    I worked at Siemens IT Solutions and Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were generally knowledgeable and friendly.

    Cons

    Laid off due to loss of major account. While in HR signing papers, new boss I had never met asked if I had any questions. I told him I was surprised they would choose to layoff someone with my evaluation. (I was told by former boss I was rated second highest in entire department.)

    He then opened my folder and read my evaluation and said, "Hmmmm. Well, we sometimes have to make hard choices." It was apparent he never looked at my evaluation prior to the "exit interview."

    Advice to Management

    Actually take an interest in your number one resource: your employees

    Pros

    Siemens was an excellent and interesting place to work. They valued their employees and was open to new ideas and perspectives.

    Cons

    Sometimes the sheer size of the company was a bit overwhelming as it could be difficult to speak to the right people to get something done or changed or even just attempting to do regular duties.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to streamline as effectively as possible a clear roadmap of the entire business entity and constructively convey this to employees so they are not having to waste time and effort in getting things done.

    I worked at Siemens IT Solutions and Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits including vacation were always fair and reasonable, and getting promotions happened quite a bit (promoted three times in as many years, with a decent raise each time)

    Cons

    Often times my e-mails about HR things would be in a foreign language, one I didn't speak. My business unit (IT Services) was bought and sold about once every two and a half years over the last ten years. Pretty crazy. If you're involved on a Managed Services project, expect to only know your own project manager and never meet someone above him in rank. In three years, I met my boss's boss one time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the guys in the field, and make sure they feel like part of the company. As the Atlanta area had twenty or more big clients with Siemens contracts, it would have made sense to have local area meet-ups or team events at least once a year. I felt more involved and worthwhile working at Bank of America, who is an order of magnitude bigger than Siemens.

    Corporate culture seems totally dead at Siemens, no life, no love.

    Pros

    1 - Extremely good opportunity to learn
    2 - Co-workers are very helpful
    3 - Great stability

    Cons

    1 - Cannot move between teams and locations

    3 - Time taken to consider opportunities within is very slow

    Advice to Management

    There should be more open door policy to approach and discuss with managers.

    Good benefit, flexible working time. Stable and nice working environment. Any way it is a very good company to work for.

    I worked at Siemens IT Solutions and Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Through my many years with this company, under various company names through buy-outs, I met a lot of wonderful people. This is a large, global company so there is a lot of opportunity for training and advancement.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, they are a company who is not considered with the welfare of their employees. They consider you lucky to have a job and don't care how unhappy you are in that job. There is no work life balance. Their concern is their bottom line, not you. I truly wish this company had cared more for their employees (the company name is ATOS now and I hear they aren't much different), because they could've been a force to be reckoned with.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need to feel that they matter. Telling them they are lucky to have a job and to keep their complaints and suggestions to themselves is no way to run a company. There is a reason this company keeps being bought out by others.
