I worked at Siemens full-time

Pros

Great people, strong service value proposition

Cons

Constant restructuring from Siemens, never fit the sweet spot for the organization, a poorly fitting acquisition from the beginning.

Advice to Management

To the new PE owners, there are some great people who can make a difference in reestablishing the value in the organization. Clear out the bureaucracy and overly layered management and you will allow them to add immediate shareholder value.

    I worked at Siemens full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The portfolio is very broad which results in a diverse customer base. The company is divided into four sectors: Energy, Healthcare, Industry and Infrastructure & Cities. Roughly 18 business units divided into the sector, with individual P&L. Siemens operates in 190 countries, but is divided by region and managed in a decentralized manor.

    Cons

    Rarely is there an opportunity to move from one business unit or sector to another -- no formal process. There was a model for cross-selling, but it is no longer funded by the business units and there is no incentive to collaborate. Shame.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting CFOs make sweeping business decisions, especially when they do not have any face time with customers. The results are pleasing to shareholders, but the "fix" is short-term. Long term sustainability requires an investment in people, not spreadsheets.
