Pros

Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. There will never not be an reason not to be busy. Great for people who love to work. The salary is within acceptable ranges and Most management is pleasent enough to deal with.

Cons

Micro Managment at it's best. They will be involved in every aspect of you day to day. The have rules laid out for how you should do your job. There is no real room for error or slow days in their minds. If they pay you for 40 hrs and work only comes to 30hrs, they will eventually find 4 people in the same boat and remove one to spread the work around. This makes for a somewhat tense desire to find work by the more "go getting" employees

Advice to Management

Not everything worker do can be arrange in such a way to have standards that don't change. You can't just expect every job to go as planned

    Pros

    You get to work on innovative products for use at a wide variety of domestic and global companies.

    Cons

    Typical corporate interference in the HR side of things. If you want to rise through the ranks of management there are plenty of opportunities. If you want to be an individual contributor, there is not much of a career path.

    Advice to Management

    Exhibit the same values you want your employees to live out. Your example will do much more to lead than all the presentations in the world could.

    Pros

    Siemens Medical in Malvern is a big company with a variety of career opportunities. It is usually easy to move around to different groups, applications and technologies. The working condtions are flexible; you can work from home as necessary and your daily work hours can fluctuate to blend with your personal life. The salary and benefits are generally competitive or better than industry averages.

    Cons

    Things usually move slow but that's fairly normal for large companies. Siemens is going through tough times right now (like the rest of the country) so new development is few and far between. That means that the technology is stagnant; there are few opportunities to bring in and incorporate new technologies. Almost all effort right now is in stabilizing existing product lines to provide a solid foundation for moving forward sometime in 2009.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being transparent and honest with the state and direction of the company. The majority of employees will support the direction as long as we can know the direction and are given the opportunity to understand why that direction/strategy has been chosen.
