Another engineer goes through the revolving door...
Giving everything away and not making any profit doesn't constitute getting your shit together.
To all the former DX staff that left and a still bitter and twisted get on with with your life, for the rest of you that knock Siemens Dx its because your are scared we are getting our SH*T together and we are going to get you. Its been a few long years but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I am not management at DX just one of the workers, who is proud of the people that work in DX.
they don't bother setting them up on email now.. just let them use email@example.com until they leave.
Revolving door soon to start turning again soon.
If there are any engineers who are reading this... do not make the mistake and work for SIEMENS DX, SIEMENS AS A COMPANY IS GREAT TO WORK FOR!!! But DX is and will always be the shit hole that it is today!!! they do not give a shit about any of there staff, it is and will always be the exclusive club of the ex-Bayer / Chiron group. The sooner SIEMENS get this the better for all!!!!
Another engineer to move on
Not Melbourne or Sydney
Salesman: we will put the track here..
Customer: If we put the instruments on the track here we can't get into our built in fridge..
Salesman: we will make the track longer!
Muppet Management still at work.
How do you define an engineer?
Speaking of engineers how many bone fide engineers are there in Australia
Ah, but this is why it is so important to look after the engineering "experience" and NURTURE it!!! Not just having lab people who think they are engineers -out there fixing instruments by throwing copious amounts of parts at the problem till somehow they fix it! AT the end of the day that is what you get when the company is run by sales!! Hardly any good techs left now, I feel for the good few that are left , from what I here the culture stinks to high heaven with no regard for their technical people! I would not and would never recommend working for DX Australia ever again! The revolving door will always keep revolving when morons are in charge!
either way, customer can't wait until late for a new bulb as Siemens engineer won't turn up until overtime starts. Buys bulb from Roche and realises that he has been kept in the dim light for years by Siemens.
How long does it take?
Step 1 - have a meeting.
Step 2 - assign engineers
Step 3 - send out job to engineer
Step 4 - find they are not trained on light bulb replacement
Step 5 - find another engineer that is
Step 6 - first engineer looks at the light bulb and thinks it is an apps problem
Step 7 - customer gets pissed at the stuffing around and buys another companies light bulb (which they find is cheaper in the end)
Joke: how many Siemens Australia engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?
1 to help the other two who are not properly trained.
1 to make the spare bulb from string.
1 to... oh he left.. just 2 then.
if you dont like it here we can make you leave...
Last poster was management - English a second language.
there is worse places to work
We are all happy here.
Again, I'll have what previous poster is having! :-)
Another Vic engineer...Can't blame him the atmosphere is toxic! But we are all happy, right KB?
"Another engineer is about to depart...stay tuned."
Anybody worthwhile or decent?
Remember the movie, "When Harry Met Sally", and the scene in the restaurant, where Sally faked an orgasm?
Well, I'll have what the previous poster is having! :-)
No, we are all happy here.
Another engineer is about to depart...stay tuned.
Since when has Siemens ever "SOLD" anything, just look at the bottom line.
REALLY! not selling more Haematology equipment. Haem/Coag has always been the poor cousin. They were always an Immuno Chem company as far back as ADC. Just look at the fools running the Dx, mostly from Immuno apps background.
That may change now they have been forcefully integrated into Medical. There a few that should be nervous as hell IMO.
You forgot to mention molecular, and no longer selling heamatology, just supporting existing customer base... what a lovely mess!!
So who got their pink slips today then?
Sebia and Sakura.
Place your bets. Who will the reaper come for
Big announcements tomorrow, Christmas downsizing about to happen.
which apps person from the west has seen the light?
Aren't Roche and Abbott the underperforming divisions of Siemens? Or am I 2 years ahead of myself?
Not to worry, when the customers wont sign with Bayer anymore, opps Siemens.... there will be plenty of jobs for engineers going at Roche and Abbott... may you all find jobs!! LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL!
X - Factor lol Singing or dancing?
Apps person - SR?
lol abt the OT comment. Seems some will have to change their ways then.
Real time ? What does that mean? What time were they doing it in before?
ALL field service work is done is real time now... they really must trust you guys??? START LOOKING FOR OTHER JOBS BOYS!
Sonic is trying to leave by going on the X-Factor, is that how bad they drive people to go???
Apps person from the west has seen the light.
Engineers, now tracked every second of every day.
And the quality of the guys they have to escalate to.....
But this is exactly what happens when management lets years of experience walk out the door....Not even thinking of the consequences?? Remember if you dont like it here we can make you leave! As long as you escalate guys , its all good , you dont have to fix a thing!
Phone a friend... you mean bring a friend. Recently they had at least 3 guys peering inside the immulite at our lab scratching their heads over what turned out to be a rather silly fault...
Well you would need to get paid heaps to save for the medical expenses - if you hadn't noticed they always have their phones to their ears, hate to see how many of them end up with brain tumors due to over use of their phones because of inadequate training and no ability to open a manual and work out a problem for themselves - phone a friend seems the order of the day!
