    Pros

    Work life balance, Freedom to express and innovate, great perks and benefits

    Cons

    High level politics at exec mgmt level proves to be defaming Cisco culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of biased, unfruitful old timers from management, who have not been able to show positive results in 2 years.
    Consider employee satisfaction and value transparent feedback about management. Although skip level meetings happen but those sitting in mgmt bracket are hardly impacted. Management having employee escalations must be asked to step down.
