    Pros

    Siemens is focused heavily on R&D and make their own products. A lot of training opportunities and the benefits are not bad. 401k match dollar for dollar up to 6%

    Cons

    Management is beholden to shareholders and therefore the company is constantly changing middle and upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and be actively engaged leaders. Managers seem far to distant and focused on way to many meetings instead of making decisions.

    Pros

    Siemens is a well respected company, providing the possibility to work at multiple places and job function.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to the rest of the industry. Managers are not well versed in proactive sales. PM's are the face of the company. Leaving this facility at a disadvantage. PM's are good at projects, not good at customer retention.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your salesforce. Stop depending on project managers for developing your key account relationships.

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

    Pros

    They made the switch to their company fairly seamless, no change in my income or work hours. It basically meant a new polo shirt and a new name on my checks, that's about it.

    Cons

    It was clear that their focus was maximizing profit. When we started, there were 9 employees on site to cover the 3 shifts, 7 days a week. When I left, they had downsized to 6 employees, which made it very difficult to take sick or vacation days as we were on a permanent skeleton crew.

    Advice to Management

    Consider having enough people onsite to ensure that the employees can actually utilize their vacation/sick days and maintain a decent level of morale.

    Workload sometimes is too much to handle within a short time frame and upper management may be tough at times.

    Try to be a little flexible when it comes to schedules and accepting new methodologies.
