    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.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, great coworkers; some flexibility

    Cons

    Old Style Management. No much room for promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opportunities for advancement and training are very political. Very old and vertical management style. Promotions should be based on the employees skills and degrees

    Pros

    There really wasn't any pros except for the discount on Disney world tickets.

    Cons

    You are only a number within this company. They will end up destroying your family life and take away everything that you used to enjoy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What Management? I had 3 managers within 2 years of employment. This company is a turnover factory.

    I worked at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time (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.

    Pros

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

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

    I have been working at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics as a contractor (more than an 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.
