Principal Engineer (Current Employee), Alpharetta, GA – May 12, 2015
Pros: Good medical benefits, decent pay
Cons: Not enough room to list them all
There was a time when this company would have enthusiastically received 5 stars. It was a generous, competitive, fun place to work. Over the past 3 or so years, it has implemented a most hellish sort – more... of "lean" program, first laying off a large number of really good people and then forcing the remnant of the former work force to do all the work -- and more -- that the entire work force used to do. This has turned the place into a virtual sweatshop. No one is happy with their job. Senior and Principal-level professionals are resigning left and right because of the long hours and miserable work conditions. Managers are telling their employees to only log 40 hours in the work week -- these people who are working up to 60 and more hours just to stay ahead of the workload. It is unbelievably top-heavy, with management keeping aloof and isolated, away from the workers. – less

A typical day at Siemens Energy was never very typical. Never performed the same task two days in a row. Even an assignment that has been done a thousand times was always different in some way. It was – more... a great experience to be around people who were well qualified. I had the opportunity to learn a lot and better myself from the people around me. The hardest part of the job was having to make on the spot decisions and hold tolerances as low as .0005", which also happened to be the most enjoyable part of my job. No micro managing. – less

I had the hone of working for the most incredible manager and mentor in my life. The Siemens job culture is a great one and provably the best one in the Energy Industry up to this point. Somehow..there is always a reason to celebrate...a Bday, promotions, completion of a project which are celebrated with a class act. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people since my best friends are Siemens employees. I love the onboarding program as well as the fact that your manager and director are truly connected with you every step of the way. Clearly, a leader in the industry and the world. – less
