    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Cisco is one of those companies that can tell you what is going to happen in 10 years.
    The (sometimes tough) directions the company is taking is showing a great sense of decision-making, strategies and insight.

    As for the employees they are given the best care, best tools, the best hardware, the best trainings I've seen so far in my career.

    Cons

    Most employees are now hired through acquisitions. That was my case.
    It is a good thing in itself, but this is a real problem for the company culture, meant to be open, collaborative and turned towards the future, when former managers looking at surviving the next week come into play.

    You end up in a very interesting situation where the middle management is essentially anti-productive:
    - very short term thinking
    - no decision making, seeking "consensus" (which essentially means hiding until you can't hide anymore)
    - focused on personal career, not on the team development.
    In this environment, blame and backstabbing are very common, and not surprisingly talents get discouraged, or leave.

    I personally loved my job and Cisco, and got caught in the middle of a management lack of decision, rendering months of hard work into dust, where a simple professional discussion could have solved the matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cisco is a GREAT company, with a great culture, great products and a great future.

    It is being wasted by the bureaucracy self-generated by managers who take no decision and just wait there.
    Do something. This company is worth it. Not anyone can be a manager. Being a manager means taking decisions and risks.

    Top leaders should spend more time coaching/replacing middle management when there are clear signs of disfunction.
