    I have been working at Siemens full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Switched on and knowledgeable teams, understanding and supporting middle management with a focus on continual development and training of staff. Good ethnic and gender diversity within the teams.

    Cons

    Appears to be quite politically driven, can affect decisions in business that would otherwise be quite simple. Little to no cohesion with the upper management at times can make it feel like they are like faceless men.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction and bonding with lower level teams would be good to promote cohesion, to work better towards the bigger picture.

    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.
