    Pros

    Encourage self starters and ensure you manage/drive your career path within the company. Support innovation and collaboration throughout the company. Your career progression is in your hands.

    Cons

    If you don't like change such as reorganizations or having to continuously update your technical knowledge to keep up with the market transitions, then working at Cisco will be a challenge.
