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

    Pros

    Owned by Siemens. Some well respected industry leaders (Larsh J and Chris King).

    Cons

    Inability to deliver product due to lack of foresight into development constraint and making unrealistic promises to customers.

    Senior executives ( excluding co founders) who are out for themselves only, and have no commitment to stay in the space or leadership drive for developing employees' careers. This includes the current President, the former CEO, most anyone with a VP title.

    A culture if it can be called that of intrigue, favoritism, back stabbing, and every man for himself.

    MDM is not a platform with any huge growth prospects.

    Very high turnover in the engineering and development arena.

    Lack of product management expertise in Utility processes.

    Advice to Management

    Shuffle the legacy EMeter executive and sales team, and focus on product development and smart grid business processes consulting.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Siemens MI is probably the best team in the entire industry that pioneered technologies in the past but also continues to push the envelope in the future
    - Long term partnerships to key opinion leaders
    - great benefits and good work / life balance

    Cons

    - current management team lacks vision and leadership experience and is destroying what was build up over the last 10 years
    - lack of decision making and micro management delays projects and drives the best people out the door
    - lost a lot of the customer focus we had back 5 years ago when we were celebrating some of our biggest achievements and successes

    Advice to Management

    Pack your stuff up and move back to Germany!
