    I have been working at Siemens full-time for 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.
