    Siemens attempts to provide a professional atmosphere and develop managers. Not a terrible company but not perfect.

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

    Pros

    Benefits good, plenty of PTO. Development is important to management. Value business ethics.

    Cons

    Stock price is down, so very EBIT driven. Results in push pull of providing customer service yet trying to reduce costs.

    Pros

    Good benefits with reasonable salaries
    Good support tools and training to help make you successful in job

    Cons

    Undergoing significant changes. Future questionable.
    Invest a lot of time, 12 hours per day + , weekend work to keep up
    Company is finance-driven first and foremost with quality suffering.

    I worked at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good compensation and good benefits and 401k. Lots of opportunities within Siemens to work in different departments and industries.

    Cons

    Siemens is a big company, but the healthcare sector is not keeping up with the times and many instruments are nearly obsolete. Regardless of how many customers they acquire, Siemens does not hire the manpower to match, thus creating frustrated customers and worn out employees. There were multiple layoffs and relocations during my time there, leaving those of us who were left with the feeling of very little job security plus heavier work loads. Managers said they cared about work/home life balance, but it didn't show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be loyal to your employees and in turn they will be loyal to you. Be honest and listen.

    I have been working at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Professional atmosphere, nice co-workers, congenial atmosphere. Some very good project managers and writers. I enjoyed working with them.

    Cons

    Inadequate directions to do work. Some personnel very overbearing so that working became harder than necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make job description simpler and more concise. Outline in the first days, what are the main parts of the job. Do not assume that a new employee will read all the numerous pages of information.

    Pros

    Generous benefits; competitive pay; at one time I was proud to be in the "health care" business helping people. Not anymore.

    Cons

    Management does not understand or care to understand the diagnostics industry. This organization was formed by the purchase of three formerly successful companies. There is no strategy other than to sell off bits and pieces of the mess they have made. No new products, poor leadership. Its all about the money.
    Very poor moral among co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customers, before they are all gone.

    Pros

    Great products that make a difference in patient care. Many good people at all levels in the organization. Strong market presence.

    Cons

    High workload and high expectations to stay plugged-in 7x24 due to global nature of the business. Stock not traded in US any longer so profit sharing benefit is missing. Many of the senior positions are held by Germans or senior employees from other Siemens businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to foster creativity in leadership teams at all levels. Encourage growth and development of employees with meaningful responsibilities.
