    Pros

    overall good people; strong focus on development opportunities

    Cons

    upper mgmt at global HQ locations are not supportive and do not provide value to the business in North America; Many managers are looking for personal opportunities and can "disappear" in a situation that could make them look bad also as a European company, there is a "ceiling" for American employees that do not have international experience. But, it is difficult to get international experience if you want.

    Advice to Management

    As market/business opportunities decline in certain businesses, the focus was on finger pointing to the lower/mid level managers rather than driving improvements from the top down. It was not a good place to work as there was not a culture of teamwork.

    Pros

    Siemens has plenty of job security. Siemens is a very credible company that will look excellent on your resume. They also foster a good work environment where everyone is professional and courteous.

    Cons

    The company structure makes it impossible to quickly advance. They don't pay as well as some smaller companies. Company could put more of an emphasis on training employees.

    Advice to Management

    Have your team engage in group activities that promote learning from each other. Find ways to motivate your team to keep older (which most of them are) engineers engaged and motivated. Give your employees commendation and gratitude when they excel at an important task.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits...good coworkers...some managers do protect their employees

    Cons

    Siemens grows by acquisition, rather than by organic growth. Because of this, billions are spent on buying other companies, not integrating them, realizing they have 50 people doing the same job and cutting 50% of them. This acquisitions don't always work so billions are lost and Siemens AG must rectify this by cutting jobs and salaries in the US rather than the home country.

    Advice to Management

    Once Vision 2020 doesn't work, just like Vision 2014 didn't, plan on Vision 2026.

    Pros

    Good global brand and name recognition helps sell above average products and services

    Cons

    Leadership is on a 2 year merry-go-round. You will find yourself reporting to a new boss every 2-3 years, trying to implement the same failed strategies over and over again to no avail because the new director comes in and doesn't know the business. That director then moves on to the next position/location just before the results of his/her strategy prove to be a no-gain proposition. When I was there the company invested some $50MM+ on new plant equipment and hired hundreds of new employees only to turn around and sell / lay-off 2 years later.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Management needs to take a vested interest in the business instead of just doing what looks good on the surface to further their own careers.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Flexibility is great w/ supervisors. Friendly atmosphere with driven co-workers and positive reinforcement.

    Cons

    Unrealistic deadlines. Make a decision and implement it. Sometimes takes too long to put actions into place.
