    Pros

    Flexibility the biggest plus,Work from home,enormous career opportunities inside,various certification support. The work environment is healthy and we have free to make our own decision .

    Cons

    Nothing as such but they concentrate more on acquiring new firms and hiring new members ,rather investing the same in loyal employees. Some good policies discontinued during recession period that need to be continued now

    Pros

    Leaders in swiching and routing technolgies. And also in datacenter and storage networking technologies like MDS 9000 and Nexus series of switches.

    Cons

    Getting into too many things which would affect core business technologies. Can not think of more than this as it might be agaist ethical.

    Pros

    Flexibility, Open work culture and best in Industry. Cares much about the employees. Technical competency cannot be challenged. Industry leader in internet related technologies.

    Cons

    Too many market adjacencies to focus on that sometimes loses track on what the company should be focusing on and with what intensity.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management is very competent and knows where the company is heading towards. The directions provided by management is sure to make it market leader in all the focus areas.

    Pros

    Cisco is one of the best place to work. You would notice same company culture & standards all Cisco offices across the globe. Cisco gives lot of important to its core values and ethics. You never notice partiality or unethical behavior in your day to day life over here. If you have offer from Cisco, there is no reason to think twice. Cisco pay lot of attention to employee benefits, it doesn’t need to be always cash benefit, other benefits like health insurance, and bonus etc are best compare to industry. Work life balance, flexibility in work, Working from home, Technical exposure, Great Leadership Wonderful internal culture Very relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Pay is slightly lower than market, Promotions and pay hikes takes longer than expected Too Process oriented No travel opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Give importance to technical people and make it as pure tech company as once upon a time. Over the years Cisco became a managers company thus all great people leaving the company due to focus change. Managers are biggest white elephants to company these days. Adjust salary’s and promotions as per market. You should have local policy rather than stick to one single global policy reg promotions and pay hikes.
