    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Siemens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you have a good attitude, there are others that are great as well
    The management is trying hard to make bottom line improvements, process improvements, and better deliveries.
    Flexibility to work from home when needed
    Good process for career paths and annual reviews
    Great product (VFD- medium voltage)
    Knowledgeable engineers
    All resources on site, including an HR rep

    Cons

    Below average salary
    Management processes and theories change too often, not allowing maturation to see results
    Quick to layoff during downturns, does not replenish staff during upticks
    Benefits continually decline
    Bonus structure is poor, no performance base bonus for majority

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a 5-year plan and don't readjust it continually. Shows that management isn't sure and makes the troops feel like "whatever, it will change in a minute anyway"
    Personnel turnover is too high, compensation needs to be value reward- reward top performers and provide incentives to stick around. When everyone gets the same increases your high performers look elsewhere and discourages all others.
