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

    Pros

    Decent salary / commission. Learn new technologies. Industry leader. Impossible to get fired.

    Cons

    Impossible to get fired. Even the clearly bad performers were kept and moved to other positions. Good ole boy network in this huge organization. Never any new blood, just the same old people moving each other around.

    Advice to Management

    'Process' doesn't cure all ills. Get rid of the dead wood and look outside of the same old circle.
