    Pros

    Siemens is a great brand but it can only be held back so long by its people.

    Cons

    The Great Central Zone has some really old school mentality players (especially in the building technology realm). How old, think not being able to use an iphone correct, not forward thinking, not connected (except to retirement communities) and talking with them is like watching paint dry. Trust me, don't risk your resume on building technologies with Siemens. Johnson Controls or Honeywell are far better performers in this area.

    Advice to Management

    Refresh management but don't let the old school management make the decision (we all saw what happens there in the Great Central Zone - the word "Great is a part of the zone name and should not be confused with leadership or performance).

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

    Pros

    Nice equipment, Pay was OK. High profile position where you could see the results of your success. Co workers for the most part were a great bunch!

    Cons

    Upper management in our division didn't have a clue what the challenges of our job was and given the way they treated us they didn't much care to learn

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter much now, we lost the contract and the entire division pretty much shutdown.

    Pros

    Large company for education and learning. Good benefits

    Cons

    Does not see value with employees with over 25 years experience with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please look at the intangibles that older people of value bring to the company. I just was RIF'd when I 34 years with Siemens.
