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

Pros

Its been a great learning experience, and I will miss the people I interact with daily. My manager was a very flexible guy, and very reasonable- best manager I have ever worked for.

Cons

There is a constant threat of downsizing. You can feel it in the air that the senior execs genuinely do not care about anyone, its just money- plain and simple. This place is run by a schizophrenic sinking bank.

This last round of layoff's, I didn't survive. It seems that whoever was in charge of making these decisions, really just threw darts at a board instead of actively thinking what is best for the company. Not calling myself extremely important, but our team was short staffed as it was... What a bunch of numbskulls running this place!!

Advice to Management

Learn how to really run a business, not just milk it for all the money you can get. I guarantee they will be bankrupt before the end of next year.

    I worked at Unify full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Global presence and distributed management team

    Cons

    Siemens has little to no positive brand recognition in the market place. Compared to the competition, Siemens rarely rates higher than 4th or 5th place in their respective product categories. Sales professionals seldom stick around longer than a year or two. Declining customer base, layoffs, customer complaints and escalations are just a way of life.

    Advice to Management

    Time to reevaluate all levels of the entire management team.
