    I worked at Siemens

    Pros

    There was plenty of work to go around. Benefits were on par with most companies. Mostly new equipment to drive.

    Cons

    Could not get home on time. Sometimes could not get a daily shower. Constant possibility of injury. Sometimes we're all rush rush rush.

    Advice to Management

    Try to accommodate drivers home times, and some personal time throughout the week.

  7. Non-Managerial Employee

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    Pros

    The people are nice. The products are innovative and sleek. Good to know that the products you work on save lives

    Cons

    Significant process overhead and sometimes processes are conflicting. The company is becoming too top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than increasing mid and senior management positions, consider hiring more employees that will do the real work
