    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    good place to work. political climate is growing for last several years inside ... it is more like IBM or GE than what it used to be - where getting the job done counted most.

    Cons

    seems most new jobs are being created non-US - even though this is a US based company. too political. too HR driven. too ISO driven.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Good management, nice people, flexibility to work, work life balance. Good wok content, but you need to be patient as you need to prove yourself internally.

    Cons

    salary has stagnated. You join the organisation at high salary levels, but the it tends to stagnate. If you have good negotiation skill you end up with good hikes as they can pay the moon, but it end there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Efforts have been taken to elicit employee feedback, but at times we tend to work in silos. Different corporate culture needs to be eradicated and salary needs to be looked at.
