    I have been working at Siemens USA


    As a world wide company, they seem to experience less in terms of layoffs, it's a stable company. There are good career opportunities if you are relocatable. Average benefits and good training is available.


    Seems as if the workload keeps increasing, that management expects to do more with less, which leads to a lot of strife, stress, and missed deadlines. Definitely a process heavy company, as befitting a German company, which can slow development and progress down. Salaries are below industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realistic goals are needed, too many are set and all become behind schedule. Salaries should be in line with our European counterparts.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Siemens USA in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was originally hired as an intern at Siemens during my final semester of undergrad. At the end of the semester I interviewed for a full-time position there and was hired within a few weeks. The interview was scheduled for 3 hours, and it took every minute of that time. It is a very strenuous interview and is nearly all technical. Everyone was incredibly friendly, but it was definitely not an easy interview. They typically only hire the top students from the graduating class out of college.

    Interview Questions
    • The team was interviewing for works completely in C#; so I was asked pretty much all technically questions related to OO programming and managed programming languages. It was a very broad range of questions so be prepared for anything. One topic that they really drilled down on was memory management in C#. Just because its a managed language doesn't mean you don't have to think about managing memory appropriately, especially when dealing with a massive project. Make sure you know why not to throw an exception in a dispose method.   View Answer
