    I worked at Siemens Transportation Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best reasons for working for Siemens is the atmosphere and it's people.

    Cons

    All challenges are welcome; however, I cannot say there are any cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to hire me either contract or permanent.

    I worked at Siemens Transportation Systems

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, good and regular communications from upper management to employees

    Cons

    Teams do not work well together a lot of throwing under the bus between departments and directors. Good ol'boy mentality, promotions based on being German or having a degree only so talent keeps your job secure but it won't do anything for your career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out and learn to play with each nice in the sandbox

    Pros

    The company is willing to do a lot for its employees. Although it asks quite a bit at times, it is also willing to give quite a bit to help ensure a good balance of work and home life as well as continued employee development.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company focuses a little to much on the importance of engineering and makes it a focal point at times it shouldn't be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to better balance the importance of engineering with the importance of other departments and also understand not all managers should be engineers.

    Pros

    Name recognition. Buisness is growing. Intra company transfer to other divisions within Siemens. Federal money to help stimulate growth in rail industry.

    Cons

    Unmanaged growth may lead to inefficiency and lower quality. Managment not providing clear strategy to lower rank and file. Salary should definitely be adjusted to match cost of living expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay to increase morale. Employee stays motivated if there is room for growth and salary increase based on performance
