    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, people work hard

    Cons

    Constant change, FDA paranoia with no timeline or details to the readiness. No encouragement to become better, but rather a close minded and authoritative approach to running the floor/managing its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Move people up based off of merit (based off of experience, education, and work ethic); as opposed to those who've become 'Yes-men' and will eventually continue with the same culture

    I have been working at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Company car is horrible. Base salary is below norms. Good industry reputation though. Good starter job for a recent grad trying to break into medical sales. Not meant for veterans.

    Cons

    Way way too much red tape, mindless paperwork, stifling bureaucracy. Micromanagement is oppressive. Way too many meetings. No time to call on customers.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off the forecasting funnels spreadsheets call logging etc.

    I worked at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time

    Pros

    Siemens is still the place to be in Diagnostics. The best product line and the ability to make a lot of cash remains.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring of the organization, but you learn to deal with it. They have challeneges with less than a complete portfolio.

    Advice to Management

    Promote stability moving forward. This is something that will pay dividends in the retention in the sales force.

    Pros

    Compensation is good, not great for someone who has just graduated, or is even studying in the same field (they cover your tuition if its relevant to what you're doing). Benefits aren't too bad either.

    Cons

    Senior Management needs to do a better job in keeping their employees informed of company happenings. Managers are only promoted to their positions based on familiarity instead of merit. Basically have to kiss a** in order for you to go up.

    Pros

    They paid really well and I had the chance to do a lot of different projects according to my interests.

    Cons

    It was a time of a lot of turnover and some employees weren't too happy, so that negativity was unfortunate but I still really enjoyed my time there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in interns. I learned a lot there and I would recommend any student to do an internship there!

    I worked at Siemens Medical Solutions Diagnostics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - strong current product offering with faithful customers
    - passionate employees who care about furthering healthcare

    Cons

    - although current product offering is strong, it has its limitations in the changing (aka reforming) healthcare landscape

    Advice to Management

    although loyalty is a myth, demonstrate some to the employees that are loyal to you. Also, top line revenue results isn't the be all end all ... don't take your eyes off of the margin.
