    Former Employee - Senior Supervisor in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Yearly bonuses are good. PTO is generous. Because the company is so large globally, there are many perks. When ever I told people where I worked, there was recognition and respect for the company.

    Cons

    Hardest thing was always working under a cloud that constantly focused on the dollar. People in management that should not have been in management. A constant competitive environment by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to relax. Management needs to stop competing with each other.

    Pros

    Great for entry level candidates who want to gain experience.

    Cons

    At least for the Los Angeles site, there is no opportunity for career growth. Many people are stuck in the same position for sometimes 10+ years despite talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and take them seriously! There is a reason why this company has a problem retaining talent.

    I have been working at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Industry leader in technology inception, design and implementation. Equipment reliability is excellent. Customers at first do not like the software but in a short time, prefer it to any other.

    Cons

    Divisions can be disconnected. Not good at sharing information between business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your best people. Do not restructure the company by ridding the company of the higher salaries and ages. This causes customer dissatisfaction and problems with the younger and less-experienced engineers to take on great pressure to perform at a high level.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics

    Pros

    they offer:
    fair pay
    great benefits
    training sessions
    career and knowledge advancement opportunities
    great products
    knowledgeable peers
    on the edge of innovative ideas

    Cons

    it is a large company so that in order for you to advance it is more important who you know and whether they have your interest in mind. Most often you find each person is focused on their own personal agenda rather than the big picture for other employees or the company
    decisions can be made with ill informed information. At times management are told what they want to hear and do not challenge the information

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    in making big decisions, do not rely on the information given rather challenge the sources to make sure it is to benefit of the company rather than an individual's own agenda. training sessions provided for management is not sufficient. if there is a need for management styles to align with Siemens way, reinforcement of the trained skills is very crucial and that should be enforced from top to bottom
