    Pros

    A better benefits and has a lot staffs to do individual work

    Cons

    Sales and business unit team leader is very bad in management. It does not know to bring the staffs to the right directions. Too many reports need to do until no time to do sales.

    Advice to Management

    Should need a country leader to oversee the performance of their leaders in sales and marketing. Reduce some reports and documentation.

    Pros

    Great coworkers with a lot of potential if the work environment improves. There is a lot of specialized expertise here that does not exist at other Siemens sites.

    Cons

    Siemens bought Rolls-Royce in Mt. Vernon, and employees were excited because we thought corrupt management would be shown the door. Instead, the harassment and intimidation are only getting worse, and these managers get pats on the back while the worker bees continue to get laid off by the hundreds. This is a great place to work if you are part of the special inner circle, where certain management protects each other no matter what kinds of unethical things they do. Otherwise, if you try to point out something is unethical or not good engineering practice, you can forget it because you won't have a job anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Siemens, please step in and listen to the employees. Do something about the environment because it is driven by certain managers and it needs to stop. They are driving this place out of business. The employees are doing the best they can with a very bad situation.

    Pros

    Engineering Practise, Exposure.
    Overall the professional environment gets you going. Siemens products are very interesting.
    The kind of projects Siemens deals with are good for learning. Siemens is a good institute for learning.

    Cons

    Low benefits. Slow paced growth. Tiring internal procedures.
    Benefits are much lower compared to other companies of the same profile. Growth within company is very slow specially if you start as an engineer. Internal procedures are very tiring and boring.

    Advice to Management

    Kindly be more cooperative with employees. Treat you employees as class A because the sort of projects you are dealing with are Mega and each employee deserves a cut in it.

    Pros

    Good products. Very robust and dependable. Excellent hardware design and ergonomics.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, lots of unnecessary and redundant reports. If you differ with management you are treated as an outsider and life is made very difficult. Products are made by engineers for engineers that makes for a very steep learning curve for the customer. The end users of these products are supposed to be focusing on patient care not interacting with an overly complex user interface.

    Advice to Management

    Let people perform their jobs without the unnecessary reports and paperwork. Simplify the user interface, clinicians don't need so many different options and choices. Most of the options that were purchased were never used. This drives up the cost of healthcare.
