I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)
I have been with Cisco for 3 years and I believe overall that this is an outstanding company to work for. This is the first company I have worked for that actually recognizes, values and *compensates* you for hard work. And if you prove to management your value and contributions to the overall company, they will absolutely take care of you when it comes to things such as relocation, education, and schedule flexibility. Since collaboration technologies are a huge part of the business model, there are a lot of remote work options (i.e. work from home, road, etc.) - but this depends on your exact role in the company.
The dreaded "work/life" balance is probably the number one complaint across Cisco employees but it is what you make of it. I know plenty of people that work at Cisco and maintain a pretty close 8-5 work schedule and are highly productive; I know others that work seemingly all hours of the day and night. It's up to you, setting the level of expectation and how efficient you are. But it is extremely easy to get very wrapped up with work and leave little time for anything else.
Advice to Management
Cisco has weathered the storm of numerous disruptors and market transitions over the past 30 years. To remain successful, which I have no doubt they will, they will need to continue to be aggressive on acquiring key talent, intellectual property, and not catch trends from behind (i.e. universal compute, SDN).
