    Pros

    Working in IT at Siemens Energy immediately thrust you into the world of large Corporate IT. Depending on your ambition, you will be given far more responsibility than your salary or title warrant. That means you get to learn fast and build a fantastic resume. It also is a place where you can fade into the background if that's what you choose. Overall it's a place with top notch colleagues and great opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Like any large company, politics and bureaucracy are a massive headache. Sometimes things are done for absolutely no good reason. And getting things done quickly is nearly impossible. You can make changes, but they will be slow and frustrating. If you live in the US, working with German colleagues can be a joy and a headache. But you will gain experience in learning to navigate a globally diverse culture.

    If you are in IT there is a good chance you can get paid better elsewhere. Your raises won't keep you in line with market value, so that is something you will need to weigh. I think it is a great place to spend the first 3 - 5 years of your career and then maybe come back later on for the job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for better ways to compensate technical talent in a changing market. Streamline process, and look for the best tools to empower your workforce, not what just makes sense because of personal bias.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Siemens Energy in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on their jobs website, July 2014. I did not hear anything for several weeks, tried contacting several Siemens HR people with no success. I finally emailed my resume to a person I had worked with several years before in that company and he was able to get it to the hiring manager. The hiring manager called me for a quick phone interview the last week of August (2014). We just basically talked about why I wanted to leave my present company and what I knew about the position I was interested in. I met the hiring manager for lunch the next Friday; talked about my background, general Q&A back and forth. Everything went good and I was scheduled for a panel interview with 2 senior managers about a week and a half later. During the panel interview we talked about strengths and weaknesses, former positions and future goals. This position works directly with a high level customer, so I had to meet with the customers representatives before they would make me an offer. There were no real technical questions discussed during the customer interview, just making sure there would not be any personality issues. Everything went good and I did receive an offer a few days later.

    Interview Questions
    • Role play between an unhappy customer and the lead engineer (me) discussing engineering and communication failures.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    By the end of the interview process, I was on good terms with the hiring manager, we negotiated salary, vacation and start date before the offer letter was drafted. I accepted the first offer and started soon after.
