It is a fast paced environment and does not balance job work and life.
Pros: learning new skills
Cons: does not balance job work and life.
It is a great learning environment. However, it is very fast paced and you have to keep up or you will not stay employed. I learned Six Sigma Green Belt and Project Management at Siemens. I also learned SAP.
Before the recent reorganization, I enjoyed the fast pace, interacting and working with various people across different business units.
The hardest part of the job was learning the gazillion in-house acronyms.
