    Pros

    Good people to work with. Decent benefits including a good PTO policy. Worldwide presence. New projects to work on. Good work environment.

    Cons

    The Healthcare unit was spun off as a wholly-owned subsidiary this year. What that means for each Healthcare group is very uncertain. It's assumed that each will get sold off.
    As far as benefits, the health insurance is costing more, and the deductibles have also increased.
    There seems to be a lack of communication and cooperation between some internal groups.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more perks.
    Raises have been minimal for a long time. Increase the percentages.
    Ensure the service group's concerns are listened to. The concerns are often delayed for several releases.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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