    I have been working at Siemens full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technology leader, established support structure for career development, ability to relocate internationally. Depth of knowledge very good in most countries. Good training opportunities exist.

    Cons

    Company politics can be counterproductive at times, very process driven, not very nimble. Frequent global restructuring tends to create a significant amount of inward focus.

    I worked at Siemens as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Could basically set my own hours as an intern, provided I still worked 40 hours. This may be division specific, as my manager was awesome.

    Cons

    Pay was slightly below what other's generally pay for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with every large company, you have to expect a large amount of red tape. I would only say that their needs to be more set guidelines as far as what our division was expected to do, and what lies outside our prerogative.

    I worked at Siemens part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Office culture was really great and you were very well included in the project work there. There a great possibilities of getting an great insight into a big multinational company.

    Cons

    It can be quite political working at Siemens, especially at the headquarters. Creative ideas have a hard time and pushing them trough can be like running against walls.
