Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mount Prospect, ILNovember 4, 2017
Siemens has a strong industry presence. Did building technologies well and kept high standards for their automation services. Tried to be innovative, but was a little lacking on implementation.

SR. PROJECT MANAGER (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 21, 2017
A typical work day will fly by, there is much to do, sometimes though, as a PM, you don't have the proper support so you have to do much of the leg work which takes you away from what your truly supposed to be doing...Managing a project.

First rate products and technical services/ declining culture
Service Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYOctober 21, 2017
Siemens Industry offers first rate solutions and service work for large scale environmental controls, including hospitals, school systems and manufacturing facilities. their technicians are well trained and critical thinkers. Pricing is considerably higher than their competitors making it difficult for them to capture contracts with non-critical environments. Management is detached and the culture is stagnant. RIF's (reduction in force) with regularity and no one ever feels secure in their position. There is a good deal of in-fighting between branch locations and the needs of the customer often do not take priority.

Fire Service Poorly Run
Client Service Manager - II (Current Employee) –  Florham Park, NJOctober 4, 2017
Siemens as a whole is a great place to work. The fire service division however is overwhelmed and poorly managed with little foresight of critical management criteria. Somewhat of a disconnect with the real world scenario between upper management and managers. However it is an agreeable place to work if your position is well defined and your role is clearly presented.
Pros
Company car, flexible schedule
Cons
workload and expectations are way too much - Poor management

Director, Business Line Head (Former Employee) –  VirtualOctober 2, 2017
I enjoyed the quality of the people. The hardest part was the long work week, grueling schedule and the lack of understanding from senior management on the direction needed for the company and how to get there.

Poor management with high expecations from employees, low pay
Design/Drafter (Former Employee) –  Cypress, CASeptember 27, 2017
Considered to be one of the most reputable companies in the world, lack of management and very low pay make for very poor working conditions. There is a high demand to get work done yet I was pulled in many directions to complete several tasks as well. Hardest part of the job? Satisfying management.
Pros
Up to date software.
Cons
Having to document every minute of work with a ticket using SAP.

Manufacturing delays were too common.
Sr. Sales Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bismarck, NDSeptember 13, 2017
Too often, Siemens Industry - construction division, has streaks where they are unable to forecast when their products will ship to their customers, which causes deep and lingering customer dissatisfaction.

Their customer support personnel are not given adequate resources to provide quality customer support.

These challenges make it unpleasant being in a role which has direct contact with the customer.
Pros
Very high quality, well designed products. Good benefits. Great coworkers.
Cons
Poor upper level management control of manufacturing.

Tumultuous Transition
Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  MidwestSeptember 12, 2017
Locally, team is filled with capable people who are easy enough to work with. Globally, getting ready to enter the Fourth Year of a new CEO - Many changes in Year 2 and 3, likely many more in Year 4, most coming from Country and Global Management and forced down in the name of increased productivity. Seems the upper management is stepping over dollars to pick up dimes these days and has no clue what is actually happening at the customer touch points nor that their technology is behind the competition.
Pros
High Salary, Prestigious Employer, Personal Development
Cons
High Stress, Accountant Run

Large Company with growing pains
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Pelham, ALSeptember 8, 2017
A typical day at Siemens depends on your position. Some people complete 50 tasks in the first 2 hours, work extremely hard and have such a large workload that they bring it home with them and work several more hours at night. Others seemingly have nothing to do all the time but still remain employed. Management does not care about employees or retaining them.
