    Pros

    Siemens is a great brand but it can only be held back so long by its people.

    Cons

    The Great Central Zone has some really old school mentality players (especially in the building technology realm). How old, think not being able to use an iphone correct, not forward thinking, not connected (except to retirement communities) and talking with them is like watching paint dry. Trust me, don't risk your resume on building technologies with Siemens. Johnson Controls or Honeywell are far better performers in this area.

    Advice to Management

    Refresh management but don't let the old school management make the decision (we all saw what happens there in the Great Central Zone - the word "Great is a part of the zone name and should not be confused with leadership or performance).
