Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Wide portflolio of water treatment technologies with some of the best brand names internationally. One of the few companies investing in research & development of newer treatment technologies. Global foot print & network through regional Siemens companies through out the major economic regions of the word.

Cons

US Centric businesses with high overheads. Little headquarter sensitivity to business cultures in regions outside of US. Slow & bureacratic decision making.

Advice to Management

Should look at global sourcing and engineering in order to increase competitiveness and ensuring sustainable future. Could have restructured the inefficiencies out at least 5 years before 2012 ie. in the first 3 years of the acquisition by Siemens.

    Pros

    Variety of experiences if you are willing to relocate and/or travel. It is great experience to work for a company that is so big that everything and everyone becomes a metric. The complex environment is challenging.

    Cons

    Being a metric for the company doesn't "feel" very good or fun. Too much overhead documenting what you are doing every minute of every day. Getting work done doesn't have to be this hard. While they give you plenty of PTO, they undermine your ability to use it by setting high performance targets that you can only reach if you don't use PTO.


  2. "one man show no team work"
