An angry former employee shared this in a review: "Management at Siemens often throws employees under the bus. Typically they would assign you a project with little to no explanation. They also expect you to be a mindreader. I was even told a few times to just "copy" another ad from google and tweak it slightly to make it "original". Pretty insulting when I was hired for my portfolio. They also don't care about plagiarism. Company values quantity or quality when hired. The pay is also lower than what most companies will offer for graphic design. Overall this experience isn't worth it unless you're desperate for a job...though beware that management will treat you quite poorly. There's also no room for advancement. They will literally laugh at you if you ask for a raise or promotion. You'll be stuck at whatever position you applied for. There's also a high turnover rate since they'll treat you like you're very replaceable. There's a reason why you see them hiring so much. Most employee typically don't last more than 3 months."

Operations Coor (Current Employee) says"The Canton Branch is completely mismanaged and littered with an unqualified and unprofessional business management team that does not support Customer focus or a healthy and well balanced work force. They put enormous pressure on all employees from project management, finance, collections and sales with unattainable and rediculous goals. The turn over and burn out rate in this office is embarrassing to say the least.NothingManagement"
Smart meter fitter (Former Employee) says"Don’t work here!!!! never ever manages don’t care about you only the bonus they can get to boost there salary, you will get too many jobs to do as an engineer and safety goes out the window if pushed to do a job by the manager and done wrong then any come backs your fault.

Project Management (Former Employee) says"Why, cheat and steal… While I worked there they marketed a product, (The 8000) Which we found was not actually ready for the market. Their clients griped, complained and sued. And it seems that most of the problems were blamed on the staff rather than the company that released a not ready for prime time product. Money was tight so the bonus structure was eliminated. And they cut the staff to the bone.NoneThey broke every promise he made to the staff in to their clients."
Software Engineer (Former Employee) says"A dysfunctional place to work. Goals change daily. Continually pressured to implement features quickly. Coworkers take a long time to answer questions. Each manager builds his/her own team silos.always have more than enough work to do.benefits are minimal"
Document Manager (Former Employee) says"I've worked in government contracting for years, and my time at SGT was the worst experience of my career. There was little to no communication, and the company is constantly going under reorganization, which leads to everything being in a constant state of disorganization and confusion. There was little to no guidance given for tasks. Emails often went unanswered. Middle managers were quick to throw their employees under the bus to save their skin. There was almost no work-life balance, and if you're not willing to work 60 hours a week or answer the phone at 10PM then prepare for lectures. The company is not equipped to support remote employees, but they continue to hire them. The equipment was faulty, but they would not replace it. Siemens is a great company, and it's a shame that SGT is bringing it down."
Sales Representative (Current Employee) says"Would have never gone to siemens if I knew how bad it was . They use a co to onboard you that is overseas . The upper management treats customers badly . They only think about profits and the new president wants to cut jobs and expenses . They have zero regard for their employees and it’s obvious to everyone"
Production Assembler (Former Employee) says"Management is very biased towards senior employees and put new recruits in a very negative workspace with other employees who misuse their power over new recruits"
Journeyman millwright / installation. (Former Employee) says"Wouldn't let me bring my own tools. Had 2 9/16th inch wrenches for 5 guys. Had to weld, operate equipment, assemble and layout due to non trained personnel. Left me stranded in buffalo n.y. The head boss in Texas had no idea how to run a job.NoneNone."
Engineer (Current Employee) says"A lot of unexperienced and bad managers no experience at all and No respect for women from specially managers and coworker from India. Favoritism among managers from same country and give their country men lead position. No carrier development. Air of employee do nothing and survived by a few who works hard .Most coworkers are niceWorst HR u"
IDN Sales Manager (Current Employee) says"horrible company to work for. Zero leadership horrible morale executive favoritism lack of advancement warped sense of reality inferior products lack of autonomy zero recognition of accomplishment terrible culture poor pay lack of vision not a place you’d ever want to work"
Site Installation Technician (Former Employee) says"Certain people are afforded opportunities due to race, gender and like ability. Often the person who knows the job is asked to work for the person who doesn't know the job, is lost in what management/ leadership is or does not have people skills. Unfortunately a lot of knowledge has started to leave the company due to clueless management practices."
Laboratorieingenjör (Current Employee) says"Var aldrig bra hos denna arbetsgivare. Rekommendera aldrig detta jobb"
Sales Representative (Former Employee) says"These folks rope young hopefuls in with the lure of easy money whilst secretly not even thinking of your being hired on in a full time position, they hide behind the masks of temporary agencies and the three months later they pull the rug out from under you. so your left with car payments mortgagees etc... thinking your finally on your way up and its a HUGE let down. Not one person reviews your performance or offers constructive criticisms to help keep you on the right track. Its as if they have some quota to fill. This is a horrible way to treat young men and women. Hire and tossed like an old paper towel. S.H.A.M.E !!!!!"
Product Specialty Sales Executive (Former Employee) says"Not a supported management team and has no idea of what the sales force needs and has working in the funnel. The AE's do not allow the specialist to get involved.good equipmentRobin Anderson"

Tom McCormick says"Bought a tumble dryer 03/05/19 paid big money then. On 21/12/20 it developed a fault that required an engineer visit. The engineer was out 23/12/20 but said he needed to order a relay, which he ordered before leaving. Almost three weeks later still waiting for the part from Siemens. This was our first Siemens product and it will be the last."
D Scott says"We had a new kitchen installed 18 months ago with all Siemens appliances. The service engineer came out after 12 months to repair the dishwasher and advised that the washer dryer would go next followed by the interstates fridge freezer and Oven. It’s not occurred in that order as the oven has now failed but sure enough one by one . Please don’t buy this poor poor product."
Sarah Talbot says"3 years ago we bought a siemens washing machine, what a mistake we had 6 repairs call outs eventually i asked for a replacement, they gave us a new one without a Guarantee, citizens advice say that dont forget your statutory rights concerning goods, a good point to remember for us general publicJust to add we are now having a problem with the new one!"
Ian Onley says"Siemens are driving climate change by working with Adani, an Indian coal mining company in Queensland, Australia, to build what would become the biggest coal mine in the southern hemisphere. Any company with any credibility in an age of climate crisis would be turning their backs on such proposal. For all the good work that Siemens have done in the past, they are now showing they don't care about anything but making money in the short term. Zero credibility, they care nothing for the planet, their business, humanity or their workers. Much less their own families. An absolute disgrace. The board at Siemens need a reality check. Forever tarnished in my view."
Janet McPherson says"I will never buy another Siemens product. Not for the first time, when we rang for support for an appliance that had failed, we had to wait nearly 10 days for an engineer to come out. They arrived with nothing to be able to fix it, only says it needed new parts that would take another week at least to arrive. They then charged us £100 for their trouble. Also, to complete the job would be £500. And - there would only be a 1 year guarantee. Beyond horrendous. We were appalled. When we as consumers are encouraged to get our appliances fixed, instead of replace it them, this is exactly why it makes no financial sense too do that. Needless to say, we will never use Siemens again. We rang AO and got a new appliance delivered the following day. Now that’s real customer service."
Roberto says"1918/5000 My elderly and retired father bought Siemens refrigerator just over 2 years ago. The refrigerator had problems right away with gas and the official Siemens-Bosch service center intervened twice without ever resolving the problem definitively but without ever witnessing my father signaling the refrigerator as faulty to Siemens. Shortly after the 2-year warranty, the technical service had to intervene a third time, again due to the gas problem, but the fridge was no longer repairable. At that point the Siemens Bosch assistance service instead of reporting the faulty fridge sold a new Bosch fridge to my father for 450 Eur, as shown in the receipt. He also asked my father to pay another 100 Eur without giving a receipt. In conclusion, they deceived a poor old pensioner. I reported all this to Siemens-Bosch customer service, sending all the documentation that proved the fridge was faulty and that my father had been deceived by proposing, as soon as the warranty was over, the sale of a new refrigerator instead of declaring the defectiveness of the product. I have sent all the documentation that demonstrates the above described, including also the signaling of collection of 100 Eur additional without receipt. They offered to extend the 1-year warranty (20 Euro value). I asked for a 3-year warranty extension (79 Eur value), but nothing. Also because maybe they don't think that their refrigerator won't have problems for 5 years! I also pointed out that my father paid 100 Eur without a receipt but without understanding why he paid. They told me to go and get a receipt for the 100 Eur, 80 km away !!! And in any case, after 2 months I haven't seen the 1 year warranty extension yet !!! I think I will report the incident to the authorities."
priya francis says"No way will buy siemens product in cmng days"
Liz says"I have a holiday house on Hydra. I bought a Siemens fridge freezer in 2015 from a shop on the Peloponnese. Our place was renovated and documents misplaced. In summer 2017 the fridge was not cold. I had to get a technician and the shop was uninterested because I had no paper work. The gas had leaked. This summer, the same problem. I found it impossible to find Siemens in Greece and gave up. Now I have to buy a new fridge freezer because after-refilling the gas and having a repair man here recently who did some repair at much expense, it has happened again. He told me that if it happened again, buy a new one. I thought Siemens was a reputable brand. But I will avoid buying their products."
