue collar jobs, so they lack the professionalism for dealing with white collar employees. The senior leadership is rarely seen except at all-hands meetings.Mid management is fierce and uncompromising, with little focus on employee development.

    Pros

    Good working environment. Above average Salary. Great Benefits. Fantastic coworkers

    Cons

    The company is too big to share internal information with different business units. Siemens have been growing thru buying small companies, which makes information sharing very challenging. Standardization of processes and procedures is slow.
