    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay
    I cant really say anymore. They shrink benefits each year. Maybe they will read this and change. Its a job I guess.

    Cons

    -Sexism
    -Politics
    -Micro managing
    -Desire to shrink budgets affecting progress
    -No work life balance - If you have a family, they dont care.

    Daughter attempted suicide a couple months ago. Asked my manager for some help and understanding. Was told I would have to chose whats more important. If you have family issues, steer clear of Siemens.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of management that does not care about the welfare of their people.

    Favoritism plays a huge role here.

    See people as people and instead of numbers and/or replaceable. Some people have a value that can't be replace with a new person off the streets with no experience.

    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

    Good benefits. Flexible hours. Relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    Unorganized. Siemens is not good with standardization. There's a lot of "recreating the wheel". Though it's a big company, it feels like a one man show many times.

    Overburdened with process and managers.

    Empower your team. The team is overburdened with process and approvals.
