    Pros

    The company is continuing to grow, creating many new interesting technologies to work on. Compared to other companies the salary is good, even better when you factor in bonuses. The work schedule is very flexible, and they allow telecommuting. Lots of perks like free soda, coffee, popcorn, gym usage, etc.

    Cons

    Some employees must work for remote managers since there are so many different offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a good job, keep it up.

    Pros

    Cisco is such a great place to work--the senior management emphasizes integrity and productivity. For a company of its size, politics are not such a big issue. Cisco is a great place to work remotely too. Benefits and career opportunities are good and compensation is roughly in the mid to high range compared to other comparable companies.

    Cons

    It's hard to ramp up at first--because it's such a large place and there are a lot of internal systems and lingo to learn. Unless you're a director and manage at least 4-6 people, you are in a cube. Sometimes it's hard to know who to reach out to for information on various topics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider converting more buildings into flexible work spaces like building 14.
