    I have been working at Siemens full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great opportunities to fix any one of the many broken processes.

    Cons

    Don't expect positive change overnight, there is a lot of problems, especially in the healthcare sector. Many changes have come and gone with little overall improvements taking hold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the work environment, instead of cutting 10% of the workforce annually to bring in fresh worker bees that you will eventually wear out and toss aside.

    I worked at Siemens full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary is good, Co-workers are awesome. Level of expertise, experience and knowledge is outstanding. Lots of PTO if you don't get sick. Training is available but must be approved by budget and is frequently denied.

    Cons

    Siemens engineering - absolutely dominated by white males. Diversity does not exist. Pretty much a good old boy's club that dictates performance rating, perks, compensation. Management is too worried about corporate Siemens and has no clue what is going on. Vacation and sick time is now all PTO. If you have an operation (or maternity leave), you are forced to use all PTO so you do not have 1 day of vacation for the rest of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave your sacred hallway. Stop hiding behind meetings and busy schedule. Walk around. Talk to your people. Introduce yourself and try learning names. Make an effort to understand the barriers that prevent people from excelling.
