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

    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.

    You can have a long career.

    Favoritism plays a huge role here.
