    I worked at Siemens full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good benefits, steady (if slow) improvement year on year in terms of working environment and tools

    Cons

    Giant corporation...decision makers so far from the front lines that they are ignorant of the negative impact of their decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen without letting pride get in the way. Include lower levels before big decisions are made so you are aware of negative impact...and you don't have to be in the spot of reversing your decision publicly.
