    Pros

    The support for good work / life balance is fantastic. While there is a lot of work to be done and at times the hours are long they are also very flexible. Some times you work long hard hours, other times not so much.

    They provide a lot of opportunity for learning.

    I enjoy working with customers and colleagues.

    Cons

    The recent layoffs and financial problems have made it difficult to focus on delivering value. There is a lot of uncertainty and people are waiting for clarification on the company's future direction and structure.

    The organizational structure is such that everyone is forced to focus on individual application silos. It is difficult to do something that benefits the company as a whole if it doesn't advance your silo's agenda

    The company is very large, it is hard to understand the entire portfolio. Nobody can explain the entire healthcare experience and how Siemens products fit into that experience across the entire suite, especially if you cross the former operating company boundaries.

    Sales sometimes sells "concepts" that do not exist as products - not a problem unique to Siemens.

    Advice to Management

    Kill the silo mentality - change the organizational and incentive structure to make it happen.

    Appoint a CTO who can drive consistency in technology adoption between applications.

    Clarify what our portfolio is.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Diverse company. Internal mechanisms typically are functional. Sales look at #'s and make decisions based on best direction to head. Sometimes too political though. a lot of locations to choose from around tthe west. Need to seek them out.

    Cons

    Not always a people friendly company...very large and fragmented. Need more cohesiveness. Need to continue to grow and focus on critical intitiatives. Not just hoping sales will come...need to drive it and own it. Work closer with other departments and divisions. Keep up with current business operating mechanisms. Seek input from variety of resources fro best course of actions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the business and what makes the most sense from a customer, employee and leadership perspective.
