    Current Employee - Biochemist in Newark, DE

    I have been working at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.

    Current Contractor - Technical Illustrator in North Tarrytown, NY

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

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Good place to work. Vacation is good. Flexible working hours. Learn a lot. But still has a lot to learn. A lot of procedures.

    Cons

    There is no good learn process. You have to learn things on you own. You can't be promoted very quickly.

  8. The company focus is based on the bottom line.

    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

    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.
