    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    Very diverse company with loads of talent from around the world. Excellent quality team. A generally good work environment due to the European influence on respect and time off. Many opportunities to learn and contribute. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Experiences vary from position to position, and from site to site. Teamwork was not great most of the time in my experience. Not trying very hard to achieve customer satisfaction, on time delivery, efficiency and quality. Old equipment in production was replaced far too slowly. Union was allowed to rule the rooster. Safety was good, not great. Line management and top management is not actively engaged/ interacting with hourly and other workers, no visible, felt leadership. A lot of "It's not my job." They could do much better. No accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the union to company standards. Provide mandatory management training to supervisors. Ensure teamwork becomes the culture. Weed out the "dead brush" employees that are making it a bad place to work for everyone else. Hold people accountable to meet targets. Stop coasting...become actively engaged in ensuring success.
