    Pros

    Salary, Travel, Benefits, Workplace Environment, Networking, Education, Training, Customers, Experience, Relaxed environment

    Cons

    Work/Life balance. With the amount of travel required it is difficult for some. However, I am not married, nor do I have any children or other commitments, so the amount of travel is fine for my schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not keep employees in upper level positions who have not used the system in 10+ years.

    Pros

    can work from home occasioanlly

    Cons

    Mangement communicates poorly, sparce technical training, they believe knowledge base notes are more important than actully hands on training. Sweatshop environment, management is only concerned about numbers and not the employees unless you are part of one of their cliches. Compensation is below industry standard and promotions depend on who you know and not your performance. They have a very high turn over rate and an extreme amount of stress. Also when there is a disagreement between the employees and the customer, management never backs their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better, listen to suggestions offered by employees who are technically proficient. Allow for more flexibility to work with the customer to resolve problems. So some empathy and concern for the problems faced by your employees. Don't be so overtly insensitive to non-white employees, they tend to treat all nonwhite employees as though they are idiots who are not capable of learning.

    Current Employee - Coordinator in Cary, NC
    Current Employee - Coordinator in Cary, NC

    I have been working at Siemens Medical Solutions Health Services as a contractor

    Pros

    Seems to be what people envision when they say "i'm headed to the office," Overall a positive environment, well appointed, team hierarchy and although situated in Cary, NC has distinct German sensibilities. I can say this site is fairly diverse and weekly we encounter many international employees and customers' of Siemens making the educational pilgrimage to this site. 1 hr lunch break. Siemens will "groom" you into the role in order to help you be successful--this is awesome. Ample internal promotion

    Cons

    Routine, routine, routine, yeah some people like this, 5-day work week. Cant really complain, its work, pay can always be better. How much money is enough "just a little more," replied John D Rockefeller--

    Pros

    Great company with great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Company removed my position with no warning.
    Supervisor bias.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company spent a fair amount to hire me and yet the supervisor would listen to one employee, that had a personal vengeance against me, to remove me from the company.

    Was not given the opportunity to speak in my behalf before the company let me go.

    Pros

    Good structure, good benefits, responsible finacial managing of the company.

    Cons

    Non-reactive management, we work too much in silos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent in all business transactions. What are the companies strenghts, weaknesses. What is the plan to address the weaknesses. Too many gloss-over status meetings leave most workers with a lack of confidence.
