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

Pros

Lots of opportunity to move around. Pretty good management. Compensation and benefits are good. Hard-working employees.

Cons

Too many initiatives. It can be hard to keep up. Could do a better job with diversity in upper management levels.

    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Personal use of company car. 2 weeks paid vacation plus 5 floating holidays on top of normal holidays to start. Out on the road to long?... stop and have a meal and get a room on Siemens, no questions asked. Yearly review of management that holds weight on managements review.

    Cons

    Pay raises are slow, but starting pay compensates.. Occasional unplanned OT, but made up for in the weeks I work 30-35 hours and still get paid for 40.

    Advice to Management

    None really.. My manager kicks @$$. Not sure for what to change above him...


  2. "Never worked so much ... for so little reward. Not talking about salary."

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great benefit package .. once you understand the process.
    Rewards of plant wide luncheon for a milestone celebrations.
    Has a great potential to be a great company to work for. Maybe I was in the wrong department?

    Cons

    Despite emails from TOP management overseas or from another location in the country for communications. The company is highly bureaucratic. Have worked many years in other companies and this one does not make you feel like part of the company.
    They have virtually no culture. I was just a salaried widget, that never felt a part of the team. Much of the management was from Germany. I believe did not embrace the culture of the US worker. Perhaps if they hired local engineers instead of those from Germany they could have used the fund to hire more people to take the workload down. So many of the salaried staff worked OT constantly the work life balance is poor.
    Senior Management at the plant does not know the staff or get to know them.
    Huge diversity of employees from other regions of the world is nice, but it even if they speak English, they are difficult to understand ... and you really can't find an American worker to do the job?
    Saw huge amounts of overseas travel expense that did not seem to be needed.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on management staff from overseas.
    Be involved with your workers more... not just lips service.
    Have a local HR staff that will answer questions about benefits as opposed to calling a toll free number.
