    Pros

    If you want to lead a peaceful life with no tensions then cisco is the place for you. I think cisco is a great place for married people as married people need to stike a balance between their married and professional lives.

    Cons

    The downsides are unlimited. Cisco's talent retention policy is pathetic and they dont give adequate recognition to the talent they have. infact in one of the interviews i've heard chambers say that they dont like to hire the best. Cisco is a place for a mediocres. Cisco is the number 1 networking company in the world but from the salaries perspective they are at the 60th percentile.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management is doing a fine job because the work at cisco is so mediocre that any mediocre can do it. I guess thats the reason why they figure at the 60th percentile.
