    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    My team had an excellent culture. lots of freedom to work and innovate, good rapport between managers and managed. The benefits were great, and they treated the employees well.

    Cons

    Some elements (such as performance reviews) were constantly changing with seemingly arbitrary effects on employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on operational excellence. Clean out the cruft that impeded inter-team collaboration. Encourage (and budget for) more non-IT tool development.
