    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Siemens provides a great benefits package. The dress code is casual and they offer lots of fun activities. Good chance for advancement from within.

    Cons

    Migrating too many positions off-shore. Company is a little too top heavy. They give generous PTO but finding the time to take it is near impossible due to work load.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to provide a better work/life balance and enforce employees to use their PTO so that they have a chance to renew and revitalize to avoid burn out.

    I worked at Siemens as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Loved learning about combustion turbines and how they help provide us all with electricity.

    Cons

    It seems like this industry will be hurt eventually by renewable energy. It will take a while but it has to happen eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. My boss was humble and kind. Could definitely of spent my career working for him. Great team too.

    Pros

    Travel. Manager that you actually work under for SEI, is great.

    Cons

    Low pay for the amount of work they want you to do. Hiring Manager for Siemens Fossil Services does not want to pay a good hourly rate. They do not give yearly raises. 100 % travel.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating the temporary outage workers better. Give them raises and open up some seasonal jobs.

    Pros

    Diverse and great amount of various job types to wade through as needed. Great amount of variance between different organizations.

    Cons

    Some management will step on anyone to get where they need to be whether right or wrong and have some questionable relationships that position them in their jobs. Nepotism is everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Watch how those in management truly treat their employees and those under them. What you 'see' isn't what is real and you are losing a great amount of employees and reducing passion for ones work when you let a few buy their way up.

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with, engaged and competent. A good name to have on your resume but it's a trap to stay there too long. Good compensation package but not outstanding.

    Cons

    Gas turbine business is a plodding dinosaur, losing its market to faster, smarter dinosaurs in an industry that is becoming obsolete. Massive layers of bureaucracy and mindlessly counterproductive procedures, favoritism especially among the Germans, fractured and uncommunicative organization, unprofessional treatment of professional people. Management spends far too much time congratulating themselves, but for no good reason. Energy has leaned on the corporation to try to buy their competitors, but that strategy has about run its course.

    Advice to Management

    Get yourselves out of the way while there's still time for someone else to save the business. The biggest problem is you.
