    I have been working at Siemens full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Siemens is a great place to work. There are so many opportunities that are available if you are willing to move around. There are so many people willing to help and you never feel as if the company has no direction. Goals and plans are explained clearly.

    Cons

    There are some issues when dealing with managers who are offsite and not present during your work day. There are some confusions with the European way of doing things and the US way of doing things. Communication can get fuzzy. Work/Life balance is touted but never followed.
