    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.
