    UX Designer Intern in Siemens Corporate Research

    I have been working at Siemens

    Pros

    Nice people, cutting edge research and the opportunities to get onboard in a variety of projects in fields like healthcare, industry and productivity softwares. Softball team is a plus!

    Cons

    Really there isn't any noticeable cons for this job. To be very picky, maybe some of the projects are so big that can last for years, and being an intern means you cannot be involved in every stage.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career. Not a good choice if you are an established scientist

    Cons

    Promotions are too quick and almost everyone gets them. Seen many individuals promoted when they dont understand the fundamentals of science.
