Good place to start but if working in IT, its not a place for career advancement or opportunities

I worked at Cisco Systems

Pros

work life balance, great benefits, for the most part great people to work with, work remotely full time

Cons

no more perks, pay for your cell even though its work related, pay for internet even though you use it to for work, promotions in IT come every 4-5 years, salary and grade levels not at market rate, huge bureaucracy and too heavily process oriented in IT makes it difficult to complete projects in a shorter time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

provide career advancement every 2-3 years and promote the good and great workers. stock options or RSU's not worth it, so give more bonuses and promotions
