Analyst at Mission Foods
in Irving, TX

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Worked for the company under 10 years; it's a good company with a few drawbacks."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Don't! The corporate office has had a number of layoffs lately with no real explanation of why."

What don't you like about working at Mission Foods?

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Tell employees what's happening within the organization. Why layoffs Why are so many people leaving"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Understand that your employees are watching you just as you watch them. Lead by example and make the environment more conducive to growth."

Analyst at DataScan Technologies
in Alpharetta, GA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"An average company to work for."

What do you like about working at DataScan Technologies?

"Benefits. Upper management has good intentions but middle management is the hurdle."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Keep this as a last option... no latest technologies. Focus on just one product. No growth, very small place. Some people can be very challenging to work with. Middle management can improve a lot."

What don't you like about working at DataScan Technologies?

"It feels like you have to justify each and every action or decision... too much scrutiny and time spent on measuring every time you spend rather than focus on the actual work itself. Managers are totally of the reality grid or the problems faced by the team and not hands-on."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Trust your employees and build an environment of collaboration and respect of every job function. Provide some flexibility and don't hang a noose above the head of the employees."

Analyst at Siemens
in Malvern, PA

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Unstable and disloyal to hard workers."

What do you like about working at Siemens?

"It's generally based on the manager you have but most are flexible with working from home."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Hire more innovative people. Nurses do not make the best analyst especially since most do not have even the slightest technical background and their experience is normally limited to one area of the hospital. Different clinical analysts provide a more diverse background which will help improve the product."

What don't you like about working at Siemens?

"Management needs to be overhauled. The same management has been in place for too many years and they in turn hire more like themselves. Most cannot make a proper decision for the future and are completely reactionary. They should be driving the industry instead of the customers drive them. Also, there is no loyalty to the employees. Financially they are stealing from them. Raises were postponed for 7-8 months without retroactive pay and now they are holding a paycheck that will be paid out after you quit or retire."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Management needs to be more innovative and proactive. Learn how to hire more people who are striving for the future instead of the status quo."

"Unsustainable work load. Bring work home every night and usually work most weekends. There is no such thing as a 40 hour work week anymore but this is Ridiculous! There is a huge disconnect between HR, Management and Employees. They implemented a Take as much vacation as you need policy (as long as you get your work done). Everyone brings there laptop on vacation so they can meet deadlines. It seems like this change was made to avoid having to paying out unused vacation time when people quit. Many inexperienced managers."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"You overwork and beat the hell out of your employees and then wonder why your quality is so bad. After a while people get worn down and just don't care anymore. Put your employees in a position to be successful."
