    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Creative people, challenging works, flexible work arangements. Good deal of freedom to set direction.

    Cons

    Un-organized, company direction is not clear, unfocused. Resource align is tough to achieve across organizations. Recent lay offs were not well co-ordinated, many surprises.
    Indian mafia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus the company, apply resouces to those area.
