Here’s what current and former employees have to say on Glassdoor:
“Pros: Seems more laid back atmosphere compared to other … competitors; PTO; awesome benefits; 401k match; family-first; very decent salary; high commission payouts for surpassing quota; knowledgable managers; work hard, play hard mentality; nice company car; schedule flexibility; not micromanaged as long as you’re producing; products usually sell themselves; global presence. Cons: Re-organizations; somewhat high turnover rate; internal processes cumbersome; too many hands in the pot at certain times; CRM tool not the best; constant role changes to sales support; resources always available for help, but difficulty finding the correct person in a sea of employees; frequent process changes just as you adapt to the last change; generous PTO that seems like everyone is always on vacation or out of the office.” —Current employee
“Pros: Highly professional; extremely customer-focused; extremely quality-focused. Cons: Demanding in a good way; you will work hard, occasionally for prolonged periods.” —Current employee
“Pros: Big company with big company resources; laid back and comfortable place to work; coworkers were generally super nice people; cutting edge research and work in some fields. Cons: Not too exciting compared to other tech companies; feels like working at a big tech company circa 1970s; management’s Teutonic cultural proclivities sometimes trickles down and shows through (not really a con – sometimes was funny and charming).” —Former employee
“Pros: Compensation; hours are minimal; great vacation time. Cons: Not a lot of great R&D managers to work for; no chance to work remotely; promotions are rare.” —Current employee
“Pros: The work you do has the potential to make a big impact; in general, has very good people that want to do the right thing for the company and other colleagues; the world within Siemens is huge and you can go almost anywhere and do almost anything. Cons: Lots of red tape, processes, signatures; your time is consumed by firefighting or meetings, very little opportunity to make real progress or innovate; unless you’re in a dedicated program, long-term professional development/career planning is often forgotten.” —Former employee
“Pros: Healthy work-life balance; friendly and collaborative coworkers; respectful environment; opportunities to improve patient lives; steady pay from a reliable company with a solid reputation. Cons: Payment is below market rate (particularly for the Bay Area); institutional barriers to innovation and flexibility; low morale; high turnover; occasional toxic interactions (rare, but acute and poorly addressed); questionable decisions by upper management; employee feedback seems to fall on deaf ears.” —Former employee
