I have been working at Siemens Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The social culture is active, with lots of extra curricular, and regular working colleges. the majority of positions at Siemens don't demand 60+ hour weeks however to be a star you'll need to put in your time. New hire training programs, especially for College grads are well planed and executed even better. Benefits are great, and the pressure is average.

Cons

Being a large corporation the internal politics get in the way of productivity. Secondly career mentoring isn't the greatest, to be recognized as an above average employee isn't difficult - to be recognized as a star takes a lot of time, patients, politics, and confidence (much like most companies I imagine). Base Salary is below the market - and there are a lot of ppl working here.

Advice to Management

Trim the fat, praise the hard workers, Keep an I on the market value of employees.

    I worked at Siemens Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The management and engineering teams are talented and diverse. The environment is professionally stimulating. Diversity was apparent at all levels of the organization. A premium is placed on delivering reliability and performance in our product and customer experience. Great benefits. Well resourced company. An annual Technician's Conference is held in 3 regions of the US (focusing on training, company strategy, and sharing of ideas)!

    Cons

    Aligning the Siemens Wind (formerly Bonus Energy) way of doing business with the Siemens corporate way is challenging. My work site was hours away from my home in NW Washington State (not a criticism of the company, but I share this information because this was the only reason I chose to leave Siemens).

    Advice to Management

    None.


  2. "Great Potential, older employees sometimes prevent change"

    I have been working at Siemens Energy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Challenging and interesting work, great work/life balance, great pay and benefits, job security, easy to move laterally, good network for young engineers

    Cons

    -Job security (there are some that make great efforts to put in little effort), resistant to change, everything that comes with being a large company, less opportunity for travel (the fun kind of travel), 'academic' has a bad connotation

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat, be open to new methods, increase focus on R&D
