    I have been working at Cisco Systems India as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cisco gives lot of flexibility in terms of number of hours,work from home option.

    Cons

    No hike every year. Every quarter there is compulsory lay off .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think before laying off the employees. If this culture continues,people will not be interested to join the company.
    Instead of hiring new people and laying off old people, better train the existing employees if they are lagging
