Group Lead, Tillsonburg Blade Facility (Current Employee) – Tillsonburg, ON – 18 May 2017
Everyday brings new and exciting challenges in the aftercare department at Siemens. From master plan changes and weekly output challenges to staff and weather. The work that is done here is very sensitive to time and weather, and depends very much on the entire plant for proper functionality. I have created and designed many different shift rotations and process plans to keep up with the changes in our customer market. Trialed and developed new tools and for improved performance and reduced time.
Billing Administrator/Analyst (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 27 April 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was able to work with many different departments and making daily responsibilities run smooth. The workplace was fun and everyone was willing to assist me in ensuring I understood my role and the impact it would have on the overall company.
IT Summer Student (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 26 April 2017
Every single day working here was a treat. The people are amazing and the facilities are top notch. Being a large company, there is also a lot of opportunity to move around and explore avenues you may be interested in.

Technical Sales Service Account Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 10 April 2017
Great benefits and pension plan Opportunity for training to further enhance work experience. A bias towards the French language speakers. Get the job done best way you know how mentality. Implementing best practices not easy to do when there were strong personalities who apposed them. The team building and events provided by the Siemens corporate culture.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 23 March 2017
I enjoy the flexibility of the family comes first dynamic. I have children, and they get sick, the play sports, and with proper notice, it usually is not a problem getting time off of work to be there for them. Also, the hours are flexible. I do notice however, as a temp worker for almost 3 years now, I find it discouraging to not know my jobs secure. Again, I have children and am raising them on my own, without knowing if my contract will ever become a permanent position.
Top-down German management style with lower than average salary
Manufacturing Process Engineer (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 22 March 2017
I have been with Siemens in several roles since graduating university and my biggest complaint is how little engineering work there actually is for one of the largest "Engineering" companies in the world. Most of the R&D work happens in Germany with some in US. Very little happens in Canada, where I work. Luckily I was hired to one of the only places with R&D and a fair-sized engineering department (~60-70). If you are an engineer who likes challenging technical work, I would stay away.
Assembly Operator, Mahle (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 3 March 2017
Assemble and inspect parts at a pace set by supervisor. Controllable speeds set by slowest worker on the line. Clean work area daily. Management pushed for more production which could result in bad parts.
Technical Support (Former Employee) – ontario – 28 February 2017
You will be frustrated by convoluted processes and procedures that make it as difficult as possible to follow them, and you MUST follow them. They are designed to keep the accountants happy. Siemens is an engineering company with more accountants than engineers. Compliance mentality. Claim to value innovation and excellence but will punish any attempts to improve/innovate until you are beaten into submission. Too many objectives, often conflicting. People who "manage up" do well.
Quotations specialist (Temporary) (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 February 2017
The management of the company is very good, there is high regard for individuality. The multicultural environment gives you a very good exposure to work with people with different cultural backgrounds which also helps in the overall development of one's outrlook.
A bit under staffed so there is excessive work load
