    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    I work from home 100% of the time which allows me to maximize work / life balance. It is nice to be treated like they trust you.

    Cons

    I've never had a manager that I felt "advocated" for me. It is a very political environment which I found to be demoralizing.

    They provide the benefits that I think any company should (medical, visual, dental, 401k, etc). I thought it was still very expensive for the employee; I've had much better at smaller companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to improve their communication skills and transparency. I don't find many of the managers to be trustworthy.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    it is a big company, benefit is good. coworkers are professional. Job is not too stressful, job security was good, but not any more.

    Cons

    you do the same thing every day, after some time, not chanllenging enough. a lot of office politics you have to play.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management is kinda old, should replace them with younger people. so new ideas and new concepts can be brought in.
