    I worked at Siemens full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Siemens is a large stable company with good benefits and a good culture. When work slowed down in one department management would loan personnel to other departments instead of laying people off. Overall, I enjoyed working for Siemens.

    Cons

    Siemens is a large company where it is possible for you to become just a number in certain situations. There are times when you may be asked to travel temporarily.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and remain in contact with your employees
