Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
If you have a desire to work with a company that is world wide, and they promote hiring within the Siemens family, consider even an entry position. I have been with the organization over 10 years and have been able to move through different roles as my knowledge of the business grew. If you have a good attitude, and a willingness to learn - you can go far. There are offices around the globe in a variety of business.

Pros

Drive, professionalism and positivity is rewarded

Cons

not for the timid, you have to own your own career, there is no hand holding. Sometimes good people may get overlooked due to shyness

Great management team

Wonderful team members however no work life balance. Too much work not enough people to go around. Went through new systems implementation but resources available to support it were either too busy to help or worked non North America hours which made it a challenge.

Pros

Amazing people

Cons

Long hours

No time to call it day. I could do it as I finish my job.

Good place to work

I enjoyed my time at Siemens AG. Ups and downs of course but overall a good experience and great co-workers. We didn't realize what we had until we left. Would recommend working for them and I would work for them again.

A calm organized workplace.

It was good for a starter job. Make sure to try new things, as they provide a good opportunity to branch out. They are good about break times and understand work and fun can be balanced.

One of the few best companies

This is one of the best companies I worked for. Everyone is ready to go an extra step in order to help others and support each others. One of the biggest advantages is working from home. Also, there is great work-life balance.

Never forget you're just a number.

Siemens Canada offers a lot of great benefits. Be aware when you apply / interview that there are multiple divisions in Canada (Healthineers, Smart Infrastructure, Digital Industries, Corporate, Real Estate, Software, etc etc) and that each division has it's own rules, benefits, and standards of employment. There are stock options, an excellent benefits program, good pay, and a bonus structure (if you qualify). There are lunches and breakfasts and holiday parties. The people are really, really great. Depending on the division, Siemens offers great work-life balance (working from home, flex hours etc) but that depends on your role. If you are in any type of Management function, you are expected to work overtime (12 hour days are not unusual) without complaining, and don't even think about going on vacation without your company phone. Opportunities for advancement depend on the division, and your manager can block you, if he chooses to. Collaboration between divisions is non-existent, and sometimes even in divisions, tech and sales don't get along. The inside joke is that "the Siemens way" means no training when you start a new job or get new responsibilities, you're just expected to figure it out. This isn't a start up. This is an established company where Management preaches a "speak up" culture, but it doesn't really exist. You may be able to wear jeans on Fridays, but this is still a really corporate environment with a lot of red tape and rules. At the end of the day, you're just a number.

A great workplace and amazing staff.

Siemens is a company that goes above and beyond to give employees challenging projects and also provides trust and support to help them meet those challenges successfully. While it offers benefits and perks like any modern creative company, Siemens is a culture that trusts that its employees will strive to do their very best work. Employees are also given stock options so that they know they have both a stake and reward in the company’s success.As for the benefits, Siemens staff are spoiled with flexible hours and vacation days, healthcare coverage, and extended parental leave – not to mention company outings and lunches.

The working enviroment was a bit sterile

The job was very demanding and for the amount of work involved, they easily needed 2-3 more people in order to keep up and get things done. it was so busy there was very little time to interact with other people.There were way too many meeting every week. The salary for the position was great.

Pros

Can work from home

Cons

Company is all on Wifi when it goes down you can't work

Overall good

Very rules focused culture that I found difficult. The company lacks a sense of humour and made it difficult to work in that environment. I left for a better opportunity
