    I have been working at Cisco Systems India full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Product design and development was so clear as i[senior developer] was literally involved with many stakeholders like Program management, Customer Facing Engineers, Product Test teams etc. Further my duration of stay[4 years] helped me understand in-and-out of the PowerKey Solution. Thus i was able to handle all customer issues as well. Travelled to OCN Shanghai, China and Den,Delhi on Cisco business trips.

    Cons

    Actually the overall time that you spend in Cisco Systems adds to your professional portfolio and increases the experience of how big multinationals work and deliver solutions to client. Thus sometimes, the project management does not give clear roadmaps on the product.
