    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Siemens full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Innovative technology Hard working and passionate colleagues

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and what feels like a lack of integrity at the executive level is killing this once respected company in Australia. The toxic culture is devastating for the employees who only want to do the best job they can, but can’t due to narcissistic ‘leaders’ with their heads in the sand. Current global restructure is highlighting this even more. I wouldn’t recommend Siemens as a good place to work to anyone.

    Time to move on and let a team take over who actually cares what happens to the company and the people working there who want to make a difference by working at Siemens.
