    Pros

    Great benefits and outstanding flexibility. Siemens allows you to balance work and family, and also provide programs to help grow you and your family.

    Cons

    Hard to move up, employees rarely leave willingly so you have to jump groups to get major promotions or salary adjustments.

    I worked at Siemens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay. Teamwork is excellent. Tech supervisors are amazing and ensure you have what you need to succeed. Plenty of overtime if you are interested in that.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not there. Instead of hiring more techs for the work load they just continue to pile on the overtime overworking the techs. Spending tons of time out of town and away from family.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to ensure you don't burn out the techs.

    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.
