Acts as IT Service Desk Specialist (Former Employee), Manila, Philippines – July 13, 2013
Working with Siemens was a great opportunity for me because I was frustrated back then before I got hired by the company. So many personal issues and challenges I was going through then.

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee), Stoney Creek, ON – July 5, 2013
Pros: broad range of project types allow for a stimulating work environment, coworkers are generally very solid people.
Cons: upper management is disconnected from the realities of each "profit center", and operate in a reactionary environment without much forethought or a plan.
In Canada, Siemens decided to change their entire method of tracking and documenting a projects status and the billing methods. This exercise went off the rails almost immediately due to a lack of preparation and understanding of the complexities involved in making such a radical change in operational procedures. There was a considerable amount of confusion – more... created among the rank and file, resulting in a serious decline in the companies cashflow and ultimately the laying off of a large number of personnel. – less

Cons: excessive and un-necessary use of these controls.
Siemens had become too bureaucratic in their behavior creating more problems in managing sales and deployment. Although Siemens was an engineering company, the control of the business had shifted from engineering into the hands of financial managers. Result was excess use of financial control which badly affected project execution. Inter-regional conflicts – more... were also there.
This all resulted in Siemens lacking behind in technology transitions and finally were sold out to Nokia to become Nokia Siemens Networks. – less
