    Pros

    Ample opportunities to exploit and good work-life balance. Good training structure for each team, which is timely distributed and contributes to the learning curve.

    Cons

    Not any major ones but sometimes the learning gets stagnant and the work becomes monotonous. But flexibility to move to different work teams keep your motivation high.

    Pros

    Need i say more? Cisco/Google are companies that people dream of. Good work. Lots to learn. Lots of WFH, etc. But, there is huge pressure in People Mgmt Roles.

    Cons

    Money wise I would say there are slightly lesser scale. But, you wont regret that for the brand you get in your resume.

    Pros

    The culture at Cisco is amazing. Very relationship based - with a high degree of respectful debate. There is no shortage of great ideas, nor empowerment to execute on those ideas.

    Cons

    Its been a tough run lately. With layoffs and a big emphasis on location strategy, the stress level is high. In addition, most of the growth lately has been solely due to acquisitions - not core.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes. We have a problem and need to act ASAP!

    Pros

    - good developer community to learn
    - enough opportunities to grow

    Cons

    - its upto the individual to chart his/her growth story
    - politics of hierarchy like many other big companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    employee goals need to be tracked better to ensure continuous growth, this includes correct feedback at regular intervals and not just at the end of the appraisal cycles
