Very productive place to work. Dealing with both old issues and the new ones that come up each day.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – June 2, 2016
A typical day begins with the "to do list" from the previous day. I've learned that even when projects are closed out, old issues still pop up sometimes. Great management Great co-workers The hardest part of the job was dealing with tech that didn't report to me directly The most enjoyable part of the job was traveling to the places where project work was being conducted.

Lead Technician / Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – October 24, 2016
I learned a lot about the mesh wireless networks that were being tested out in major cities. Learned to work with the local government to provide support for the general public. Learned how to manage my support team as a lead technician.
I'm very pleased with my experience with Siemens. The managers I worked with were incredibly helpful when I needed anything. The project working with the power grid is extremely complex. One of the biggest projects I've worked on, with international customers who run the wires and systems that deliver power to the world.
Flexible with work life balance.
Long commute (my choice). Still, it was a lot of driving.
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Buffalo Grove, IL – October 12, 2016
-Coordinating the logistics of Ultrasound Equipment for domestic and exports. -Coordinating the Pickup of the equipment. -Preparation of export documents Learn to maintain open communication with vendors and peers in different locations.
Management with different approaching and attitudes.
Diversity of co-workers,
The hardest part of the job was depending from vendors to have a final shipment.
The enjoyable part of the job when customer had the final product deliver.
Good people, company struggling with foreign competition , economic down turn. A lot of change in personal, constant need for improvement in design concepts. Hardest part of the job was the constant changes in assembly procedures.
Too bureaucratic. Too many fat cat middle managers. CEO seemed to have lost vision. Ceo was a VP at earlier company, saw an opportunity to ride the wave back up and make money for himself coz the earlier ceo bill utt screwed up and took the stock down. Unluckily for the new ceo the market conditions degraded and could never ride up.
It is a very inclusive environment to work but some senior management clique up and form some sort of club where a few junior officers are favored. Of course this is not a culture in Siemens as a company, it is a culture in some specific locations.
Product Evangelist (Former Employee) – 西安市 – September 29, 2016
My duty is • Led exceptional customer service and answer questions in a quick manner • Let the customers know the function and capabilities of the product Actually it was a really experience for me, because at the beginning, the company was asking for some males to support their work, not females. I was attracted by the job distribution, so I was going to try. During the interview, I got the job by my academic skills.
Onsite Functional Manager/Hiring Manager (Current Employee) – Vance, AL – September 28, 2016
I have learned how to manage a group of 35+ employees. The hardest part of my job is putting folks on Performance improvement Plans and having to let them go when the objectives are not met. The most enjoyable part of my job is training. I love watching folks learn and having that "aha" moment when they really get what I am trying to teach.
* Great brand and technology, but challenge with openness, communication and delivering it to market
Field service engineer HVDC and FACTS systems (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – September 20, 2016
* Great brand and technology, but challenge with openness, communication and delivering it to market * Great people, but often challenged by other requirements in working and communicating collaboratively * Good marketing, but often challenged to get the synthesis correct and sales force enabled with proper messages * Good compensation * Good training, but challenged by too much, which adds to work-life balance issues
Mechanical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Coralville, IA – September 19, 2016
Sitting at a computer for 8 hours a day got tedious and since company is small, not many people to converse with daily. The people were awesome but more focused on staying to themselves than working together
